GIRONA striker Taty Castellanos scored FOUR goals against Real Madrid – and then needed a pill to get to sleep.
The 24-year-old Argentine stunned Los Blancos with his incredible solo performance.
He hit the back of the net four times from just six shots and 15 touches against the 14-time European champions, who reduced the deficit through Vinicius Junior and Lucas Vazquez.
And Castellanos admitted he was absolutely buzzing and unsurprisingly struggled to nod off last night.
The on-loan New York City man said: “It was incredible, a dream night.
"I couldn't even sleep well and I stayed until four in the morning without being able to rest, I even had to take a pill to sleep.

"It was a huge joy for me as the other goals fell, I couldn't believe it. I shot [on target] five times and scored four goals. This was my night, I thought.
“Luck smiled on me against Real Madrid."
Castellanos came through in Argentine youth football before spells in Chile and Uruguay with City Football Group outfit Torque before moving to their sister-club in New York.
But his incredible quadruple against Carlo Ancelotti's men has burst him into the global spotlight.
Castellanos is determined to keep humble – but does have ambitions of linking up with his hero Lionel Messi on the international stage.
He added: "I have my feet on the ground. I will remain the same.
“We are talking about the best in the world, if Messi saw them, for me, it is crazy.
"I've never dealt with him but it's a dream I have.
"For me, he is a god of football and he has made me cry many times. I am passionate about his figure.
