After Scoring Winner Vs. Ajax, Marco Asensio Got A Classic Visit From Grandma
Last Wednesday, Real Madrid’s Marco Asensio scored one of the most important goals of his career, earning his side a vital 2-1 away win over Ajax in the Champions League Round of 16.
Despite impressing intermittently over the course of his three-year stay at Real, the 23-year-old has struggled for consistency this campaign — much like the rest of his teammates.
But the victory over Ajax was a massive moment for both club and individual as Asensio’s strike made a NINTH STRAIGHT APPEARANCE in the UCL quarterfinals look very attainable for Real.
Real Madrid always find a way...

If you’re wondering, Asensio’s grandmother is speaking Dutch. Marco was born in Palma on the Spanish Balearic Islands to a Dutch mother and Spanish father.
Two salient pieces of advice from above: (one) visit your grandmother at quicker intervals, because there’s the danger that she won’t be alive anymore, and (two) sleep well and make a lot of assists.
Unfortunately for Marco and grandma, the attacker was rewarded for his winner with a start against Girona on Sunday. That did not go well, and Marco was hooked in the 66th minute.
