Gareth Bale has scored some pretty brilliant goals throughout his career for all of the clubs that he's played for, but this could end up being one of the defining goals of his career. With five minutes remaining in the Copa del Rey final and Real Madrid tied up with Barcelona 1-1, Bale came up with this unbelievable individual effort, taking apart the Blaugrana by himself.
At one point during this run, it looked like Marc Bartra had managed to put off Bale enough to prevent him from running in on goal by himself. But Bartra -- who came into this game hurt -- couldn't match Bale's acceleration and got left in the dust. Even though he was forced to take an incredibly indirect route to the goal, Bale smoked everyone.
Remember this goal. It's going to be on Gareth Bale highlight tapes for the rest of his life, and for good reason.
