Bale Scores 100th Real Madrid Goal as They Defeat Athletico with 3 goals

CAIRO, Feb.9 (SEE)- Gareth Bale reached a landmark achievement, taking his Real Madrid tally to 100 goals in all competitions, as Los Blancos beat rivals Atletico Madrid 3-1 away from home, securing second place in La Liga.

Santiago Solari’s side opened the scoring when Casemiro was left unmarked and he sent an acrobatic volley flying past Jan Oblak as Atletico failed to clear a corner.

Atletico levelled as Griezmann chased onto an Angel Correa through-ball to slot under Thibaut Courtois, who had toy rats thrown at him by Atletico fans. The Belgian spent three seasons on loan at Atleti from Chelsea earlier in his career.

Ramos scored his eighth penalty of the season to restore Real’s lead after Vinicius Jr had been fouled by Jose Maria Gimenez. Four of his previous seven had been ‘Panenkas’ chipped down the middle – but this time he drove the ball into the bottom left-corner.

Vinicius was replaced by Bale in the second half and the Welshman smashed a low shot beyond Oblak for his landmark Real goal in his 217th game.
