Real Madrid got back to their winning ways on Saturday after two consecutive losses for the first time all aseason. After winning a record 22 straight games, Los Blancos started off the year with back-to-back losses to Valencia and city rivals, Atletico Madrid. Real Madrid got back on track however after a 3-0 victory over Espanyol. 

With Madird already up 2-0 in the 28th minute, Gareth Bale scored on one of the most ferocious free kicks we have ever seen. The ball exploded off Bale's foot and like a fighter jet, took off on a high speed trajectory to the net. Watch the video of the goal in real time below and tell us how fast and fair you think the goal is against the helpless Espanyol defenders. 

Real Madrid also got goals from James Rodriguez and Nacho Fernandez and welcomed back superstar Cristiano Ronaldo who had missed the two previous games. Another star of the game, was beIN sports announcer, Ray Hudson who delivered this colorful commentary of Bale's goal: "He is as explosive as a bomb, but he is as cool as a bomb disposal expert." Sounds like Hudson has watched Hurt Locker too many times, but nonetheless we enjoyed his analogy.
