Real Madrid Snatch A Point At Legia Warsaw After Throwing Away Two-Goal Lead 

Real Madrid players celebrate after Gareth Bale scored a stunning opening goal against Legia WarsawGareth Bale scored the fastest goal in Real Madrid’s Champions League history after just 58 seconds against Legia Warsaw, but Zinedine Zidane‘s team could not win their argument in an empty stadium drawing a bizarre encounter 3-3.

With their Polish hosts playing behind closed doors after crowd trouble in their 6-0 defeat by Borussia Dortmund there were just 150 Real Madrid supporters inside the Wojska Polskiego Stadium to see Bale’s thumping, but elegant, volley from a Fabio Coentrao cross flicked on by Cristiano Ronaldo inside the first minute.

No sooner had UEFA shaken their flag in the centre-circle and blasted out their anthem in the surreal opening ceremony than Bale’s volley hit the top of corner of Arkadiusz Malarz’s net and save for around five ecstatic Spanish radio commentators screaming ‘gol’ and a gasp from those 150 Madridistas the strike bare broke the silence.
