How Madrid’s liquid football gave birth to a beautiful team goal?

Karim Benzema dropped to the centre circle to restart the attack for Madrid after shrugging off a challenge from a Shakhtar defender before locating Valverde.

The Uruguayan found Rodrygo with a one-time pass, who, after controlling the ball, played a give-and-go with Benzema to cut open the defence of Shakhtar before releasing Vinicius into space.

Receiving the ball from his compatriot, Vini coolly planted the ball beyond the reach of the onrushing Donetsk goalkeeper.

How did online commentators react to Madrid’s awesome team goal?

Vinicius Junior’s ridiculous piece of skill leaves two Shakhtar defenders ‘gasping for breath’

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Real Madrid winger Vinicius Junior has demonstrated he is one of the best in world football when it comes to the sweet art of dribbling.

The 22-year-old is absolutely electrifying with the ball at his feet, making it difficult for many defenders to stop him when he’s in full force in recent times.

The Brazil international has also added goals and assists to his game since Carlo Ancelotti took to the helm last season, but his biggest weapons are still his skill moves and dribbles.
