Gareth Bale’s brilliant comeback!

Before tonight, Gareth Bale had been injured for 63 days and there were serious fears about his Real Madrid career.

There may still well be speculation about Bale but the Welsh Express has made a sensational comeback for Real Madrid on Tuesday night at the Bernabeu.

Leading 2-0 from the first leg, Real Madrid went surprisingly 1-0 down to the Spanish third division side on 25 minutes when Luis Milla scored.

The returning Keylar Navas failed to cover himself in glory.

What an assist from Gareth Bale

Bale was introduced on 62 minutes by Zinedine Zidane, despite the fact he was expected to start.

Within a minute Bale pulled Real Madrid level. Yes it was against a third division side but what a glorious outside of the boot assist this is from the Welshman.

Especially after just coming on after over two months out.
