Gareth Bale scored in his third consecutive final after helping Real Madrid lift the Club World Cup in Morocco. This was seen as the ultimate prize for this Madrid team that lifted the Copa del Rey and the Champions League last season.
Bale scored in both these matches, as he managed to show that he was worthy of the world record transfer fee of £ 85 million that was paid to Tottenham for his services. He has continued on his scoring spree after getting the second goal against San Lorenzo in the final. His goal came after defender Sergio Ramos put the favourites ahead in the first half.
Incidentally, Ramos scored in both legs of the semifinals and the final of the Champions League. Read more »
Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale is in contention to face Liverpool after returning to training.
Gareth Bale had been suffering from a buttock injury but is now all set to comeback. It has been reported that Real Madrid is all ready to welcome him back and he will be playing for the Champions’ League group game at the Bernabeu. This has recently punctuated troubles for Liverpool. Gareth has almost missed five games till now because of the injury but he has now returned to training right in time. People are looking to get their place secured in the last 16 with the European tie coming up.
Real Madrid has already won a game after Gareth’s comeback. He has recovered and also joined the team in a recovery session. Most probably he shall be completely fit to join Cristiano Ronaldo for the visit of Liverpool. Gareth has joined the team or the main group for the week’s last training session as stated by a Real. The training was of a series of demanding dribbling, shooting circuits and as well as passing. This was basically for the ones who had not started in Granada and were outfielders. This included Gareth too. Real Madrid has been of late in a very good position and has been playing really well.
Everyone is very happy with the game that they are playing and the only thing they need to do is to keep up the spirit and keep playing well. They need to also keep trying to add more and more to their game. There is always room for improvement. Since the first meeting last month between Liverpool and Real Madrid their fortunes have been very different and contrasting. The club’s problems are further being exposed after the loss at Newcastle United.
