Madrid draw with Villarreal
international winger Gareth Bale made his first start for Real Madrid in nearly six months and
drove in the woodwork as the Los Blancos tied 0-0 at Villarreal in La Liga.
The former Tottenham Hotspurs player had not played for Madrid since 28 August last year with their
victory 1-0 at Betis.
The 32 year old went too close to score the goal for the visitors but it hit to the crossbar early in the
second half of the game.
The home side forward Arnaut Danjuma shot to the post in the first period, while Madrid’s Luka Jovic
also struck the bar late on.
The Yellow Submarine goalkeeper Rulli made a couple of great saves to deny the shots from Real Madrid’s
players during the game.
After the draw keeps Real four points ahead of second spot Sevilla in La Liga ahead of their Champions League
last 16 facing at Paris Saint Germain on next Tuesday.
Villarreal remain in the six place of La Liga table with 36 points after 24 games so far this season.
