GIFs: Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale Strike Early to Give Real Madrid Quick Lead
Screengrab

Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale struck early in Germany to give Real Madrid a huge early lead in their round of 16 tie in the Champions League. 

Bale's strike was far and away the more spectacular of the two. The Welshman used some neat dribbling in a tight spot inside the Schalke box before getting off a low shot with his left foot as he went down.

Benzema's goal capitalised on a bit of luck for the visitors. Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo attempted to play a one two in the Schalke box. Ronaldo's return went into a Schalke defender and right to Benzema, who slotted home his finish.
