Gareth Bale’s move to Real Madrid with a world record transfer fee has just proved to be a great investment, after a brilliant solo goal against rivals Barcelona gifted the Welshmen his first career trophy as well as Madrid’s first this campaign.

With teammate Cristiano Ronaldo out injured, the Real Madrid star had to be on the top of his game if he wishes to fill the void left by the Portuguese star. Bale truly delivered after scoring another one of his trademark goals by knocking the ball forward and showing his immense pace to beat Marc Bartra before placing the ball through Jose Manuel Pinto’s leg.

Watch the video below as Bale produces a stunning performance to lead Real Madrid to victory and prove his record transfer fee. He even manages to show that he can fill the void left by the injured Ronaldo as he leads his team to victory over Barcelona.
