Having played for multiple clubs throughout his career, Angel di Maria is loved everywhere in the World, except at Manchester United maybe. The lanky Argentine has the gifts of skill, technique and composure at the same time and that is exactly what makes him one of the best in his trade. Usually shooting or passing with left foot, the former Real Madrid and Manchester United man now plys his trade for French outfit Paris St. Germain and has another couple of years at the top level. We take a look at the Top 5 goals scored by Angel di Maria.
5. PSG vs Marseille, 2018-19 Ligue 1
The La Clasique is an occasion to remember in French football as fierce rivals Paris St. Germain and Marseille square off in what often turns out to be the match of the season. The 2018-19 season was no different as PSG brushed aside the visitors with a 3-1 victory with Angel di Maria scoring twice for Thomas Tuchel’s side.
The Argentine made and scored the first goal himself, showing great pace and finishing while the second one was a beautiful free-kick taken from 35 yards out that brushed the post and found its way in. Big match player, for sure!
4. FC Barcelona v Real Madrid, 2013-14 Copa Del Rey Final
Scorers of the El Classico are legends by their own right. The lanky Argentine had his moment in the spotlight as he scored for Real against their arch-rivals in a Copa del Rey Final, the Spanish domestic Cup competition.
The goal came at the end of a wonderfully constructed counter-attack that had Benzema playing out an unbelievable pass and although di Maria had Ronaldo to pass too, he decided to go for goal himself to round off this wonderful Madrid move.
3. Montpellier v PSG, 2018-19 Ligue 1
Away at Montpellier, Angel di Maria decided to make it his day as he took responsibility for a free kick 30 yards out, tricked the keeper and used the wall to hit the blindspot.
