Gareth Bale is a magician

Real Madrid look well on their way to absolutely destroying Schalke 04. They're already up 2-0 in Gelsenkirchen after just 21 minutes, with the second coming from Gareth Bale. He had a huge part in the first goal, then pulled off this insane dribbling run for the second.

Okay, yes, the defending is awful, but this is still an incredible run and finish. How does someone keep any control of the ball and hold off that many defenders in that situation?
