Even if one of his longtime midfield teammates has left, the Croatian is still scoring gorgeous curlers for Real Madrid.
Soon after, Modric switched roles, finding Vinicius Junior with a fantastic through ball to launch one of the most proficient counterattacks you’ll see all season.
Marchesin sped out to meet the Brazilian, who was still frozen, and after slipping the ball past the Celta goalkeeper, he placed it into the open goal.
Vinicius had excellent movement to get around the goalkeeper and score.
With his first goal of the year, Modric has now scored for Real Madrid in 11 straight La Liga campaigns. After Karim Benzema and Iago Aspas each converted an early penalty kick, the goal gave the Spanish champions their one-goal advantage back.
