Gareth Bale reduces substituted opponent to tears

Gareth Bale reduced an opponent to tears during Real Madrid's 3-2 victory over Rayo Vallecano at the weekend.

Anaitz Arbilla endured such a torrid time against the Welsh winger, that he was withdrawn early by his manager Paco, and left to bawl his eyes out on the substitutes bench.

The 26-year-old defender had been tasked with keeping Bale quiet during their Primera Division clash on Saturday evening, but failed miserably as the £86million man produced two assists for Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo either side of the break.

His inspired performance helped fire Real Madrid into a 3-0 lead, and it wasn't long before the fall-guy was held accountable, and hauled off the pitch.

Arbilla was distraught and proceeded to cover his head with a coat to hide just how upset he had been left by his inability to deal with the blistering speed of Bale - with the third goal in particular highlighting the gulf in class between the two players.

Watch footage of Arbilla's teary tantrum in the video above, and check out Gareth Bale's individual highlights from Saturday's clash at Estadio del Rayo Vallecano below.
