Stop what you’re doing and watch this goal Saul scored in the Champions League right now
Saul is one of the better young players in the world. At 21 years old, he has already been hailed as one of Atletico Madrid’s future stars, and Spain’s as well.
This goal will probably speed that hype train up a bit. And make you scream.
That’s one, two, three, four players he completely undressed. Like, embarrassingly so. And there was no help, passing or even movement to account for. It was just Saul against the defense. And Saul won.
And this isn’t just some match. This is a Champions League semifinal. And that’s Bayern Munich he’s going up against. On that stage, against arguably the best team in the world, Saul scored a goal worthy of a mixtape.
With the goal, Atletico Madrid went 1-0 up. Really, the goal should probably be worth two and Atleti should be 2-0 up, but the rules can be unjust at times. Kind of like the injustice of a 21-year-old being good enough to do that. It’s just cheating.
UPDATE: Atletico held off Bayern to win the first leg, 1-0.
