Hero of the Week: Real Madrid's Gareth Bale

Will TideySenior Manager, GlobalJune 18, 2016

Gareth Bale has had his injury troubles since arriving at Real Madrid, but the flying Welshman appears to have hit his stride at a very good time.

There was a stunning weekend goal in La Liga, followed by his double blast for Madrid against Schalke in the Champions League, a performance that also included an assist.

Cristiano Ronaldo remains Madrid's Batman, but in Bale, they appear to have found a very capable Robin indeed.
