Atlético Madrid Gets An Early Champions League Lead With This Insane Goal

It took just 11 minutes for Atlético Madrid to jump out to a shock lead against Bayern Munich in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League semifinal match.

Atlético midfielder Saúl Ñíguez broke down the Bayern defense, found his way into the box and slotted past goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to score this insane goal.

It doesn't get much better than this as far as solo goals are concerned, and the fact Ñíguez scored in Atlético's most crucial match of the season to date proves the quality of the 21-year-old Spanish international.

There's still plenty of time to play over the course of this leg and the second one in Germany, but Atlético is looking very capable against the German giants.
