Real Madrid slumped to a shock 2-0 defeat to Real Betis at the Bernabeu in both teams’ final La Liga match of the season.
It has been a nightmare campaign for Real Madrid and, against Betis, several players struggled once again.
Goals from Loren Moron and former Real Madrid man Jese Rodriguez powered the Beticos to the three points, while for Real it was their third loss in the final four matches of this season to forget for the men in white in the Spanish capital.
As Madrid suffered a 12th La Liga loss of the campaign, Zidane made three attacking changes – bringing on Marco Asensio, Isco and Lucas Vazquez – leaving Bale to remain on the sidelines.
When the full-time whistle was blown to loud boos and jeers from the home crowd, Keylor Navas waved goodbye ahead of his impending exit to all four corners of the ground; however, Bale, after a hug from Quique Setien, immediately went down the tunnel.
It is a sorry end for Bale, who has scored 102 goals for the club in just 231 appearances, including crucial Champions League Final goals as well as vital winners in other competitions.
