WATCH: James Rodríguez scores a bicycle kick

Great goal by the Colombian player.

As if he was trying to prove how good he is, James Rodríguez scored this thing of beauty having already provided Real's second goal off a free-kick. The Colombian player came off the bench during Real's 0-0 draw against Sporting Gijón and he is battling with Isco for a starting spot, something that should be given to him after performances like this one.

Real Madrid are comfortably dismantling Betis. Gareth Bale scored Real's opening goal on the first minute and Real cruised ever since. Bale and James are shining while Cristiano Ronaldo hasn't managed to score just yet.

Keylor Navas made a memorable save right before the halftime whistle and the Bernabéu sang his name. Will this change Pérez's mind about David De Gea? The Costa Rican is in good form and the fans don't want to see him leaving, so De Gea could wait a year before signing for Real as a free agent.
