Bale's goal scoring comeback earns this Barça ace some cruel trolls

The Welshman returned to the pitch after 88 days on the sidelines due to an injury. His goal helped secure a 2-0 win against Espanyol.

It's all sunshine and rainbows after Gareth Bale's goal scoring comeback for Real Madrid...but that doesn't apply if you are Neymar.
The Welsh ace returned to the pitch almost three months after his last performance for Los Blancos, and he needed just 13 minutes to make his presence felt by scoring an impressive counter attack for Zidane's men.
These numbers might show you why he is such a relevant player for Zidane's crew.

But as fans celebrated his return, a name kept popping up on social media: Neymar. The Brazilian ace hasn't been quite himself this season, and fans reminded him what a poor goalscoring season he's having by comparing Bale's stats to his own numbers.

"In 20 minutes, Bale has scored the same amount of goals Neymar has in three months, even after 88 days injured. And rest easy, he won't go out and party because of it."
Moments after the game ended, the man himself thanked the team's fans via Twitter.
