Angel di Maria almost breaks Isco's ankles with blood-twisting skill

Angel di Maria hasn't enjoyed the best start to his career at Paris Saint-Germain since joining in the summer, but he certainly seemed to be enjoying himself tonight.

The Argentinian international left Manchester United to head to the Parc des Princes in a deal worth around £44 million during the summer window after a disappointing season in the Premier League.

Now in Ligue 1, Di Maria has scored three league goals in eight appearances, but it is in the Champions League that he seems to be showing his best stuff. The 27-year-old couldn't help his side beat rivals Real Madrid, who secured a 1-0 win thanks to Nacho's goal - but he did provide a moment to cheer by completely bamboozling Isco.

The former Real Madrid man picked up the ball in midfield before twisting and turning Isco inside out, eventually causing the Spaniard to slip over and allowing Di Maria to race on ahead unimpeded.

The good folks who populate the Twittersphere certainly took delight in ex-Manchester United winger's effort - although more than a few were asking why he couldn't do it in a red shirt.

Real Madrid's win means they have now won all four of their Champions League games and are yet to concede a goal in the process. PSG meanwhile are three points back in second place, while Shakhtar Donetsk and Malmo are tied in third and fourth on three points.
