Gareth Bale opened the scoring for Real Madrid in each of the last three La Liga seasons, but ultimately every time he played a supporting role in Cristiano Ronaldo's show.Having helped create the first goal and convert the second to get new coach Julen Lopetegui's debut La Liga campaign off to a winning start, comparisons to Ronaldo were natural.Ronaldo's presence at the Bernabeu was undoubtedly a draw and, without signing a replacement, Madrid are depending on Bale to become the team's new talisman who has the pulling power to draw in the masses and fire the team to glory.
