Bale on the mark as Madrid defeat bottom side

Real Madrid's Welsh wizard Gareth Bale finally ended his goal drought

Real Madrid's Welsh wizard Gareth Bale finally ended his goal drought

Bale, who shook off a knock in time to start the match, looked risky throughout and could have added to his tally, but Solari will have been frustrated by the ease with which Huesca might have equalised had their finishing been less wayward.

The narrow victory, secured thanks to Gareth Bale's eighth minute strike, put Madrid fourth, just four points behind leaders Barcelona.

Bale put a halt to his longest spell without scoring in the league since joining Real as he expertly cushioned in a volley from an arcing cross by Alvaro Odriozola on eight minutes.

"Real Madrid are one of the best teams in the world", Rodriguez told a press conference.

A swerving David Ferreiro shot drew another smart save from Courtois as Real withstood a spirited fightback from the hosts, but Bale continued to threaten and forced two further saves from Jovanovic.

Real Madrid will face off against Huesca at the Estadio El Alcoraz stadium in La Liga today.

Indeed, first-half substitute Gonzalo Melero was presented with a golden chance to head home from close range, but somehow missed the target. Leo Messi scored two free-kicks in the game.

The singer broke up with Mac Miller in the spring before embarking on a whirlwind romance with Pete Davidson . Clad in a lavender dress and thigh-high boots, Ariana was practically glowing when she hit the pink carpet.

"We'll have to come out and go for the win right from the first whistle".

Nacho Fernandez and Casemiro are still continuing their respective recovery processes on injuries which they sustained during Real Madrid's 4-2 win at Celta Vigo a few weeks back.

"I haven't got an established starting line-up", Solari added. Fresh from winning the Ballon d'Or Luca Modric is in the side. Bale, Benzema & Vasquez make up the front three. The Columbian number 9 scored 16 goals last season, and will be a handful! Twice tested Huesca keeper Aleksandar Jovanovic from long range and generally looked like Real's most risky attacker during his time on the pitch. We are set for kick-off at 18:15 on HD 3!

DF Raphael Varane, 7 - Slowly coming back to form, his speed across the ground was useful when Huesca threatened to break. So it's nearly going to be a cup tie for Los Blancos, who are used to be playing in front of 81,044 at the Santiago Bernabeu!

Good afternoon! Welcome to the Live Updates of Huesca Vs Real Madrid in La Liga!

Huesca, bottom of the table with a meagre seven points and without a win since the opening day of the season, did not lay down against the European champions though, and it took a flying save from Thibaut Courtois to prevent Ezequiel Avila levelling soon afterwards. Join the The Real Champs team!
