Gareth Bale proved to be worth every penny for Real Madrid in the Copa del Rey final.

Bale, who (depending on who you believe) fetched the biggest transfer fee in soccer history last summer in moving to Madrid from Tottenham, delivered an incredible game-winning goal in Madrid's 2-1 triumph over Barcelona, leading the club -- playing without the injured Cristiano Ronaldo -- to its 19th domestic cup title.

Bale, who received the ball at the midfield line, got bumped off the ball and out of bounds by Marc Bartra -- whose goal had tied the game up minutes before -- only to recover, use his foot speed to regain possession and turn the corner on Bartra before beating Jose Manuel Pinto for the 85th-minute winner.
