Former Tottenham star Bale struck in the 2-2 result.
â€śI think heâ€™s happy to score his first goal for Real Madrid. He played in a difficult match and he played well, showing his good attitude. It was a hard match for everyone,â€ť said Ancelotti.
Regarding his and Asier Illarramendiâ€™s debuts, Ancelotti said: â€śThey played well. Their performances were good. I didnâ€™t play them for the full 90 minutes because in the first match it isnâ€™t a good idea, so after an hour I took them off."
