Luka Modrić got the start and played the first 65 minutes in Real Madrid’s 6-2 La Liga win over Malaga Wednesday night. Modrić had a big day, assisting on Raul Albiol’s third minute corner kick header and adding one of his own in the 63rd minute, striking a low left-footed shot from 22 yards out off the right post and into goal, barely making it over the goal line.
Real Madrid are playing fantastic football at the moment, despite being one goal short of being in the Champions League Final with a domestic season which was always going to see them finish second, behind Barcelona. Luka Modrić is finally contributing the way he was planned to after his transfer in the summer, stringing together passes, shooting from the outside and running at opposing defenses.
