Madrid: Gareth Bale scored a marvellous free-kick as 10-man Real Madrid eased into the last 16 of the Champions League with a 4-1 win over Galatasaray on Wednesday.

Madrid had to play just under three quarters of the game with a man less after Sergio Ramos was shown a red card for dragging back Umut Bulut as he broke clear on goal.

Bale then opened the scoring with his fifth goal in six games, but Bulut equalised for the Turkish champions just a minute later.
