You hardly ever hear anything disparaging about Gareth Bale's €91+ million price tag anymore because he just keeps doing stuff like this. Bale made it 2-0 in 21st minute of Real Madrid's Champions League round of 16 first leg against Schalke by flicking on his invincibility mode and weaving through a couple of defenders in will-destroying fashion.
As long as Bale is healthy, having both him and Cristiano Ronaldo in the same starting XI almost isn't fair.
UPDATE: And just to prove that last point, Cristiano Ronaldo went into stepover hyperdrive and scored one of his own before Karim Benzema made it 4-0.
UPDATE II: When the drubbing finally ended, Real Madrid won 6-1 with two goals each for Bale, Ronaldo and Benzema. Though Schalke only got the one goal, Klass-Jan Huntelaar made it pretty special.
