His two goals help Real Madrid stay one point behind Barcena. He was carrying a nine-game goal drought.

Gareth Bale had gone scoreless for the past nine games, but on Sunday against Levante, two goals silenced many of those who criticized him. One of the happiest persons to see the Welshman score was his coach, Carlo Ancelotti.

“Bale looked more motivated and more hungry,” Ancelotti said.

During the week, there had been many reports suggesting that Ancelotti should drop Bale from the starting formation. The Italian manager quickly responded by mentioning that neither Cristiano, Benzema nor Bale would be benched.

For the coach that is on his second season with the team, Luka Modric’s return is something that really benefits Bale’s game. The two of them played together in Tottenham and know each other well.

“The presence of Modric offers more depth for Bale to link up with his team-mates,” the manager added.

The return of Luca Modric is a piece of great news for Gareth BaleThat really seemed to be the case. As Modric had more minutes on the pitch, Bale was able to play with more freedom on both ends of the field. The Spanish newspaper Marca praised Bale’s performance in Sunday night’s game.

"Bale took to the pitch against Levante with a different attitude to the one he had displayed in previous matches. 

The 25-year-old player also could not hide his emotions during and after the game. When he scored his first goal, he covered his ears and kicked a corner flag. A similar burst of emotions surfaced when he scored the second one.

“Delighted to get back on the scoresheet and win,” Bale said after the game at Santiago Bernabeu.
