Cristiano Ronaldo Humiliates A Defender And Gareth Bale Scores A Stunner

Real Madrid defeated Espanyol 2-0 with Gareth Bale returning and scoring.

After putting three past tournament dark horse Napoli on Wednesday, Real Madrid quickly turned around and showed just how frightening a prospect they are this season by defeating Espanyol 2-0.

The gap on Barcelona is four points, and Real maintain a game in hand. Cristiano Ronaldo, having just celebrated his 32nd birthday, remains a wizard on the wing. And they said he couldn't dribble anymore.

But the best news for Madridistas was the return of Gareth Bale after a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to an ankle injury. Bale scored the kind of goal that’s a staple of his play, screaming down the wing and finishing with style.

Next up for Real is a trip to Valencia on the 22nd.
