Watch: Asensio Makes Mockery Of Valencia Defence With Exquisite Finish

Marco Asensio is regarded by many as one of the hottest prospects in world football, and he has again proven why this is the case with another wonder goal for Real Madrid.

Facing Valencia in La Liga on Sunday night, the Spaniard came up with another moment of individual magic to give the champions the lead after just ten minutes.

Taking a loose ball into his path the 21-year-old displayed frightening speed before cutting inside and whipping a venomous curling shot into the bottom left corner past the onlooking Valencia defence and Neto stranded in goal.

Asensio has grabbed the headlines recently with his goals in the Spanish Super Cup ties with Barcelona as well as for his stunning showings with Spain at the European U-21 Championships this summer.

Goals like these are fast becoming the reason why the Spanish forward is regarded as one of the greatest players in the world.
