Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale scores late winner against Rayo Vallecano

Gareth Bale scored twice as Real Madrid overcame a two-goal deficit to keep the pressure on the Spanish league’s frontrunners with a 3-2 win at Rayo Vallecano on Saturday.

Already without injured Cristiano Ronaldo, Madrid lost Karim Benzema near the end of the first half, three days before their Champions League semi-final first leg at Manchester City.

Rayo led 2-0 in the 14th minute thanks to Adrián Embarba and Ladislao “Miku” Fedor.

Bale pulled one back before Benzema was substituted by Lucas Vázquez, who came through with a headed goal in the 52nd.

Just when Madrid’s rally was sputtering, Bale intercepted a pass and raced forward to score the 81st-minute winner.

Madrid provisionally moved two points ahead of Barcelona and Atlético Madrid before their matches later.
