Real Madrid: Bale breaks the drought

Real Madrid's highest paid player Bale, gave his team an early lead in their second La Liga Santander fixture against Levante with a left-footed sweep after five minutes into the game.

In doing so, he broke the goalscoring drought with Los Merengues that has lasted for 578 days, since his last goal for the club against Unionistas in the Copa del Rey on January 22 2020.

The Welshman found the back of the net three times during that season, which was his lowest in front of goal during his career in the Spanish capital.

He has only played on six occasions for the club since that goal against Unionistas, as he has spent most of that period on loan at Tottenham Hotspur during the 2020/21 season.

In reality, his goalscoring drought in a Real Madrid shirt has only lasted six games.

Bale has now scored his first goal of the season, and Carlo Ancelotti earlier said that the welsh man would not struggle in front of goal this season shortly after he took charge of the at the start of the season.

"Bale played little [last season], but he scored many goals," said Ancelotti.

Real Madrid fans have high hopes for Bale being lethal in front of goal this season, if he stays fit
