Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez chips keeper for beautiful goal (GIF)


Barcelona and Real Madrid were playing one another in El Clasico on Saturday. Barcelona’s big summer acquisition from Brazil, Neymar, gave them the lead early with a beautiful goal from the corner of the goal box.

Late in the second half, Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez scores this beautiful goal to give his team a 2-0 lead over Madrid. He had some trouble getting around the final defender to get into the box. With the goalie cheating out, Sanchez decides to get creative and chips this goal in over the keeper. It is an incredible goal, and taken with the foot that he is least comfortable with.

Madrid would score a goal in the 90th minute of the game, that made this the game-winning goal. They didn’t know it at the time however, and they were sitting on a comfortable two goal lead.

The tree points from this game keeps Barcelona atop the La Liga table for another week at least.
