The midfield duo of Isco and Marco Asensio are wreaking havoc on the international stage as well as for Real Madrid.
Asensio, who has put world football on notice in recent weeks, actually led the line for Spain in their World Cup qualifier against Italy and came away empty handed, but his teammate ably filled in on the scoresheet.
Isco got his chance early on to make an impression on the game with an inviting free kick, and the 25-year-old duly slotted it away in great fashion.

Isco helped put the crucial tie beyond Italy on the stroke of half time.
In receiving a pass from Andres Iniesta, he immediately found space and shot across goal, with the legendary Gianluigi Buffon left helpless yet again.
Chelsea’s Alvaro Morata rounded off the win late on, which puts Spain top of Group G and poised to make the World Cup tournament next week.
Isco and Asensio scored 21 goals between them for Real Madrid last season, and on this early evidence, the Galacticos won’t relinquish their grip on European football any time soon.
