Can you name Real Madrid’s XI from Gareth Bale’s debut in 2013?


On 14 September, 2013, Gareth Bale made his long-awaited debut for Real Madrid following his big-money move from Tottenham. How well do you remember the occasion?

Carlo Ancelotti named Bale in a strong starting XI for Real’s trip to face Villarreal in La Liga. The Wales icon scored a first-half equaliser, but in the end they dropped two points in a 2-2 draw.

There’s one for free, but how about the rest of Ancelotti’s starting line-up that night? We’re asking you to name each and every player.

If this gives you a taste for another challenge, why not try to name the 25 players Real Madrid have signed from the Premier League?
