Gareth Bale is ready for new challenges and he’s showing his best level in this start of the season. Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure is a great opportunity for the Welshman to show his quality and lead the new Real Madrid. In these first weeks of the season 2018/19 he has shown that he is ready to take the lead both with Los Blancos and Wales.
Only one year ago, Gareth Bale got injured again in the Champions League game against Borussia Dortmund, missing two months of competition. However, it wasn’t his only injury during that time, and he spent most of the season between the nursery room and the bench. He got fit at the end of the season and he shocked the world with his stunning goal in the Champions League final against Liverpool.
Now Gareth Bale is showing all his potential and has started really well the season. During the international break, he lead Wales to beat (3-0) Ireland and he even scored a great goal, Arjen Robben style. He couldn’t avoid the defeat against Denmark, but Bale again showed a great level and lead the team.
Bale is doing exactly the same with Real Madrid. Julen Lopetegui has decided to form with Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale in the attacking line, with Isco and Marco Asensio behind them. The Welshman is free to move in the attacking line, appearing in both wings with many danger for the opposite goalkeeper. As a result of this, he has scored in all three games in this start of the season in La Liga, being also an important player in the new style of Los Blancos.
The Welshman is now back to the training ground with Los Blancos and he needs to get ready for the next challenges of the team. Real Madrid will face Athletic Club, Roma, Sevilla and Atlético Madrid in the following weeks, so Lopetegui will need the best version of Gareth Bale to continue with the good level shown in these first weeks of competition. Will be this year Gareth Bale’s best season with Los Blancos?
