A clever Pablo Aimar pass. December 21, 2011

Posted by Alex Tomchak Scott in Uncategorized.

This is a solid gold goal but the best part about it is Pablo Aimar’s return pass that eventually reaches Ruben Baraja. Aimar receives the ball from David Albelda running toward a well-positioned Dietmar Hamann. Then he caresses the ball lightly back in Albelda’s direction. Hamann sees the ball trickling slowly across the turf and can’t help but think he can reach it, so he charges out. But Aimar has seen Baraja darting across the top of the box and Hamann hasn’t.

Aimar’s pass has opened up space for him by luring his marker out of position, leaving him utterly open for Baraja’s return ball. Such a clever pass.
