The Welshman set up Cristiano Ronaldo's winning goal in El Clasico.
Tottenham Hotspur’s title hopes were dealt something of a setback yesterday evening after they drew 1-1 with Liverpool at Anfield.
Harry Kane levelled the scoring with a fantastic turn and shot after Philippe Coutinho had earlier given Liverpool the lead.
Of course Southampton could still do them a massive favour tomorrow and turn over Leicester City at the King Power Stadium – but if not The Foxes will look like being out of sight.
It was a much better evening for former Tottenham hero Gareth Bale.
The Welshman helped Real Madrid to an El Clasico victory against Barcelona – despite going into the game as underdogs.
He set up Cristiano Ronaldo for the winning goal which put Real back in the running for the La Liga title.
Real are also in the running for the Champions League and the Daily Mail quote Bale as stating that a Champions League winners medal and a Spurs title win would be the perfect end to the season:
“That would be great.
“It would be the perfect end to the season.”
Bale must look on with some envy now at the way Spurs are playing under Mauricio Pochettino and think he could have helped Spurs step over the line in pursuit of the title.
Tottenham fans will just hope that Bale’s dream of a Tottenham title win comes true.
