The Chilean forward struck a hat-trick in the Santiago Bernabéu showdown with Barcelona in the 1994/95 campaign.

In this week's Historic Goals feature, the star of the show is Iván Zamorano. The Chilean hitman joined Real Madrid from Sevilla in the 1992/93 campaign. He was a fine all-round forward, and as well as boasting tremendous ability in the air, he was capable of unleashing rasping strikes with both feet.


Here we look back on the masterclass he produced against Barcelona in the 1994/95 season, in a fixture which saw Real Madrid run out 5-0 winners,as Zamorano showcased all of his goalscoring prowess with a stunning first-half treble. He broke the deadlock when his close-range left-footed strike flew past the powerless Carlos Busquets, before claiming his second when he latched onto José Emilio Amavisca's lofted pass to coolly slot home. His third strike was largely down to Michael Laudrup, who dispossessed José María Bakero and laid the goal on a plate for the Chilean to tap home from point-blank range. Real Madrid went on to lift the league title in that campaign, in which Zamorano's 28-goal haul saw him take the Pichichi crown.

During his four-year spell at Real Madrid, he made 173 competitive appearances and notched 101 goals. In addition to the 1994/95 LaLiga title, he collected one Copa del Rey crown and a Spanish Super Cup.
