Historic Goals: Butragueño

See video

Butragueño opened the scoring in the trip to the Benito Villamarín in the 1990/91 season.
Taking centre stage in this week's instalment of Historic Goals is Emilio Butragueño. The forward was promoted to the first team after rising up through the youth-team ranks, before catching the eye for Castilla. He excelled on account of his tremendous quality and goalscoring ability and he gave his name to the famous generation of homegrown talents to emerge from the academy in the 80s, the Quinta del Buitre.

Betis and Real Madrid met on 20 April 1991 at the Benito Villamarín and with just a few minutes on the clock, Madrid found themselves ahead. A fine team move culminated in Butragueño firing home following a cut-back from the six-yard line to set Madrid on their way to a 3-1 triumph. Butragueño enjoyed an 11-season spell at Real Madrid, during which time he made 463 competitive appearances and scored 171 goals. He lifted 15 pieces of silverware with the club: two UEFA Cups, six LaLiga titles, two Copas del Rey, a League Cup and four Spanish Super Cups. He currently serves as Real Madrid's director of institutional relations.
