Bale’s hat trick for Tottenham to still dream of the Champions League

Gareth Bale, on loan to Tottenham from Real Madrid, offered his best version this Sunday and, in a great game, boosted Spurs and decided against the already relegated Sheffield United with a spectacular ‘hat trick’. 4-0 final after scoring Son Heung-min also a great goal. After this result, Tottenham is 5th in the table and still dreams of qualifying for the next Champions League, although they are 5 points behind Chelsea and 4th place with 4 days remaining for the final of the Premier.

The Spurs, after the dismissal of José Mourinho now led by Ryan Mason as interim until the end of the season, created danger from the beginning of the game, with chances from Harry Kane (who in the end was left unmarked) and Son. It was Bale who was called to be the star of the meeting.

The Welsh winger marked the first in a great finish, with the toe of his boot, assisted by Serge Aurier, in 36 ‘. In the 51st minute, a goal to Son was disallowed for offside, who sent the ball to Bale in the 61st minute and he beat Sheffield United goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale one-on-one. And the Welshman completed his hat-trick in the 69 ‘(after another pass from Aurier) thanks to a great shot from the edge of the area. The 3 marked with the left foot.

Bale retired as a big winner in 75 ‘, when he was relieved by Steven Bergwijn, who gave Son the assist for the fourth of the night at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. The South Korean scored after a beautiful action, with a spectacular shot. Kane looked for the fifth, but it wasn’t his best night. Sergio Reguilón was able to mark it at the end. But in the end, 4-0 so that Spurs continue to believe despite those 5 points of advantage that Chelsea has.
