Jordi Alba Scores 'Goal Of The Season' Contender With Incredible Outside-Of-Boot Volley

Adama Traore tried to link up with fellow January new boy Ferran Torres, but his pass was intercepted. 

Dani Alves picked up the loose ball and took a couple of touches before picking out Alba on the other side. 

The Brazilian lofted a scrumptious ball to Alba who hit a first-time volley into the back of the net. 

The Spaniard caught the ball with the outside of his boot, showcasing his absurd technique. 

His volley was so good that Jan Oblak didn't even bother making an attempt. What a goal. 

Alba's remarkable goal cancelled out Yannick Carrasco​'s strike, with Gavi and Ronald Araujo making it 2-1 then 3-1 before the break. 

In the second half, Alves got himself on the score-sheet, then got himself sent off. Barca old boy Luis Suarez pulled one back.

Xavi's team move above Diego Simeone's side to fourth place following the 4-2 victory.
