The young star that scored the fastest brace at Champions League

In the three goals of striker Rodrygo arrived in the first six minutes of the match Real beat Galatasaray 6-0, on 6/11.

At the age of 18, Rodrygo went into the Champions League history with a brace after just six minutes and 14 seconds against Galatasaray. The two goals of the Brazilian player were from the finishes into the far corner. In the fourth minute, the Real star scored from the left foot. Two minutes later, Rodrygo headed the lead to 2-0 after a cross from compatriot Marcelo.

In Rodrygo‘s first Champions League home match, the player even got the chance to break the fastest hat-trick record in the tournament. But Rodrygo did not give his senior Sergio Ramos a penalty kick in the 14th minute. Ramos then increased the score to 3-0 with a “panenka” kick.

The record for the fastest double in Champions League history belongs to Rodrygo with six minutes and 14 seconds against Galatasaray, while the fastest hattrick belongs to Marco Simeone with 24 minutes in the Milan match against Rosenborg 4-1 in 1996.

Rodrygo finally completed a hat-trick with a goal in the second minute of injury-time after Karim Benzema’s assist. That goal set a 6-0 victory for Real. Zinedine Zidane’s teachers brightened the door to the eighth round with seven points after four matches. Real are five points behind PSG but better than third team Club Brugge.

Rodrygo was recruited by Real from Santos in the summer of 2018 for $ 50 million, but has only officially joined the Spanish Royal team from this season. In La Liga, the Brazilian player also set a scoring record. He was the fastest scorer in the tournament’s debut, when setting the score 2-0 in a match against Osasuna on 26/9. That goal was scored by Rodrygo only 93 seconds after coming on.

The match ended perfectly with Rodrygo in the second injury-time, the moment he finished a hat-trick from Benzema’s slick. With three goals and a passing pass, the 18-year-old star had a lifetime to die.

This victory helped Real put a hand on the ticket to the round of 1/8. They are now five points ahead of third-placed team A, Club Brugge, while the group stage only has two turns left.
