With 11 league games still to go, Bale points out there is still plenty of work to be done.
The world's most expensive player said on his club's website: "This was a very important result due to the result in Valladolid.
"We were really motivated to get the three points and we're very happy with this win.
"We're in a good position in the league, but there are still a lot of difficult games left.
"We must maintain this good run and the good form we're in."
