Ousmane Dembele Broke Dani Carvajal's Ankles Without Touching The Ball
Ousmane Dembele got two assists in Barcelona's 3-0 Copa Del Rey semi-final second leg humiliation of Real Madrid at the Bernabeu but his best contribution was doing Dani Carvajal dirty.
At one point during the game, the Frenchman was fed on the left flank and when one-on-one against the Spaniard, he broke his ankles without even needing to touch the ball.
His deft shimmies and fakes sent Carvajal for a hot dog and he was made to look an absolute mug.

Poor Dani but at least he can take some sort of comfort in the fact that his captain Sergio Ramos got destroyed by Nelson Semedo in the first leg a few weeks back.
His swift faint utterly destroyed Ramos, who went sliding all the way off the pitch in scenes reminiscent to Sol Campbell's infamous never-ending slide tackle at Wembley against Croatia.
Meanwhile, Andres Iniesta has heaped praise on Dembele, hailing him as a "genius" and tipping him to be a key player at Barca for years to come.
"He is a very special player who can decide a game on his own. Ousmane has so much witty playfulness, speed and determination," the Barcelona legend told Goal and DAZN.
"He helps Barca with his genius. He's also been scoring very regularly this season. It is a pity that his injury has thrown him back a little bit lately.
"In the coming years he can become a very, very important player for Barca."
