scored yet another goal from outside the area in the thrashing of Deportivo to make it ten this season for Real Madrid. It was the second for the Croatian, who is making this something of a speciality
having already netted a long-range strike against APOEL in Cyprus. It’s Asensio
who has really stood out in this respect though, with four goals so far.
The Mallorca-born star opened his account in the Spanish Super Cup with his wonder-goal against Barcelona at the Bernabéu. He then scored a double from outside the area against Valencia, before netting his fourth in the home clash against UD Las Palmas. Aside from Modric
, another three madridistas have already scored from outside the box this campaign: Cristiano Ronaldo
(2), Lucas Vázquez
In total, Zidane's
men have spread their long-distance strikes across four competitions: LaLiga (5), The Champions League (3), The Spanish Super Cup (1) and The Club World Cup
(1). In the latter, the goal came from the boots of Cristiano Ronaldo
with a direct free-kick which was enough to beat Gremio in the final.
