Real Madrid beat Sporting Gijon amid injuries to Gareth Bale and Benzema

Real Madrid

The biggest concern for every new manager joining a big side has ever been the injuries that could hamper his success rate to the worst and Real Madrid’s newly appointed boss Zinedine Zidane seems not interested that anything like this happens to him hence he is not weighing Gareth Bale’s latest calf injury that mush, in fact, 43-year-old Frenchman is confident Bale would join them back soon after an impressive show in the Sunday’s 5-1 La Liga win over Sporting Gijon at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu. Actually, Bale’s form has ever been a cause of concern for everyone at Real and now when he is showing a sign of improvement, his injuries are not letting him perform with his full caliber. He was the one who opened the score tally for his side in the last game making his personal total to eleven in eight played games. Alongside, he got the full support of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema who as well scored two goals each to take Real’s lead to 5-0 at one time. Although, El Molinón side showed some resistance thereafter and shredded off one goal but it was too late by then.

The 26-year-old Wales international did not impart in the second half for his injury and his comeback has since been skeptical but after early medical scans it is now cleared he can join the team sooner than expected. Talking about the game and how they played at home, Zidane said in the post-match news conference, “We played a very good first half, very plugged in, very focused from the start. We prepared well. We are happy with how the game went. First half was spectacular, but we are going to improve. We have to improve a lot, and we will do that. What we want is to win games, but above all at end of the season, as that is when all is decided.

“Obviously it is a fantastic start, to score five goals twice is not easy at all. But I know the team we have, what we can do, what we will do in the future. I expect a lot from this team. To win many games and to win a trophy at the end of the season. This was against Sporting, we will have difficult games, as the season goes on, for sure.”
