Extra Time: Higuain sets sights on NBA as Real Madrid face possible Copa del Rey exit

Real Madrid may be failing to hit their targets after their shock 2-1 loss to Celta Vigo on Wednesday leaves them with work to do in the Copa del Rey.

The Spanish giants’ La Liga form has also seen them fall 11 points behind Barcelona at the top of the table – not exactly swish.

However, Gonzalo Higuain’s accuracy seems pretty spot on.

The Argentina forward should perhaps try his hand at pro basketball after he managed to successfully score from nine out of ten free throws.

The striker’s impressive efforts were captured by team-mate Alvaro Arbeloa, with the pair clearly striking up a plan for the 25-year-old to branch out from football whilst he recovers from a hamstring injury.

Jose Mourinho will be hoping that his side can rebound to secure all three points in their next game as they look to bounce back from the cup loss and chase down Barca.

Furthermore, the Portuguese manager will also need Higuain to return soon and show the same kind of form on the football pitch, with strike-partner Karim Benzema suffering an ankle injury in the loss on Wednesday night.
