Copa Libertadores and Copa Sudamericana started this week, giving us the healthy extra dose of soccer we all need. Tuesday night, there were 11 games across both competitions, with fabulous stories in each of them, like the fantastic 2-0 victory of Bolivian club Always Ready over Corinthians.
Agustín Urzi goal vs Santos
My favorite moment, though? The magnificent goal that allowed Banfield to beat Santos in Copa Sudamericana, a sweet volley from 21-year-old Agustín Urzi.
Banfield le gana 1-0 a Santos con este GOLAZO de Urzi. Volea premium por dificultad, precisión y belleza.pic.twitter.com/64ohingq4A— VarskySports (@VarskySports) April 5, 2022
It's hypnotic and satisfying. Urzi's goal is an artwork in several layers. The way he accommodates the body to hit the ball, the first-touch strike with his left foot, the distance, the angle and how beautifully the ball goes into the net.
Technically insuperable. And, of course, you can enjoy it from a few different angles.
UN "CANICHE" QUE LADRÓ Y ATACÓ EN EL SUR

Urzi's goal came at the end of the first half. Banfield then resisted Santos' attempts to draw the game and collected three points to claim first place in Group C, ahead of Unión La Calera (1), Universidad Católica (1) and Santos (0).
