When you’re good, you’re good.
Even when Luka Modrić completely whiffs on an open shot on goal; he still receives the game winning assist. There was only one goal Wednesday night in Real Madrid’s 1-0 victory over Athletic Bilbao and it came off a completely whiffed shot from Luka Modrić’s leg. Modrić had a pretty good look on goal but the ball completely shanked off his leg to find an open Karim Benzema in front of the net for the goal.
Call it an accidental assist, but at the end of the day, Real Madrid get the win and increase their La Liga lead to seven points.
