Former Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale scored a fabulous winner as Real Madrid beat Barcelona 2-1.
Gareth Bale scored a memorable winner in the Copa Del Rey final as Real Madrid overcame Barcelona 2-1 at Valencia’s Mestalla stadium.
The Welsh international wizard strutted his stuff on a number of occasions whilst playing for Tottenham Hotspur, and once lit up White Hart Lane following a breath-taking burst of speed to leave renowned Brazilian fullback Maicon in his wake.
His goal against Barcelona, however, was arguably even more impressive.
Picking up the ball inside his own half on the Real Madrid left flank, he burst past young centre-back Marc Bartra before honing in on the Barcelona goal and slotting the ball underneath shot-stopper Pinto.
The goal sparked wild celebrations amongst the Madrid supporters, no more so than Cristiano Ronaldo who was up in the Mestalla stands watching on nervously as Barcelona had taken control of the second half.
It was a goal worthy of winning any final and for Gareth Bale, what better way to finally win his first major trophy than to net a memorable winner against Madrid’s eternal rivals Barcelona.
In the aftermath of the post-match analysis, a number of viewers took to Twitter to display their appreciation with a number of comical memes.
