Marco Asensio scores wonderful solo goal for Real Madrid against Sevilla


Zinedine Zidane travelled to Sevilla on Thursday night knowing his Real Madrid side already had the comfort of a 3-0 advantage from the first leg at the Bernabeu.

With that in mind, the French manager rotated his squad yet again, starting Alvaro Morata and youngster Mariano Diaz upfront, while the likes of Luka Modric, James Rodriguez and Cristiano Ronaldo weren’t even on the bench.

Sevilla, currently second in La Liga, took the lead after just ten minutes through a Danilo own goal, but Los Blancos levelled the score three minutes into the second half thanks to a wonderful solo goal from Marco Asensio.

Prior to the Copa del Rey last 16 second leg clash, the talented 20-year-old had scored six goals in 19 appearances for the reigning Champions League holders this season, and he registered his seventh of the campaign in some style.


Real goalkeeper Kiko Casilla punched a Sevilla corner away from his goal and, as you can see in the video further down the page, what Asensio did next was another indication of why he is held in such high regard in the Spanish capital.
