Gareth Bale scores on Real Madrid comeback, in 2-0 Espanyol win (Official video)

Bale returns!

It was another good day at the office for Real Madrid on Saturday as they beat Espanyol 2-0 in La Liga.

The result means Zinedine Zidane’s side are now three points clear of Barcelona at the top of La Liga with a game in hand.

Isco set up the opener for Alvaro Morata on 33 minutes.

And, it was Isco the provider again on 83 minutes for the returning Gareth Bale to score, just 12 minutes after coming on as a substitute.

Bale had only been back in full training for five days but looked fresh as a daisy as he ran onto the through ball and fired left-footed into the corner.
