Gareth Bale apparently DOESN’T miss Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid, as he thinks that Real is playing better without him.

Gareth Bale thinks that Real is better without Ronaldo.

Cristiano Ronaldo has finally scored his debut goals for Juventus.

It took him 4 matches and 28 shots to score the goal, but score he did.

Obviously, the pressure has been lifted from Ronaldo, while things got complicated at Real.

Real Madrid dropped their first points in the league, after failing to beat Athletic Bilbao.

Real has been great until this match, as Bale really stepped up this season.

Its strange that Real failed to beat their opponents in the same round, as Ronald scored his first goals for the new club.

Despite this, Bale doesn’t really miss Ronaldo.

Bale spoke for the Daily Mail about Real without Ronaldo, and he had this to say.

“Obviously it’s going to be a little different from having such a big player there. It’s maybe a bit more relaxed, yes.

“I suppose there is more of a team, more working as one unit rather than one player.”

To be honest, Real does look like a team without Ronaldo, than before with Ronaldo.

“I suppose there is more of a team (without Ronaldo)!”

Still, a match against Athletic showed that Real is missing someone that could decide matches like that.

Real would have probably won the match with Ronaldo, but could only settle for a draw without him.


Editors’ pick


Bale is showing a fantastic form for Real, but his injury proneness might be a big problem for Real.

In any case, Real is second in the league behind Barca, with Bale and Benzema finally performing to their standards.

We’ll see what will happen in La Liga this season, but Barca does seem to have the best squad in the league, while Real might end up missing a player of Ronaldo’s quality.
