Gareth Bale struck a hat-trick as Zinedine Zidane enjoyed a winning start to his career as Real Madrid boss with a 5-0 thrashing of Deportivo la Coruna on Saturday.
Bale took his tally to 10 goals in his last seven games with two excellent headers either side of a composed left-footed finish after Karim Benzema had opened the scoring before the Frenchman also smashed home the fifth in stoppage time. Benzeama’s brace also makes it his 10 in 7 games same as Bale. CR7 though was left sad without a goal in the match.
Its a joyful time for Zizou as his time in charge gets off to a good start with the 5-0 blow away of Deportivo. A win like this makes you ask if Real was right to sack Benitez.
In other matches, Messi also got a Hat-trick in the 4-0 whitewash of Granada making the Laliga back to chase with Barcelona 2 points ahead of Real.
