Rafael vs Gareth Bale revisted

2

In an earlier FanShot post this past week, I linked a BBC blog post that discussed Rafael's success vs Gareth Bale in their first encounter. On Sunday, Rafael used a completely different approach, and the BBC examines both approaches. Personally, I like the way Rafael played Bale this past Sunday. He put Bale on his heels at times, and the only thing I would change is that Rafael maybe should have become more defensive after his first booking. Check out our match review vs Tottenham, it discusses why. What say you?
