Real Madrid's Marcelo reacted on Instagram to Alphonso Davies' unreal performance against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League. Davies had a moment to remember after creating one of the best assists of the season.
Bayern Munich's left-back Alphonso Davies had an incredible performance against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final.
The 'Maple Marcelo' completely dominated his flank against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final, in turn creating chance after chance as well as pocketing Lionel Messi.
The 19-year-old also created arguably the assist of the tournament after skinning three Barcelona players to set up an easy finish for Joshua Kimmich.
"He's just turned Nelson Semedo inside out! An experienced right-back... Whoops!"- Football on BT Sport #Club2020 (@btsportfootball) August 14, 2020
Wow, Alphonso Davies is just so difficult to stop :fire:

Real Madrid's Marcelo heaped praise on to the Canadian full-back on Instagram saying that Davies brings joy to his eyes.
"You bring joy to my eyes when i see u play kid."
Davies responded appreciating the compliments from Marcelo.
Bayern ended up winning 8-2 (as the whole world knows) with goals from Thomas Muller, Ivan Perisic, Kimmich, Serge Gnabry, Robert Lewandowski, and Philippe Coutinho to completely humiliate and dismantle the Catalan side. An own-goal from David Alaba and a swift finish from Luis Suarez were the only consolation goals for Barcelona.
Barcelona manager Quique Setien was sacked only minutes after full-time after Barcelona suffered their worst defeat in the club's history.
