Real Madrid forward Vinicius Jr scored probably the goal of the night, as Real beat Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League.
With Diego Simeone's side at home, their local rivals Real were on the road, as they travelled to Ukraine to face Shakhtar, trying to get their group stage back on track after the surprise loss to Sheriff last time out.
The 13 times Champions League winners took the lead in the 37th minute, through Serhiy Kryvtsov own goal, but it was the second half where they really got going.
Vinicius bagged the second of the game in the 51st minute and, just five minutes later, lit the night up with a brilliant goal as he bamboozled five Shakhtar defenders before slotting home to make it 3-0.

Things went from bad to worse for Shakhtar, who themselves had suffered an embarrassing defeat to Sheriff on Matchday One, with the visitors soon making four.
Vinicius Jr went from scorer to provider, as he set up fellow Brazilian forward Rodrygo in the 64th minute, as Ancelotti's side really showed their dominance.
The night wasn't over just yet, as Karim Benzema made it 5-0 in injury time, further adding to the campaign to help him become this year's Ballon d'Or winner.
However on the night, it was all about Vinicius and his dancing feet!
