Real Madrid Have Copied One Of Their 'FIFA Kick-Off Glitch' Routines From Championship Side Bournemouth

Real Madrid busted out a 'FIFA kick-off glitch' routine against Paris Saint-Germain and fans have figured out the source - Championship outfit Bournemouth.

Scott Parker's side wowed fans back in December after scoring straight from kick-off against Fulham.

The technique went viral and 'Los Blancos' appeared to copy it move for move in their sensational comeback last week.

For those unaware of what Bournemouth did, they kicked off and played quick one twos inside the centre circle.

While they were doing that, Dominic Solanke was making a run out wide and it allowed Philip Billing to chip a ball over the whole defence.

Solanke then scored within seconds of kicking off the second half and left Fulham stunned.

Madrid attempted it themselves immediately after starting against the French giants but didn't manage to pull it off, as Gianluigi Donnarumma ran out to smother the ball.

Fans have reacted to the footage and they're convinced Bournemouth are shaping the future of football.

Another said: "Bournemouth shaping the future of football, you love to see it."

A third posted: "You mean they're both using the KSI kickoff glitch."

While another put: "Never imagined Bournemouth and Real Madrid in the same sentence."

Madrid completed a sensational comeback against PSG thanks to a Karim Benzema hat-trick.

Marquinhos' botched clearance allowed Benzema to strike with the outside of his boot to seal victory.

Benzema continued his form into La Liga, scoring twice on Monday in Real's 3-0 demolishment of Real Mallorca.

He hobbled off late in the game with a calf problem, but manager Carlo Ancelotti isn't concerned.

"We have to evaluate him in the next few days – things don't seem very serious," Ancelotti explained.

"Karim did not feel good after a jump – we have to wait until Wednesday [to learn more]."

Real are 10 points clear of Sevilla at the top of the table, but face Barcelona in El Clasico this weekend.

Xavi has rejuvenated the Catalan giants in recent weeks after a number of smart transfers in January.
