In a week that has seen Gareth Bale sign a three year deal with the new BT Sports Channels in the UK that will see him augment his role for Tottenham with a punditry position we are again tipping Gareth Bale for your fantasy premier league team.
Despite Bale scoring a penalty against Croatia during the week it wasn’t enough to stop the Welsh from suffering defeat and their World Cup dream ending. Bale had lkimited chances in the game but if his finishing was a little better on the night then the outcome could have been better for the Red Dragons.
That result compounds a bad month for Tottenham as although they beat Arsenal at the beginning of March, two back to back defeats Liverpool and Fulham have decreased the lead they had over Arsenal in the race for Champions League qualification.
Despite these results Bale has scored and picked up two assists in March making most fantasy premier league owners smile. The surprize defeat against Fulham two weeks ago was a painful one for Bale Owners as many expected a big return from that “easy” home fixture.
An away trip to Swansea sees Bale return to his native Wales and he will be looking to continue his great run of form this season. This game will suit Bale as he has scored more than half his goals on the road this season and is best when playing on the counter attack. Although not the most obvious candidate of the weekend, he is a sneaky outsider to get the captains armband for you this weekend.
