Gareth Bale reacts to Real Madrid win v Liverpool in Champions League

Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale, formerly at Tottenham Hotspur, enjoyed Real Madrid’s easy 3-0 away victory over Liverpool in the Champions League.

Gareth Bale could not play for Real Madrid on Wednesday, but that did not prevent him from enjoying the match.

The Wales international winger was ruled out of the Champions League Group B clash against Liverpool at Anfield with an abdominal injury.

The former Tottenham Hotspur star was watching the game on television and was understandably delighted with his teammates’ display.

 

Anfield is indeed a tough place to pick up a win, but Madrid made a mockery of that notion on Wednesday.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side were in control of the match from start to finish and wrapped up the points in the first 45 minutes.

Cristiano Ronaldo opened the scoring on 23 minutes with what was his first ever goal at Anfield (click here to read more), and Karim Benzema added two more.

Liverpool were the underdogs for the match and the loss should not come as a surprise to anyone. This Madrid side is a goalscoring machine, and they showed that again on Wednesday when they pretty much streamrolled the Premier League outfit.
