The young star Ilaix Moriba already knows how to score against Real Madrid. He scored an absolute beauty of a goal when he was just 15 years old. As the second half was starting, Moriba shot as soon as he kicked off the half, scoring a rocket from the middle of the field.
This unbelievable goal was scored in a Clásico between the U19B teams of both clubs. Both teams were playing a preseason tournament back in August 2018, called The Cup. The game was played in the beautiful Catalan coast town of Sant Pol de Mar.
Not only was this game crucial because of being a Clásico but also because it decided which team went through the qualifiers and would play the final.
The Blaugranas ended up demolishing Los Blancos’ youngsters, as the game finished with a 5-0 on the scoreboard and qualified for the tournament final, which they ended up losing to city rivals Espanyol (0-1).
As expected, Ilaix played a magnificent game, in which he scored a hat-trick and showed off, proving to be one of La Masia’s prospects with a brighter future. The rocket from La Masia’s prospect was the fifth and last goal of that afternoon for the Culers.
It is yet to be determined if Ilaix Moriba, who has received multiple opportunities to play with the first team this season, gets the chance to debut in an El Clásico this next Saturday.
Barcelona will be traveling to Alfredo Di Stefano Stadium to keep their La Liga hopes alive. Let the battle begin, El Clásico will always be more than welcome.
