Gareth Bale is serving notice that he is ready to shine without Cristiano Ronaldo, factoring in both goals as Real Madrid wrapped up its US tour with a 2-1 win over Roma on Tuesday.

Bale and Marco Asensio scored for Real Madrid which put on a strong performance especially in the first half of the International Champions Cup friendly at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, AFP reported.

Real Madrid is hoping Bale is ready to fully evolve into the player the club signed for a world record fee in 2013.

The 33-year-old Ronaldo ended a nine-year spell at Real Madrid by recently signing with Italian champion Juventus.

“We’re scoring goals and we’re winning matches, so we’re doing well,” Bale said. “We have to keep improving and we’re really looking forward to starting the new season.”

Asensio, with his third goal of the preseason, opened the scoring just two minutes into the contest. Bale delivered a brilliant pass to the foot of Asensio and he found the back of the net.
