Gareth Bale got another goal as Real Madrid won 5-0 at Almeria [Individual highlights]
Gareth Bale stats for Real Madrid are starting to look formidable.
After a difficult summer hampered by injuries and a lack of football due to his prolonged move from Tottenham, Gareth Bale has now played 11 games for Real Madrid, scoring 5 goals and chalking up 5 assists.
In a far from vintage display against Almeria, Bale threatened down the right, threatened down the left, threatened in the air, before eventually scoring.
Bale’s goal was a piece of opportunist play as the Welshman pressurised Almeria defender Sebastien Dubarbier into giving the ball away near his own net, and Bale duly gobbled up the chance from close range.
While the first half of season was tough, there is ever possibility that Bale will hit the heights everyone knows he is capable of in the back end of the season.
Highlights of Gareth Bale’s performance for Real Madrid at Almeria are below.
