Brace scored twice as Real Madrid beat Levante 2-0 Sunday.

Bale has had his fair share of critics in recent weeks but went a long way to silencing them with this performance. He rifled in on 18 minutes after Cristiano Ronaldo's shot had be cleared off the line and then finished Ronaldo's assist after 40 minutes. The Welshman also shot over as early as the second minute and had a cross deflected onto the woodwork later in the first half. It was a hugely energetic performance by Bale who took seven shots in total and sent in five crosses.

Bale took a game-high 10 shots during Real Madrid's 4-1 win over Real Sociedad on Saturday, though only two were on target. However, he did grab an assist on one of Karim Benzema's two goals, while also finishing with three successful dribbles and two crosses.

Bale moved into Cristiano Ronaldo's spot, with the latter suspended for the match, but the goals went to Benzema (two), James and Sergio Ramos. Ronaldo is suspended for one more game, so Bale should be active again Wednesday against Sevilla.

Bale assisted on Karim Benzema's 27th-minute goal and then scored a penalty in the 89th minute of Real Madrid's 2-1 win over Cordoba on Saturday.

Bale was allowed to take the penalty after Cristiano Ronaldo was sent off seven minutes earlier, and he'll keep the role during Ronaldo's upcoming suspension. Bale has been in excellent form of late, with a goal in three consecutive matches to bring him to 10 on the season, which leaves him fifth in La Liga behind Ronaldo (28), Lionel Messi (19), Neymar (12) and Carlos Bacca (11).
