Thiago Alcantara Produced A Filthy No-Look Pre-Assist For Serge Gnabry's Goal
Thiago Alcantara produced the most delicious no-look pass in the build-up to Serge Gnabry's goal against Barcelona.
The Spanish midfielder was at his breathtaking best in the stunning 8-2 Champions League quarter final victory over his former employers, dropping a complete and utter masterclass in the middle of the park.
And if one passage of play summed up his performance - and supreme abilities on the whole - it was his part in Gnabry's strike to make it 3-1 in Lisbon.
Sitting deep in midfield, Thiago effortlessly played through a glorious pass straight into the path of Lorenzo Goretzka in between the lines without even looking.
The German picked out the run of Gnabry with a beautifully flicked pass and the former Arsenal man finished emphatically past compatriot Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.
There was so much to like about the goal but the pre-assist from Thiago was just utterly sublime and it had fans on social media salivating at the mouth.
