Stats reveal Gareth Bale 100% right to feel frustrated at Real Madrid

Stat Attack | Posted on by
Ahead of Real Madrid's trip to Turin on Wednesday, daily fantasy football game Oulala.com have compared Gareth Bale's stats to teammates Karim Benzema, Marco Asensio and Isco to reveal why the Welshman is right to feel frustrated following his snub in the Champions League Quarter-final first leg against Juventus last week. 
 
Karim Benzema and Isco both started, while Marco Asensio appeared from the bench for the final 16 minutes in Turin last Tuesday. However, Gareth Bale was an unused substitute in Madrid's 3-0 first leg victory over the Italian champions. 
 
Although Bale was deemed surplus to requirements by manager Zinedine Zidane, largely due to the brilliance of a certain Cristiano Ronaldo, the Welshman's stats this season in fact suggest he's far more deserving of a spot in Madrid's starting XI ahead of Benzema, Isco and Asensio.
 
As Oulala.com's infographic shows, Bale has taken far fewer minutes to either score or assist in La Liga and the Champions League this season when compared Zidane's more favoured trio.
