This goal is so incredible it doesn't even matter that a Real Madrid player scored it


Barcelona fans are almost never impressed or excited with anything that Real Madrid players do, but even we have to appreciate this spectacular goal scored by Madrid defender Nacho Fernández:

Seriously, this is an incredible goal, especially coming from a defender. Sure, it was just a Copa del Rey match against Spanish Third Division side Cultural Leonesa that Madrid easily won 7-1 without any kind of trouble, but it's still an incredible goal. Nacho definitely wasn't blessed with quality and there's a reason why he's the fourth-choice center-back, but he swam in the finishing lake before this game, that's for sure.

Without Cheryshev in the squad, Madrid are now definitely guaranteed a place in the Round of 16 of the Spanish Cup, although they still have to play the second leg at Santiago Bernabéu next month, because the Copa del Rey rules are stupid and there's a second leg regardless of what happens in the first.

Barça begin their Copa journey next month, against Hércules. Can we score a pretty goal like this?
