Marcelo Vieira in his typically animated style indicated and appreciated the quality of a cross made by his teammate Dani Carvajal as Real Madrid thrashed Leganes 5-0 on Wednesday.
Los Blancos’ trusted right-back Carvajal curved an absolute beauty inside the Leganes box. The venomous cross was desperately searching for a header and Luka Jovic obliged to make the score 5-0.
With this goal, the Serbian forward finally ended his Real Madrid duck after 479 long minutes.
Marcelo, who himself is an excellent crosser, immediately realized the quality of the ball and conveyed his spontaneous appreciation (see below) in an emoji-styled gesture.
The 27-year old Spanish workhorse is having a good season as he has already amassed 4 assists in 7 league appearances.
Earlier in the game, Real Madrid did not find any difficulty in finding the back of the net as Rodrygo scored in the 7th minute.
Toni Kroos doubled the lead in the next 60 seconds. Both the assists were provided by Karim Benzema.
Next two goals came from penalties as Sergio Ramos and Benzema did not miss the target respectively.
With this win, the Galacticos rose to the second position in the league table and are only one point behind Barcelona. They will play their next match in Santiago Bernabéu against Real Betis on Sunday.
