Real Madrid are leading Espanyol 2-0 at half-time in the Bernabeu and their second goal is a strike that Spurs fans will be familiar with.

Gareth Bale was preferred to Cristiano Ronaldo when it came to taking the free-kick and he justified the decision with an amazing left-footed effort which cannoned on off the post.
