Real Madrid move fourth as they narrowly beat Huesca

Huesca 0-1 Real Madrid 

Gareth Bale scored the only goal in Real Madrid win

Gareth Bale scored the only goal in Real Madrid win over the bottom side Huesca as they move back into La Liga’s top four.

Gareth Bale’s side-footed volley scored early first half ended his 10 matches without a goal in Spain’s top flight. 

Huesca were close to equalizing early second half but Gonzalo Melero headed wide from close range. Thibaut Courtois tipped a Moi Gomez free-kick over the bar in injury time, and Dani Carvajal headed a Christian Rivera effort off the line from the resulting corner.

The victory means that Real Madrid are five points behind leaders Barcelona, who thrashed city rivals Espanyol 4-0 on Saturday.

They next play on Wednesday, at home to CSKA Moscow in the Champions League, having already secured a place in the knockout round.
