RAPHINHA scored his second goal in two games for Barcelona to seal a 1-0 El Clasico win over Real Madrid with an absolute stunner.
The £55million signing from Leeds showed Chelsea what they're missing after the Blues missed out on his signature.
Having opened his account in the 6-0 win over Inter Miami last week, Raphinha doubled his tally in some style.
The goal came just before the half an hour mark in Las Vegas, with the 25-year-old intercepting an Eder Militao pass.
Picking the ball up 25 yards out from goal, Raphinha unleashed an unstoppable effort into the top corner.
Champions League final hero Thibaut Courtois couldn't get anywhere near the ball as it arrowed past the Real Madrid keeper and into the top corner.

But it was Brazilian ace Raphinha who made the difference.
The winger has hit the ground running since sealing his dream switch to Barca.
As well as scoring last time out against Inter Miami, Raphinha also provided two assists in the rampant 6-0 win.
Barcelona boss Xavi is blessed with multiple attacking options following the arrivals of Lewandowski and Raphinha.
Memphis Depay, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Memphis Depay were all brought off the bench, while there is still Ferran Torres to come back into the fold when he recovers from injury.
Speaking after the game on his attacking options, Xavi said: "You have already seen Raphinha show that he is capable of making a difference, very dynamic, he can play on both wings.

"And Robert is a world star. A world star who comes with tremendous humility, who comes to help us and who has adapted very quickly.
"The truth is, I am very happy with these two incorporations that at the same time give a lot of competition to the people at the top and thus we will all have to work even harder."
