Raphinha’s joyous start to life with Barcelona continued on Saturday night in a clash against bitter rivals Real Madrid.

 

Under pressure, Éder Militão committed a cardinal sin by playing a loose ball square across the face of his own box, surrendering possession to the Brazilian winger. There was still plenty to do though as the 25-year-old pushes the ball out of his feet and unleashes an unstoppable shot into Thibaut Courtois’ top corner. A goal that proved to be the difference in the game.

 

 

Barca will be hoping that the winger continues in the same vein of form next season as they aim to wrestle the title from Madrid.
