Vote: Top 10 Goals of the Week (ft Oscar, Barton, Pjanic, Maxwell & Moutinho)
The best goal from last week’s Champions League action gets our top 10 underway, swiftly followed by a 130 km/h free-kick registered during the Copa Sudamericana in the past few days.
The Europa League then served up two pearlers.
Everyone’s favourite love him/hate him Joey Barton scored with a direct corner for OM, while everyone was left screaming ‘Marco van Basten’ after Taison laced in his beauty for Metalist.
Goal five supplies one of the best goals of the season in an attack in which the ball never hit the ground. Staying with goals from unfashionable places, number six brings a lower league golazo from the Croatian third tier.
The end of the list is packed with stars from some of Europe’s biggest clubs.
There was a brilliant free-kick from Germany, an even better free-kick from Italy, and exquisite chip from France and finally a thumping thunderbolt from Portugal.
