Villarreal Scores Incredible 3-Touch Goal With Ball Never Touching The Ground

Villarreal goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo, midfielder Santi Cazorla and forward Gerard Moreno combined to score a goal of rare beauty on Sunday with the ball not touching the ground during the trio’s flowing move.
A Valencia clearance fluttered into Villarreal’s half, but Asenjo lumped it straight back at Los Che on the half-volley. That thump from the heavens was deftly met by a cushioned pass from Cazorla 20 yards out.
Cazorla’s volleyed delivery was measured and weighted to perfection, finding Gerard just inside the area. Gerard’s left-footed volley then flew by Jasper Cillessen for a simple but brutally effective three-touch counterattack by Villarreal.

The game’s opening goal is also worth a watch. On this one, Gerard was provider when picking out Paco Alcácer for the precise volley.
