Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale celebrated his new deal by scoring the club’s fastest goal in the Champions League with a stunning volley against Legia Warsaw.
The Wales international, who signed a contract extension that ties him to the club until 2022 and reportedly made him the world’s best-paid player on Sunday, broke the deadlock in a game being played behind closed doors in Warsaw after just 57 seconds.
And he did so in spectacular style, lashing a fierce long-range volley into the top-right corner after Legia had failed to clear their lines.
The goal was Bale’s fifth of the season for Madrid.
0:57 – Gareth Bale’s goal tonight is the quickest that Real Madrid have ever scored in the Champions League (57 secs). Rapid.
