Talk about stinging your opponent. 

Pablo Hernandez of Celta Vigo scored a spectacular goal on a scorpion kick against Atletico Madrid at Vicente Calderon on Saturday. 

The Chilean midfielder timed the audacious volley to perfection, blindly converting a looping cross with his backheel and his back to the net. 

Madrid keeper Miguel Angel Moya looked completely dumbfounded, stumbling sideways as he watched the ball bound into the net.
