Real 6-0 Celta: Bale scores brace in Los Blancos classic win

Gareth Bale scores twice as Real Madrid record a 6-0 win over Celta Vigo in Saturday night's La Liga clash at the Bernabeu.

Nine minutes from time, it was six as Toni Kroos completed the comprehensive rout with an easy finish into the bottom corner from a square ball by Dani Carvajal.

Bale burst onto Luka Modric's pass to smash home a low opener and scored a fantastic second, cutting in from the right, nutmegging Jonny Castro and shooting from a hard angle. Real Madrid started with a good move up front in the attack as Luka Modric set up Hakimi Acraf in the right wing, but the Moroccan final pass in the box was cleared by Celta Vigo defence in the 5th minute.

The visitors' keeper, Sergio Alvarez, had no chance for the second after 30 minutes, as Bale, out wide right, fooled his marker and came inside to power a left-foot shot past Alvarez.

Gareth Bale bagged a brace while Isco, Achraf Hakimi and Toni Kroos were also on target for Los Blancos as they put Celta to the sword in the Spanish capital, where Sergio Gomez scored at the wrong end to make it six on the night.

Lomachenko and Linares showed the same weight
He said at the post-fight news conference that he injured a hand in the second, but it was hardly noticeable in his performance. He threw 71 punches in the seventh, 93 in the eighth and 102 in the ninth, as he attempted to capitalize on the knockdown.

Isco floated a pass deep into Celta's problem left channel, where a rampant Bale cut inside by nutmegging Jonny and lashed into the top corner from a narrow angle.

Isco then made it 3-0 to the European champions just two minutes later when he curled the ball beyond Alvarez from outside the box. There was to be no hat-trick for Bale, however, with the Welshman replaced in the 72nd minute of the contest.

Zinedine Zidane's side were ruthless in their final home game of the season as they put behind them the midweek defeat to Sevilla.

Real Madrid had their fifth in the 74th minute though when Gomez turned a low Asensio cross into the back of his own net.

Madrid battle Villarreal in their last game of the season and they will hope they can finish on the log ahead of Diego Simeone's men, while Celta Vigo face Levante.
