Federico Valverde showed again that his shooting ability is out of this world with a wonder-strike against Real Sociedad for Real Madrid

Real Madrid’s Federico Valverde was it again when Los Blancos came from behind to beat Real Sociedad in LaLiga. 

Valverde rescues Real Madrid with stunning goal

The Uruguayan midfielder equalised for Real Madrid after they had gone behind at the Bernabeu, scoring another of his long-range screamers to pull Los Blancos level. 

Valverde’s strike before players had settled down from the half-time break brought Real Madrid back into a difficult match, before summer signing Joselu Mato secured all three points for Los Blancos with a goal on the hour mark. 

The equaliser showed again how well Valverde can strike a ball, as the 25-year-old added another sensational goal to his growing catalogue of special strikes. 

Valverde sets new European milestone with wonder-strike

Valverde’s goal against Real Sociedad was his fifth from outside the box since the start of the 2022/23 season, more than any other player in Europe’s top 5 leagues, with the Real Madrid man scoring more goals from outside the 18-yard-box than inside it.

Although Valverde had not scored a goal in LaLiga since February 2023, the midfielder pulled out his special trick to rescue Los Blancos from a tricky situation. 

Thanks to Valverde and Joselu, Real Madrid were able to continue their perfect start to the new LaLiga season and went back to the top of the table with their fifth win from five games.
