MOST COMMENTED

Gareth Bale, Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema combined for an astonishing seven goals as Real Madrid thrashed Sevilla 7-3 at the Bernabeu on Wednesday. While Ronaldo scored a hat trick, Bale and Benzema each registered two goals and two assists in what was by far the most devastating offensive performance by Los Blancos since Carlo Ancelotti took charge.

After the game, Ancelotti singled out world record signing Bale for praise. "Tonight everyone saw the real Gareth," Ancelotti said. "He played really well, showing fantastic skills. It takes time but it was a necessity, now he doesn't have problems physically and he is improving his confidence so he will be very important for us in the future."

For his part, Bale suggested he might have turned a corner with Wednesday night’s performance, which marked both his home debut in La Liga as well as his first full game since joining Real from Tottenham Hotspur for $138 million. "It was important for my form," the Welshman told reporters. "After not having a normal preseason I have to keep building rhythm so I can give my best. Obviously I need time to improve physically but I am very happy to have played 90 minutes. Now I need to keep improving and working hard and I will try to be at 100 percent as soon as possible."
