Bale scores 100th goal as Real Madrid goes 2nd on Laliga table.
Gareth Bale on Saturday made his 100th goal at Real Madrid after Casemiro and Sergio Ramos scored as Los Blancos beat rivals Atletico Madrid 3-1 away from home.
The Los Blancos defeated bitter rivals Atletico Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano for the first time to move them up to second in LaLiga.
Real Madrid had a morale-boosting in their 1-1 draw with Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semi-final first leg on Wednesday and they produced another resilient display to beat Diego Simeone’s men on their own domain for the first time since their meeting at the Vicente Calderon in November 2016.
Atletico conceived two goals in half-time at the Wanda for the first time, as Sergio Ramos’ penalty added to Casemiro’s spectacular opener after Antoine Griezmann had equalised, with a little thanks to VAR.
However, Bale’s landmark goal came after much pressure in the second half and finished off their opponents 16 minutes from time through substitute before Thomas Partey’s late sending off.
