Zinedine Zidane named the youngest team of his Real Madrid reign, but it was a returning Gareth Bale who helped them past Fuenlabrada.
Gareth Bale provided a superb assist on his return from injury as Real Madrid battled to a 2-2 draw against Fuenlabrada on Tuesday, Zinedine Zidane’s men progressing to the last 16 of the Copa Del Rey 4-2 on aggregate.
Controversial penalties from Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez had given Madrid enough of an advantage from the first leg that Zidane named a team with an average age of 22 years and 156 days, the youngest XI he had picked at the club.
And Bale and Mayoral teamed up again to settle the tie, the Welshman’s initial effort saved by Pol Freixanet only for the young striker to keep his composure and slot in from close range.
