Cristiano Ronaldo didn't get on the score sheet, but he did nutmeg the hell out of a defender with an incredibly rude elastico (which is just as good as a goal when you really think about it). He was apparently in a wildly disrespectful mood that day, and he got the trolling started before the...

Watch Cristiano Ronaldo embarrass a defender with an elastico nutmeg

The best soccer skill off all might just be the nutmeg. There are few things more satisfying than a ball getting poked through a defender's legs and then watching him scramble as his mark blows past him. There are two ways to make a nutmeg better, though. First, make it an elastico. Second, have Cristiano Ronaldo do it. Case in point: Oof. The slow-motion replay of it is just brutal...

Gareth Bale scored in his return and a scary good Real Madrid now look better than ever

Gareth Bale is back. He's not only back on the field after a four-month injury absence, but he's back to scoring ridiculously fun goals at breakneck pace – and that should make everyone very afraid of a Real Madrid squad that was doing just fine without him. Injuries haven't held the Spanish giants back to this point, and now they just got even better. In his first minutes since...
