Real Madrid did enough on its own merit to take care of Real Sociedad in Sunday’s 4-0 win over the Txuri-urdin, but the home team did plenty to help out.
A combination of both of these facts is in play on Gareth Bale‘s long-distance goal in the 66th minute. Sociedad goalkeeper Claudio Bravo immediately wants his awful punt back, but what Bale does with the error is downright nutty.
The Welsh wonder lashes the ball with tangy zip, low and past the diving keeper.
It’s so surprising that the broadcast producer okays the “Sure, skip over to the cute kid with his dad” shot and has to dart back in an attempt to catch Bale’s goal.
