The 90-year-old was in high spirits after seeing her grandson score, and she proudly showed off a Real Madrid pin, gifted to her by the club. 

There was one warning from her though, as Asensio went to leave, as she pleaded with him to come and visit Holland again soon.

‘You can’t wait so long to come back next time,’ she said, ‘because I won’t be alive anymore!’ 

Asensio dedicated his goal during the game to his family, a strike that sealed a 2-1 first-leg win for Santiago Solari’s side. 

The second-leg takes place in Spain on March 5.
