A ‘blind’ Bale against the goal
At this point, in his six previous campaigns in Madrid, he always improved the figures he is signing, even in courses in which, as it has happened in this, the injuries are having an important weight in their performance. Last season, without going any further, I had ten targets at this point; The 2014-15 and 2015-16 courses remain the best for him, since on January 17 he had seen the door up to 12 times, in both cases. And in 2017-18, in which he had played practically the same thing that has participated in this campaign (999 minutes that course; 937 ’in the current one), He had seven goals, more than triple that in this 2019-20.It is also true that fortune is being elusive, has been able to score several times and always lacked or a few centimeters left over. As on November 26, when he had in his boots the goal of victory against PSG in the Bernabéu (2-2); his direct foul ended up crashing into the post in the final minutes. Or in the Classic League on December 18 at the Camp Nou, when he finished off the net a Mendy pass, but the play was canceled by a very just offside from the French side. Gareth Bale sees no door. A footballer like the Welshman, who during his career has demonstrated more than enough ability to find a goal (104 goals in 245 games since he arrived in Madrid), he is going through an unusual drought that, in turn, keeps him with his worst statistics since he landed in the white club in 2013. He has only scored in a game of the 14 that has played this course, a double to Villarreal on the third day of LaLiga, on September 1, 2019. Tomorrow, in the duel against Sevilla, 140 days will have passed since that meeting in La Cerámica and the British goal scorer has not moved. Accumulate 686 minutes without scoring; its record dates from the end of the 2010-11 season and the beginning of 2011-12, when added 916 minutes without reason to celebrate a target, still wearing the Tottenham Hotspur shirt. The numbers portray the worst Bale as a Real Madrid player, since his signing was consumed on the last day of August 2013, in exchange for 101 million euros.
