Both players were given limited opportunities in the Carling Cup and Europa League matches last campaign but it would surely make sense for AVB to give Hugo the nod in these games if he decides to rest Brad Friedel.

Bale did his part, opening up the scoring early in the first half of Tottenham Hotspur's friendly match against the Los Angeles Galaxy, but the Galaxy found its response in an unlikely source, as David Junior Lopes' equalizer paved the way for an eventual 1-1 draw with the Spurs at the Home Depot Center on Tuesday night.
