The attacking output managed by Real Madrid star Fran Garcia during the club’s meeting with Real Sociedad on Sunday has since given rise to a head-turning statistic.
For those who may have missed it, Carlo Ancelotti’s men marked their return to action a short time ago.
Amid a flawless start to the La Liga campaign, Real welcomed the aforementioned Sociedad to Spain’s capital, eyeing a fifth win from five.
And, when all was said and done at the Santiago Bernabeu, keep alive their fine form is precisely what Los Blancos went on to manage.
This came as a hard-fought affair ultimately culminated in the evening’s hosts emerging on the right side of a 2-1 result.
After Ander Barrenetxea handed Sociedad a surprise lead inside five minutes, Real came roaring back on the other side of the interval, thanking goals by way of Federico Valverde and Joselu for an eventual 2-1 triumph:
As alluded to above, though, whilst it is match-winner Joselu who will now likely grab the majority of the headlines post-match, it was a Blancos teammate who secured for himself a special benchmark.
The player in question? Fran Garcia.
Left-back Garcia, for his part, enjoyed a superb outing on Sunday evening, laying on both of his side’s goals courtesy of a clever pull-back, and pinpoint cross.
And, as revealed by statisticians Opta, in the process, he became ‘the youngest Real Madrid defender to register two assists in the same LaLiga game since (club legend) Marcelo’.
