On-Loan Manchester City Left-Back Angelino Scores Superb Goal For RB Leipzig
On-loan Manchester City left-back Angelino scored a superb goal to put RB Leipzig 1-0 up against İstanbul Başakşehir in the Champions League tonight.
The Spaniard bagged a first-half brace for last season's Champions League semi-finalists and the opener was a glorious bit of individual brilliance.
A lofted ball in behind saw Angelino twist and turn wonderfully before slamming home an emphatic finish. It all happened in one swift moment, with the touch and spin just utterly outrageous.
