Marca claim Gareth Bale Golazo v Elche travelled at just over 100 km/h
It is fair to say the Madrid media enjoyed Gareth Bale’s Golazo for Real Madrid versus Elche on Saturday.
Not only was it the goal that gave Real Madrid some breathing room, as they went top of La Liga, but it was surely Bale’s best yet for Real Madrid.
Bale was typically understated about the goal after the 3-0 win: “The most important thing is the three points… I am happy to score a nice goal…”
Marca described the goal as “like a missile violently hitting the crossbar” and they have measured the strike as just over 100 kilometres an hour.
This was Gareth Bale’s 10th La Liga goal of the season, the Welsh forward has claimed 13 in total in 2013/2014.
