Marco Asensio is well past the point of being on fire as he scored his second stunning strike in less than a week against Real Madrid's bitter rivals Barcelona.
The young Spaniard enjoyed a marvellous individual tournament for Spain's U21s at the Euros over the summer after a debut season at Madrid that ended with calls for him to be inserted into the starting lineup, so for him to continue to turn heads in the manner he has been doing in both legs of Real Madrid's Super Cup meeting with Barca suggests they have a real gem on their hands.
His goal last week was a bolt from the blue, but Marc Andre Ter Stegen was once again left baffled by one of Asensio's shots as he didn't even suggest making a save from a knuckleball that flew in under the crossbar.
An outrageous goal, Marco Asensio is very much the real deal.
The movement on that ball made it impossible to stop, and that's something he's established as a skill he can pull off with regularity. Generally, people who can score from anywhere at any moment do well for themselves in football.
Barca caught cold, and they will be increasingly sick that Marco Asensio was nabbed from Mallorca for less than €4m last summer.
