Gareth Bale netted Real Madrid's second against Getafe on Sunday night to extend his fine scoring record against Los Azulones.

Gareth Bale has now hit five goals in six games against Getafe after again finding the net against Los Azulones in Real Madrid's 2-0 LaLiga win at the Bernabéu on Sunday.

Seals opening LaLiga win to extend scoring run against Getafe

After Dani Carvajal had headed Julen Lopetegui's men into a 20th-minute lead, Bale fired in a back-post Marco Asensio cross early in the second half to complete a comfortable opening-weekend victory for Real and continue his excellent record against Los Blancos' fellow Spanish-capital outfit.

Bale has only failed to score against Getafe once

Bale's first appearance against Getafe came in gameweek 24 of the 2013-14 LaLiga season and, although Madrid won 3-0 that day, he couldn't get on the scoresheet. However, he was on target next time out against Los Merengues' near neighbours - and hasn't stopped scoring since. That game came during the 2014-15 league season, when the European champions won by three goals again.

In the 2015-16 season, Bale then grabbed his second against Getafe in a 4-1 top-flight victory at the Bernabéu, before also netting in the return fixture at the Coliseum as Real won 5-1, with the Welshman getting the third. Real Madrid's 3-1 LaLiga win last season then saw the 'Cardiff Express' open his side's account.
