Atletico Madrid's midfielder Saul NIguez (17) scores from a bicycle kick during their 4-0 win over Real Madrid

If the 4-0 loss against their local rivals wasn’t hard enough on the Real Madrid supporters, they had to gulp up a fact that one of the four goals came in the form of a majestic bicycle from one of their former youth products.

20-year-old Saul Niguez‘s goal in the 18th minute was a highlight of the magnitude of Atletico Madrid’s dominating win over Real Madrid during their thumping win at the Vicente Calderón Stadium.

After coming on as a substitute for injured Koke in the first 10 minutes, Saul was successful in slotting the ball past Real Madrid keeper Iker Casillas with a brilliant bicycle kick following a pin-point pass inside the box from Guilherme Siqueira

Real Madrid would then eventually go on to conceded further two goals, never really finding a stable ground in the match.
