Thirty passes in 94 seconds led to the Brazilian's strike to open the scoring on Sunday at Camp Nou
Another day, another sweet goal. In the first El Clásico of the season, a 5-1 Barça rout over Real Madrid, midfielder Philippe Coutinho was the author of the game’s first goal, which bore the unmistakeable stamp of FC Barcelona’s emblematic style of play.
The strike came after a buildup of around one minute and a half, and some 30 passes between the Brazilian and his teammates. It was the only 9th minute, and it gave the Barça fans not only something to applaud, but also a taste of what was to come.
Thirty passes. Ninety-four seconds. Ten players. See it for yourself!
And if you liked those first two, you'll love this one too!
