In the late stages of Leganes’ all-important relegation battle with Mallorca, Oscar Rodriguez rescued Leganes with a sensational free-kick from downtown.
The Real Madrid loanee stepped up and fired the ball into the back of the net with a free-kick from between from the area right in the middle of the halfway line and the opposition’s goal.
I’d say that this was at least 40 yards out, Rodriguez’s amazing effort flew right into the top corner at an unbelievable speed, the keeper had no chance of keeping this out.
The 21-year-old attacking midfielder kicked the corner flag with his emphatic celebration and rightfully so.
Take a look at the spectacular hit below:

This hit is absolutely phenomenal, we’re certain this will figure in La Liga’s Goal of the Month and Season entries.
Leganes have rescued a point thanks to this strike, they’re still bottom but they’re just three points from safety now. It was even more crucial as it prevented fellow relegation candidates Mallorca from escaping the bottom three.
