Leo Messi may have grabbed most of the headlines this past weekend, but Radamel Falcao was not too far behind.
Falcao continued to prove why he is currently one of the best strikers in the world, scoring an astounding five goals in Atletico Madrid’s 6-0 thrashing of Deportivo La Coruna. Falcao did not net the winner, but he scored five straight goals for second-place Atletico to up his league total this season to 16.
Making the Colombian international’s five-goal performance even more impressive was the manner in which the goals came, as Falcao did not score off of simple tap-ins. Rather, he scored in diverse ways, including on a diving header and a perfectly-hit volley.
