| Last updated
We need to talk about Memphis Depay's ice-cold penalty for Barcelona against Elche. It was absolutely unstoppable.
Barca came from a goal down to beat Elche 2-1 thanks to second-half strikes from Ferran Torres and Depay, who made no mistake from 12-yards.

VAR awarded Xavi's team a penalty late in their La Liga clash on Sunday, with Depay nonchalantly picking out the top corner with a thunderous strike.
The Dutchman only took a few steps before walloping the ball into top bins territory.
