REAL MADRID star Federico Valverde scored an incredible long-range goal in his side’s win over Sevilla.
The Uruguayan midfielder was outside the box on the right-hand side when he received the ball from Marco Asensio, took one touch and fired into the top corner from distance.
Valverde’s right footed strike left Sevilla goalkeeper Bono rooted to the spot as he scored the last goal of the game making it 3-1 to the LaLiga holders.
The win extended Real Madrid’s lead at the top of the table to six points but second place Barcelona have a game in hand.
Carlo Ancelotti’s side are undefeated this season and it’s not the first time they have been helped by a Valverde screamer.
The 24-year-old is in fine form scoring seven goals this campaign and he has netted a number of powerful long shots.
He scored from outside the box in the El Clasico against rivals Barca and a thunderbolt with his weaker foot versus Elche.
The effort yesterday against Sevilla has been dubbed a goal of the season contender by fans but Valverde’s latest strike may only be competing with another by him.
He scored fantastically when Real Mallorca took the trip to the Santiago Bernabeu – Valverde dribbled from his own half before curling in from the just outside the penalty area.
Supporters could not believe that he is continuing to add to his catalogue of special goals – one fan in the stands had his hands on his head in shock.

Fans responded online: “Fede Valverde what a season heâs having.”
Another said: “Heâs got to be one of the best players in the world right now, fantastic.”
More commented: “Valverde shots giving me Roberto Carlos vibes.”
