The Wales forward could not separate the two matches, and spoke of his honour at having been able to play in both.
Bale made the move to the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu from White Hart Lane last season and scored an all-important derby goal in the Champions League final against Atletico.
“I think they are both equal to be honest. They are both amazing derbies to play in, both sets of fans are both feisty enough for the game as well as the team,” the 25-year-old was quoted by the Daily Mirror.
“They are both very big derbies in the of football and I’ve obviously lucky enough to play in both of them.”
