Bale Equals Beckham Record At Real
Gareth Bale Equals David Beckham Record At Real Madrid
Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale recently equalled a LaLiga record set by former Los Blancos superstar David Beckham.
The Welshman started in Real's loss to Espanyol in the league on Tuesday night, and equalled an appearance record set by the Manchester United legend.
Bale has now played 116 times in the Spanish top flight, and shares the record with Beckham for the most appearances made in LaLiga by a British player.
However, the 28-year-old's record-equalling evening did not go as planned as a last-minute strike saw Espanyol snatch a 1-0 win.
Bale has scored 10 goals and assisted a further seven strikes in 25 matches for Real so far this season.
