Asensio scores two wonder strikes and leads Real Madrid’s scoring charts

Zinedine Zidane handed Marco Asensio a start in Real Madrid’s Sunday night clash with Valencia and the 21-year-old paid his coach back with a goal 10 minutes into the encounter and with the second-half equaliser.

As he did in both legs of the Supercopa de Espana triumph against Barcelona, he was once again able to score from outside the box, taking his tally for the 2017/18 season to three.

He then curled in a free-kick in the 83rd minute to earn Los Blancos a point and to grab his fourth goal of the campaign.

That makes him the early leader in Los Blancos’ scoring charts, ahead of Casemiro – who, like Asensio, had scored twice before Sunday night’s action.
