Real Madrid can win UEFA Champions League, says Gareth Bale

Gareth Bale's goal against Galatasaray in the UEFA Champions League clash was his fifth in his last six games as he has began to find top form following his reported 91 million euro (USD 124 million, 76 million pounds) move from Tottenham Hotspur in September.

Madrid: Gareth Bale believes Real Madrid have all it takes to end a 12-year Champions League title drought as they cruised into the last-16 with a 4-1 win over Galatasaray on Wednesday.

Nine-time winners Madrid made light of Sergio Ramos' sending off midway through the first-half as Bale opened the scoring with sumptuous dipping free-kick from 35 yards to put the hosts in front.

Umut Bult levelled for Galatasaray a minute later, but, despite the numerical disadvantage, Madrid were rampant after the break as goals from Alvaro Arbeloa, Angel di Maria and Isco extended Carlo Ancelotti's men's unbeaten run to six games, in which they have scored 26 goals.
