Alexis Sanchez: Amazing Goal (Might) Win Barcelona La Liga [UPDATE]


Alexis Sanchez just might have won Barcelona the 2013-14 La Liga title with this incredible goal in the first half Saturday vs. Atlético Madrid. Granted, Atlético only needs a draw to take the title for itself. Either way it’s a first-rate finish from the Chilean and would be one of the better league-winners in terms of sheer quality in recent memory. Near post from that angle? With that much power? Crazy.

Ray Hudson called it, “A radioactive hit!” on beIN. Can’t argue with that assessment.

Update: Diego Godin leveled the game with a header after the restart, meaning Sanchez’s wonderstrike will not prove to be the game and or league-winner.
