Bale sets up Son Heung-min before scoring second in 4-1 Europa League last-32 win

Gareth Bale enjoyed a great night as as Tottenham Hotspur registered a 4-1 win in the first leg of their Europa League last-32 clash with Austrian side Wolfsberger on Thursday.

The Welshman set up Son Heung-min for his side's opener. Bale then struck in the 28th minute, taking his tally for the season to five, before Lucas Moura made it 3-0 with a solo effort before halftime.

Hosts Wolfsberger made a match of it after the break with Michael Liendl pulling a goal back from the penalty spot.

It was Tottenham's first away win in the knockout stages of the Europa League since 2008.
