GOOOOOAAAAAALLL! An easy finish by Lucas Vazques doubles the lead for Real Madrid.  Bale crosses to Benzema at the back post, he heads it down to Vazquez and the Spaniard taps home. 


Bale was on the verge of doubling the lead as he is presented with another huge opportunity.  Bale surges through into space but fails to send it over Olsen


Gareth Bale draws the first blood, gives the reigning champions 1-0 lead right after returning from half time. A defensive error from Roma is well utilised by Bale, who drags it to his left foot before slotting it in
