Ivan Rakitic Scores Acrobatic, Half-Volley Screamer From 25 Yards vs Spurs

Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic has just scored an absolute belter against Spurs in the Champions League tonight, putting the Catalan giants two-nil up in the first 45 minutes.

Rakitic, who is now being labelled 'Rocketic' after the strike, finished a wonderful team move, which included a typically sublime Lionel Messi lofted ball.

Just look at this thunderbolt of a strike from the Croatian midfielder. BANG!

Philippe Coutinho opened the scoring in the second minute after Hugo Lloris made a rash decision by coming off his line as Barcelona have dominated throughout at Wembley.
