Bale put in two crosses, attempted six shots and scored the only goal in the 80th minute of Saturday's win over Real Sociedad.

The winger stepped up as the top attacking option in the continued absence of Cristiano Ronaldo, netting his fourth goal in his last three league matches. His domestic form has yet to translate to the Champions League, where he has just one assist through six starts, but he will look to make the crucial breakthrough in Wednesday's decisive second leg versus Manchester City.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bale played two key passes and scored a brace on six shot attempts during Saturday's 3-2 win over Rayo Vallecano.

The winger was Real Madrid's most dominant offensive player Saturday with Cristiano Ronaldo out of the side, and he responded with his first multi-goal effort since early January. Ronaldo will likely return for Tuesday's Champions League clash versus Manchester City, but expect Bale to remain aggressive as he returns to England to face a familiar foe.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bale will miss Wednesday's match versus Villarreal because of a back injury, the Daily Mail reports.

Bale set a personal best by scoring his 16th La Liga goal Saturday against Getafe, but he was then substituted in the 56th minute because of the issue. Wednesday will be too soon for the winger to return, and it remains to be seen if he is able to suit up for Saturday's game versus Rayo Vallecano.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Real Madrid is ready to begin contract talks with Bale over an improved contract with the club to help fend off transfer interest, reports the Daily Mail.

Bale currently has three years remaining on his current contract, but the Spanish side is prepared to extend that for an additional two years. Bale became the top British scorer in La Liga on Sunday with his 43rd goal.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bale scored a goal on seven shots and added an assist from four key passes during Sunday's win over Sevilla.

The winger seemingly enjoyed the return of Karim Benzema to the lineup, as the two teamed up for a pair of goals. Bale has now played in four matches since returning from injury, making three starts, and he has two goals to go along with an assist during that span. He will look to build off of this performance after the upcoming international break, as Real Madrid look ahead to El Clasico on Apr. 2.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bale (calf) is not in the squad for Wednesday's Champions League match against Roma.

Bale has been sidelined since suffering the injury back on Jan. 17 against Sporting Gijon, and he recently suffered a minor setback that could hold him out for an additional two to three weeks, according to the BBC.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bale attempted four shots, made two key passes, swung in three crosses and scored a hat-trick in Saturday's 5-0 demolition of Deportivo.

The winger is in the midst of an otherworldly stretch, as Saturday's dominant showing gave him eight goals and two assists in his last four matches, each of which saw him earn Man of the Match honors. We are finally seeing the best of Bale as a Real Madrid player, as he has nearly matched his scoring totals from last year despite making just 15 starts in 2015/16. He is showing no signs of slowing down, and Sunday's match versus lowly Sporting Gijon should give him every opportunity to keep it rolling.

RotoWire Fantasy Analysis

Bale took three shots, provided four crosses and scored in the 82nd minute of Sunday's draw with Valencia.

The Welshman has been in excellent form of late, as he has five goals and two assists in his last three matches and has earned Man of the Match honors in each contest. Bale now has an impressive return of nine goals and eight assists in just 14 starts in all competitions, and he appears to be completely in sync with Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema at the moment. Rafael Benetiz was fired on Monday and has been replaced by Zinedine Zidane, but Bale's role should remain unchanged and he will look to continue his fine form versus Deportivo on Saturday.
