Gareth Bale started for Tottenham Hotspur for the first time in seven years and helped them to a 3-0 win over Austria’s LASK in their first match of the Europa League group phase on Thursday.

Lucas Moura opened the scoring after 18 minutes and Bale’s square pass was turned into his own net by Andres Andrade nine minutes later for a two-goal halftime lead. Substitute Son Heung-min added the third in the 84th minute to ensure a winning start for Spurs to their Group J campaign.

Rangers Just Claimed The Europa League Goal Of The Season

Rangers isn’t playing around in this edition of the Europa League. After getting bounced out last season in the Round of 16, the Scottish giants returned to the tournament on Thursday with a bang.

Rangers opened up Europa League group stage play against Belgium’s Standard Liége. After converting a penalty kick in the 19th minute of the game, one would assume that the Scottish club would hold on to the 1-0 lead. The score line seemed all but certain until Rangers’ Kemar Roofe made everyone’s jaw drop with a terrific goal to double the lead in extra time.

Manor Solomon Ends Casemiro During Shakhtar’s 3-Goal First-Half Blitz Of Real Madrid

It’s not the Santiago Bernabéu, but nobody goes to the home of Real Madrid (temporarily Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano) and puts three past the 13-time European champions INSIDE 42 MINUTES!

After losing 1-0 to Cádiz last Saturday, many predicted a performance of pure vengeance from Los Blancos in the Champions League — a feeling that was amplified by the fact that Shakhtar’s starting lineup was rocked by a combination of injury and illness, including a positive coronavirus test for star forward Júnior Moraes.

Variant Of “Özil Bounce” Technique Leaves Keeper Clawing At Air In Denmark

There are so many subtle, rarely magnified ways in which professional footballers are infinitely better than the rest of us. 

There’s the level of physical fitness that comes with being a professional athlete, amounting to Herculean feats of stamina and mental wherewithal that allow for essentially the same level of play in the first minute as in the 90th, and then there’s the freakish ability to complete a task in one touch whereas it’d take the rest of us five.

Mourinho Left Frustrated By Gareth Bale’s Near-Miss, Tottenham’s Weak Psychology

When Gareth Bale came off the bench in the 72nd minute to begin his second chapter at Tottenham the hosts were 3-0 ahead and cruising against London rivals West Ham United. Little more than 20 minutes later Bale and his teammates trudged off crestfallen after Manuel Lanzini's stoppage-time screamer earned West Ham an unlikely 3-3 draw.

David Silva’s Real Sociedad Goes Top Of LaLiga

A strange weekend in LaLiga that included defeats for both Real Madrid (1-0 to Cádiz) and Barcelona (1-0 to Getafe) ended with Real Sociedad at the top of the table following a 3-0 win over Real Betis at the Benito Villamarín on Sunday. 

Sociedad showed promise last season by advancing to the Copa del Rey final and finishing sixth in the league (the club’s highest standing in seven years), but the return of Martin Ødegaard to Real Madrid and transfer of Diego Llorente to Leeds United seemed like big losses — even with David Silva arriving from Manchester City on a free transfer.
