In-Form Bale Leads Real To Comfortable Win

Spanish La Liga 

Result: Real Madrid 3-0 Leganes

Date: 06 November 2016

Venue: Santiago Bernabeu

Gareth Bale continued his fine form in front of goal, as he netted a brace to inspire Real Madrid to a 3-0 win over Leganes on Sunday afternoon.

Karim Benzema and Fabio Coentrao have dropped out, with Isco and Marcelo drafted in as their replacements.

After a very slow start to encounter, the first opening arrived after 21 minutes when Bale picked out Alvaro Morata, who headed over the crossbar from close range.

Los Blancos have eventually broke the deadlock after 38th minutes. Isco picked out Bale with a fine pass and the Welshman rounded the goalkeeper to slot into an empty net.

Bale then grabbed his and Real's second on the stroke of halftime as the forward poked home from six-yards out, after getting on the end Toni Kroos' free-kick.

There was some positive news after the hour-mark, as Luka Modric made his return to action, replacing Mateo Kovacic.

Leganes nearly pulled a goal back in the 72nd minute, as Szymanowski skipped past Dani Carvajl, before forcing Keylor Navas into a superb save from distance.

The hosts bagged a third goal after 76 minutes, as Morata latched onto a fine pass from Kroos before calmly slotting his home from 12-yards out.

Real managed to see out the closing stages with relative ease as they maintain top spot headed into the international break.
