Cape Town - Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale admits he may not be able to stop himself from celebrating a goal against former club Tottenham Hotspur.
The English and Spanish sides are set to meet in the Champions
League, where they have been paired in Group H with Borussia Dortmund of
Germany and Cypriot minnows APOEL.
"I was in a meeting when the draw was made," Bale recalled "and my
phone was going off constantly and I thought, 'something's happened'"
Los Blancos start their campaign this Wednesday at home to APOEL,
while Spurs face Dortmund at Wembley. They will only meet on match-day
three, in mid-October, at the Santiago Bernabeu.
"I scored against Spurs in a preseason game a couple of years ago and I didn't really celebrate then," Bale told the Daily Mail.
"I suppose it depends on how you feel on the day. If it's a 91st-minute winner, can you control yourself? That's the question."
Meanwhile Madrid remain the team to beat even though they haven't spent big as their European rivals in the transfer market and have had a sluggish start to their La Liga campaign.
