Real Madrid vs Liverpool: Giggs backs Bale to win Champions League final

Real Madrid forward, Gareth Bale, has broken former England star, David Beckham’s record for most La Liga appearances by a British player in the Spanish topflight league. The 28-year-old broke Beckham’s La Liga record by starting against Getafe on Saturday night. Bale and Cristiano Ronaldo gave the home side a two-goal lead in the first half, before Francisco Portillo pulled one back from the spot. But Ronaldo, who has now scored 300 goals in LaLiga, wrapped up the win with a 78th-minute header as the game eventually ended 3-1 in favour of the home team. The Wales international now holds the record for the most appearances in a La Liga game by a British player. Beckham, a former Manchester United and La Galaxy star, played 116 times for Real in the Spanish league, scoring 13 times and providing 33 assists. Bale, who has now appeared for the La Liga Champions 117 times, has struggled with injuries in the past 18 months at the Los Blancos. The winger is finally beginning to find his fitness again in the past few weeks. Real Madrid are currently on 3rd position in the La Liga log with 54 points.

Wales coach, Ryan Giggs is hoping to see forward, Gareth Bale, claim a fourth Champions League triumph.

The Manchester United legend is backing his fellow Welshman to help Real Madrid beat Liverpool in the Champions League final on May 26 in Kiev.

Zinedine Zidane’s men are getting themselves prepared for a third successive final appearance, with a historic hat-trick of successes in their sight.

Speaking with reporters ahead of an international friendly date with Mexico on May 29 which Bale will miss due to his European commitments at club level,
Giggs said: “I shouldn’t say this but yeah I hope so [Bale wins].

“No obviously for Gareth, to win it four times, forgetting about the Liverpool aspect. For Gareth personally to win it four times will be magnificent.
