GIF It: Victor Valdes’ howler (Barcelona v Real Madrid)
Sergio Busquets is often harshly credited with being the Barcelona player who’s least comfortable on the ball. Goalkeeper Victor Valdes chose last night’s El Clasico to prove that it’s actually him.
Valdes has seen Lionel Messi doing those neat turns and dummies so often that he thought it must be a piece of cake. But it wasn’t.
Real Madrid winger Angel Di Maria closed him down, pinched the ball and tapped the ball in to make the score 3-2 to Barca on the night and finely balanced ahead of the second leg at the Bernabeu.
