His most effective asset was his unreal pace. One can never forget his goal in the “El Classico” in the Copa Del Rey of 2014. He beat Bartra with sheer pace and single-handedly ran half of the pitch with the ball and scored a stunner. He was so quick for Bartra that Bartra was about to fall face-first into the ground while chasing Bale. Another moment of magic was in the final of the 2018 UCL. He showed sheer brilliance in that game. It is said that big players come to the party when it matters the most, and this was one such incident. He also scored a bicycle kick in that final.
