Bale beauty sees Real Madrid break Barcelona goalscoring record

Los Blancos netted for the 30th consecutive game in Europe's premier club cup competition thanks to a sensational free kick from their Welsh winger
Real Madrid have set a new Champions League goalscoring record after finding the net against Galatasaray on Wednesday night.

Gareth Bale's stunning free-kick 37 minutes into the clash against the Turkish champions at the Santiago Bernabeu made it 30 consecutive games in which the Blancos have scored in Europe's premier club cup competition, thus surpassing the previous high of 29 set by Liga rivals Barcelona.

Madrid plundered a remarkable 76 goals across their previous 29 ties in a run stretching back to April 2011, when they failed to register in a 2-0 defeat in the first leg of their semi-final clash with the Blaugrana at the Santiago Bernabeu.

Bale's strike was also the 15th Carlo Ancelotti's side have racked up in just five matches in this season's competition.
