VIDEOS: Real Madrid put on scoring clinic complete with bicycle, header and free kick goals

We all know Real Madrid, along with Barcelona, are meant to dominate La Liga to the point where it kind of isn’t fair. Even having said that, Real Madrid went on a scoring tear against Real Betis and it looked like players just went out of their way to try and score the most “magisterial” goal they could. Has anyone checked on Ray Hudson after this game?

The first goal was scored within a couple minutes as Gareth Bale took the perfect James Rodriguez pass and headed the ball in for the first goal. While this goal looked nice, it was crap compared to what else he came up with.

The next goal was this blinding free kick by James Rodriguez. The strength of this goal as well as the added degree of difficulty made this a goal to behold.

After a Karim Benzema headed goal to make it 3-0 Real Madrid, James came back to set up and score a terrific bicycle kick for 4-0.

It even got so outrageous that Sergio Ramos tried to get in on the fun. He tried his own bicycle kick but it went off the post and bounced outside the goal.

Mercifully, the game ended but not without Real Madrid scoring another goal. This time, Bale didn’t got with the bicycle, didn’t go with the header, Bale just went full power and strength and drilled in the shot from distance. Real Madrid would win 5-0 over Real Betis.

Whew, just insanity at the Bernabeu. Maybe this silenced those saying Rafa Benitez was interested in playing “defensively.”
