Gareth Bale took just 13 minutes to mark his Real Madrid comeback with a goal after 88 days out injured.
The Cardiff Express came on with 20 minutes left and just 13 minutes later pulled away from Espanyol’s defence on to Isco’s pass to draw the keeper and slot the ball into the far corner in Real Madrid’s 2-0 win.
Madrid have missed the pace, power and precision of their most expensive all-time signing. He injured tendons in his right ankle on November 22 and was operated on in London on November 29.
But all that was behind him as he left the Espanyol  defence behind to seal three points for Real Madrid and send the team four points clear at the top with a game in hand.
Bale tweeted in midweek that he could not wait to return after Madrid’s home win over Napoli – a game he had asked to play in. Zidane resisted the temptation without any problems and was rewarded with a goal.
He is now on course to play from the start in three very difficult away games for Real Madrid in the next three weeks –
Villarreal next weekend, Eibar seven days later, and Napoli in the San Paolo stadium on March 7.
