Apart from scoring on his debut in various competitions, Asensio also got into the habit of scoring big goals in big games for the club right from the start. Most notably, he netted in Real's 4-1 win against Juventus in the 2017 UEFA Champions League final.
At 24, Asensio has most of his career ahead of him, but he's already collected an impressive haul of silverware and will be hoping to add to it at the Bernabeu. Encouragingly for Asensio and Real Madrid, the talented midfielder is back in light training after a serious cruciate ligament injury.
