“It's nice to score but the most important thing was getting the three points”, he said.
Bale killed off the game at Anoeta with a spectacular goal, full of power and a perfect finish. The move began with a pass from Isco to the Welshman, who set off in behind the Real Sociedad full back Rodrigues. His speed and power shone through in the 70 meters he covered giving him a small advantage when arriving in the area of the team from San Sebastian. Once in a finishing position, Bale beat Rulli with a subtle left-footed finish, lifting the ball over the goalkeeper to make it 3-1. The Welshman has scored in the five games he has played in Anoeta and is the player to have scored the most goals against Real Sociedad at their stadium (6).

The Whites’ player was asked for his thoughts after the game: “The most important thing was to get the three points in what was a must-win game for us. It’s nice to score and I felt comfortable, but the crucial thing was the victory for the team. Getting jeered is part of football and I can’t control that. All I can do is work hard to make sure it stops happening. I know I’m not in the best form, and I know I can do a lot more, it’s just a case of being patient”.
