Bale Inspires Real Madrid in 6-0 Rout of Celta

Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale made a convincing case to be considered for a starting berth in the Champions League final against Liverpool with two scorching strikes in his side's 6-0 hammering of Celta Vigo on Saturday.

Bale has endured an injury-hit campaign at Real and there has been fresh speculation that he could leave the club this summer, but the Welsh global starred in Saturday's 6-0 rout over Celta Vigo.

Cristiano Ronaldo is sowing seeds of dissent at Anfield as Real Madrid and Liverpool prepare for the Champions League final.

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.

The victory for Zinedine Zidane's side means they can still catch Atletico Madrid into second place on the final weekend.

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.

The La Liga match between Real Madrid and Celta Vigo will be broadcast live on beIN Sports.

Neymar, 26, has been strongly linked with a move to Madrid in the off-season, although Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi insisted Saturday the Brazil worldwide was going nowhere.

The visitors were quick to look for a reply minutes later, but a shot from Maxi flying wide was the closest they came to a goal.

Keylor Navas reacted sharply to keep out Wass' 40th-minute header, by which point Madrid were already operating at cruise control.
