After missing three months with injury, Real Madrid star Gareth Bale returned in style on Saturday against Espanyol. Just 12 minutes after coming on as a second-half substitute, the Welsh attacker scored a fine goal on the counter to give Real Madrid a 2-0 lead. Take a look: Well, he sure looks fit with that effort. And it’s good timing for Real Madrid to get him back. In first place in La Liga and with one foot into the quarterfinals of the Champions League, Real gets one of the world’s best goal scorers back, which boosts the attack big time and takes pressure off Cristiano Ronaldo. And if he can score more goals like this, there is no reason why Real can’t win both La Liga and UCL.
