Against Barcelona, Alaba broke forward and scored a brilliant goal with his left foot with a strike that any seasoned attacker would’ve been proud of.

It was Alaba‘s third assist of the season. His first came on his debut away at Alaves, in a game where he played as a left-back, putting in a measured ball to Vinicius who headed accurately to make it 4-1.
