Reasons why Modric's return will help Gareth Bale improve his recent performances

Gareth Bale scored a brace and put his goalscoring drought to an end against Levante. Turns out that Luka Modric also got his first start in almost 5 months for Real Madrid after recovering from a severe groin injury. Apart from being good friends off the pitch, they played together for Tottenham Hotspurs, so their chemistry is certainly a good one. But how much is Modric responsible for Bale's improvement?

That's exactly what Managing Madrid asked Carlo Ancelotti after the 2-0 win to Levante UD. It will be interesting to see if Bale can contribute the way he's expected to now that he has his good friend back on the pitch. Real Madrid need the Welsh player to be productive once again now that La Liga and the Champions League are at stake. With Bale back in good form, Los Blancos will be able to compete for both titles, there's no question about that.
