🏅 CUCHO MUCHO BUENO

In the most entertaining game of the Spanish Primera Division weekend, Mallorca drew 3-3 with Betis and the opening goal was scored in superb fashion by Cucho Hernandez.

After the ball fortuitously breaks to him in the left channel just inside the box, he proceeds to fire a magnificent first-time volley across goal into the bottom right corner in what was a quite sensational display of technique.

In an end-to-end contest which also saw Real Madrid loanee Takefusa Kubo net twice, Cucho, who has suffered with a serious hamstring injury this season, netted the pick of the bunch.

🥈 Lionel Messi scored four against Eibar, including this beauty which sees him nutmeg the defender before guiding a finish into the right corner.

🥉 Levante pulled off the shock of the weekend as they beat Real Madrid 1-0, with the winning goal being brilliantly volleyed into the top left corner by Jose Luis Morales.
