Aritz Aduriz hit a swerving header off a lovely pass from Mikel Rico to put Athletic up 1-0 on Real Madrid. Rico saw Aduriz start his curling run into the penalty area and placed a perfect ball that Aduriz snapped past the diving Iker Casillas. Not only was the header absolutely smoked—look at the net pop—but it had all kinds of movement; Casillas never stood a chance.

As always, you are encouraged to listen to Ray Hudson's call because he is the best.
