Nico Paz's first goal for Real Madrid was the game-winner against Napoli in the Champions League.

Paz received the ball from Antonio Rudiger and advanced past a player with amazing technique before shooting from outside the box. The Napoli custodian, Alex Meret, got a hand to the thunderous strike, but it wasn’t enough as the ball went into the net.
