Bale Fires Real Madrid to Victory

Gareth Bale was able to help Real Madrid get a big win by scoring a goal. This also happened to be the first goal that he scored in a timeframe of 100 days. La Liga visit of Real Madrid was thus successful at the El Alcoraz stadium in Huesca. The win that was obtained was a score of 1-0. This helped to volley Madrid ahead; it also helped to lift the team to the Primera Division in the fourth position.

On account of Bale’s performance, this goal that he obtained in a time span of 100 days and 40 shot attempts will help to pacify many critics. This will also help him gain back his confidence. The team also had several youngsters performing well such as Fede Valverde, 20-year-old who played well in this game. The attack strategy of Madrid did help them win the game but the opposing team’s defense had gotten them two goals in the same season and hence, many feel that Solari’s team was simply lucky in this particular match.

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale was among the goalscorers as the defending champions of the La Liga started their title defence on a strong note. Zinedine Zidane and his boys defeated Deportivo 3-0 away to send a strong message to all rivals this term. Goals from Bale, Casemiro and Toni Kroos sealed a brilliant start to the new campaign for the Los Blancos.

Madrid were without Cristiano Ronaldo, who remains suspended following the loss of his appeal against the five-game ban for pushing a referee after sending him off. In the Super Copa clash against Copa del Rey winners Barcelona, Ronaldo scored a brilliant goal and removed his jersey in celebration, earning his first yellow. He was booked for simulation minutes later and had to be sent off. He pushed the referee in anger so LA Liga banned him for five games. Continue reading BALE NETS AS MADRID BEGIN TITLE DEFENCE


Last year, Cristiano Ronaldo’s fitness issues were part of the talking points in the run up to the Euros – the Portuguese had become more susceptible to the natural weariness that comes with averaging a 50-match per season appearance largely based on Madrid’s characteristic runs to the late stages of virtually every tournament they partake in – be it the league, the league cup or the European engagements.

Concerns such as these were hardly raised in the early and peak stages of the Portuguese’s illustrious career. Age coupled with the laws of biology meant as the he got older he had to adjust and become less physical with his play. Continue reading RONALDO’S REST PAYS OFF

Gareth Bale: The Man to Lead Real Madrid to Champions League Glory?

Gareth Bale thought that his season might be over when he went down with a nasty-looking injury back in November, but the Real Madrid medical team have done incredibly well to get the Welshman back to full fitness within the space of just three months.

Since returning to first team action, Bale has been heavily involved; scoring two goals inside one week before he was sent off in Real’s 3-3 draw with Las Palmas at the start of March. It would be fair to state that Bale has been at the centre of attention in recent times, but he can get back down to business now that things appear to have settled down.

Will Bale Ever Return to the Premier League?

Gareth Bale is one of the greatest British footballers ever to make a name for himself on the continent, and has become a pivotal figure at Real Madrid. Not many stars have cut it in Spain before, and few have stayed as long as the Welshman. Throughout history, British players including Gary Lineker and Michael Owen, have always returned to the Premier League after a few seasons in La Liga. Will Bale do the same? Or is he set to live out his playing days in the famous white shirt of Los Blancos?

Bale has contributed to a highly successful period in Real Madrid’s history, helping the club win the Champions League twice in the last four years.

How Long Before Gareth Bale Wins The Ballon d’Or?

Real Madrid paid Tottenham Hotspur a world-record transfer fee of £85 million in the summer of 2013 in order to secure the services of Gareth Bale. The move was completed on the final day of the transfer window and stunned the footballing world. Bale had established himself as one of the best players in the Premier League during his time at Spurs, and it was only a matter of time before Madrid came calling. However, the transfer fee of £85m was more than what Madrid paid Manchester United for Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer of 2009, and the question was whether the Welshman would be able to live up to his price-tag.

As things turned out in subsequent seasons, Bale has been worth the investment for Madrid. The Wales international winger played a key role in Los Blancos’ Champions League triumphs in 2014 and 2016 and in their Copa del Rey success during the 2013-14 campaign. In fact, despite an injury-ridden season in 2013-14, Bale conquered the hearts of all Madrid fans with his goals in the finals of the Copa del Rey and the Champions League.
