Real Madrid Vs. Lyon: Marcelo Scores Wonder Goal

Real Madrid's Brazilian attacking left back has scored a wonder goal, putting the ball into the back of the net after two fantastic exchanges with his teammates, followed by a brilliant individual effort. Lyon can still force extra time with just one goal, but Madrid's goal means that an outright win for Lyon would be absolutely shocking at this point. Madrid are now up 2-1 on aggregate, and based on the mostly one way play in this game, it would be surprising if they relinquished that lead.

The goal came in th 37th minute, and it seemed like Marcelo was determined to score when the move started. At around the halfway line, the Brazilian exchanged passes with Xabi Alonso before continuing forward, cutting into the middle. He found another teammate to help him along, and played another one-two combination, this time with Cristiano Ronaldo, before surging towards the penalty area. Marcelo then beat two defenders with some spectacular dribbling moves, setting up a left footed curler from just outside the penalty area. Hugo Lloris got a fingertip to it, but he never really had a chance. 

Real Madrid now have a deserved lead, and Marcelo has a goal he'll always remember.
