Bale's third Champions League goal of the season nudged Madrid in front in an engrossing contest at the Stadio Olimpico, profiting on an error from Federico Fazio, with Vazquez then tapping in the decisive second. The match starts at 21:00 on 27 November 2018. After rumors began to swirl that the Real Madrid board was growing exhausted of Bale's lack of determination and were ready to move on from him, the number 11 came up huge.

Roma had two more opportunities 10 minutes before the break, but Patrick Schick saw his close-range attempt kept out by Thibaut Courtois, before Aleksandar Kolarov flashed a powerful effort just wide of the post.

One clearance in the first half was miraculous and though Roma's rapid attackers caused Madrid problems in defence, the World Cup victor was solid.
