Real Madrid’s manager Zinedine Zidane left the Welshman on the bench against Eibar and decided to start 19-year-old Brazilian Rodrygo Goes.

Bale in the last hour of the match

Gareth Bale again caught in the eye of the storm in the first match back in LaLiga. Real Madrid’s manager Zinedine Zidane left the Welshman on the bench against Eibar and decided to start 19-year-old Brazilian Rodrygo Goes. Only in the last half hour that Zidane passed and put Bale on the field, although all that could be considered a soulless fragmented player. Something that we saw time after time. The truth is that after 28 match days in LaLiga, Bale added just two goals to Real Madrid. Those were hammered into the gate of Villarreal in September, and Bale looked like a reborn player. Against Celta, Real Valladolid, and the Yellow Submarine, he was positive and showed images of his abilities.

Gareth hasn’t scored since September 1

Today, these outbreaks were well and truly extinguished. Bale hasn’t scored in LaLiga since that September 1st match at Estadio de la Ceramica and has since been removed from Zidane’s plans with the relation between the pairs not having relenting. Comprising Bale with to the events in the top five European leagues shows a sharp decline. It is a player who was once a prolific scorer and had over 100 goals in a Real Madrid t-shirt. Also, he not only scored goals, but he also scored famous, even legendary. Solving the 2014 Copa del Rey, or helping to place the 13th Champions League in the Real Madrid trophy cabinet. For these reasons, it is shocking that in the European elite, 463 players scored more than the Welshman this season.

Players such as Diego Costa moved one in front of Bale after his goals against the Athletic Club. While others like Robert Lewandowski streets ahead with 30 goals in 28 Bundesliga games. Focusing just on LaLiga, 82 players have more than two goals. Five of Bale’s team-mates regularly find the net – Karim Benzema, Sergio Ramos, Toni Kroos, Casemiro, and Luka Modric – while others with whom he is equal – Raphael Varane and Fede Valverde – who have no goalscoring responsibility. With all the records and legendary moments, as well as the salary commanded by Bale, none of the other high sides of Europe has such a case. The current form of Bale is not worthy of the football player that he is, and what a team like Real Madrid requires from its stars. And he is alone. Or at least was.
