Gareth Bale scored a trademark left-footed Golazo for Real Madrid v Elche

With Cristiano Ronaldo suspended, it was a good time for Gareth Bale to pop up with a trademark left footed Golazo for Real Madrid versus Elche on Saturday.

Real Madrid were winning 1-0 midway through the second half when Bale received the ball from Xabi Alonso and cracked home a glorious strike from a good 30 yards out.

Elche keeper Manu Herrera had no chance and the Bernabeu went wild.

It was Gareth Bale’s 10th La Liga goal of the season and has been described by Marca as “stratospheric”!
