October 18, 2016 marked Asensio’s third debut, and this time it was in the Champions League. Real Madrid was facing Legia Warsaw in Madrid’s Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. Asensio continued to hit the ground running by showing the world his talent. He was able to hit the ball in the back of the net on his third debut with Real Madrid after receiving a pass from Real Madrid icon Cristiano Ronaldo.
After one week, Real Madrid manager Zidane placed Asensio in the starting lineup against La Cultural y Deportivo Leonesa, allowing Madrid’s youngster to make his debut in the Copa del Rey. As usual, Asensio did the thing he enjoys the most and scored the fourth goal in his fourth debut.
On August 14, 2017, Asensio made his debut in the Spanish Super Cup after entering El Classico’s FC Barcelona vs. Real Madrid CF match in the second half. Asensio didn’t miss the opportunity to make it five out of five, becoming the first player ever to score in his debut in five different tournaments.
