I could celebrate scoring against Tottenham in the Champions League – Real Madrid star Gareth Bale reveals
However, Bale would have to wait until next month, to face the Premier League side, which he left for Madrid in 2013. “I scored against Spurs in a pre-season game a couple of years ago and I didn’t really celebrate then,” Bale told the Daily Mail. “I suppose it depends on how you feel on the day. If it’s a 91st-minute winner, can you control yourself? That’s the question.” Madrid begin their Champions League defence at home to APOEL on Wednesday.
