Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale Scores Twice Against Villarreal
Gareth Bale scored twice for Real Madrid as Villarreal were twice pegged back on Sunday night before being sent off in injury time.
The Welshman came within hours of leaving the club this summer at the wish of Zinedine Zidane but has now started all three of the club’s Liga games this season, adding two goals on Sunday night to an assist against Celta Vigo.
Villarreal had taken an early lead through Gerard Moreno but Bale equalised on the stroke of half-time.
Moi Gomez put the hosts back in front but Bale struck again late on.
But, Bale will now sit out the home visit of Levante after the international break having been twice shown a yellow card late on.
Real Madrid then travel to Paris to face PSG in the Champions League group stages.
