Angel Di Maria makes Carles Puyol do the splits

Arguably the image and GIF of the night from the Copa del Rey El Clasico semi-final second leg was Angel Di Maria skinning Carles Puyol for Real Madrid’s second goal.

A long hoofed clearance from Sami Khedira (did he mean it?) fell to the feet of Angel Di Maria who produced a sensational run to beat one of the all time great defenders.

And Di Maria didn’t just beat Puyol, he made the Barcelona captain do the splits. This could well be a treasured moment for Real Madrid fans for years to come.

The subsequent Di Maria shot was saved by Pinto who could only parry out to Cristiano Ronaldo to score his second goal of the game.

A picture of Carles Puyol doing the splits is above and a GIF of the incident is below.
