VIDEO: Gareth Bale terrorises Almeria and scores for Madrid again

Is Bale worth £86 million still

The former Tottenham attacker netted in the Santiago Bernabeu outfit's 5-0 win on Saturday, and is starting to live up to his superstar status.

After a slow start to life in Spain following a world record transfer, Gareth Bale appears to be proving his worth at Real Madrid.

The former Tottenham man suffered from niggling injuries immediately after swapping north London for the Spanish capital, and his lack of a pre-season held him back in his early days at the Santiago Bernabeu.

However, in the face of widespread criticism, Bale has started to hit his straps and scored again yesterday against Almeria.

The Wales international hit the back of the net in the 72nd minute of Real’s 5-0 win, and impressed with his speed, skill and direct running, as can be seen here.

The strike makes it five goals in 11 games for Los Blancos, with Bale also creating five assists in this time.

With important games in La Liga and the Champions League coming up for Madrid, Bale looks ready to play a major role for the Spanish giants.
