Tuesday in the Champions League was absolutely crazy.
Forty goals were scored across eight matches, three of which ended up as total romps with Bayern Munich crushing Roma 7-1, Shaktar Donetsk thrashing BATE 7-0 and Chelsea mauling Maribor 6-0.
With an average of five goals per game there were many, many gems.
But which one was the best?
Below are the Top 5 goals of the night supported in all their glory with gifs.
5. Arjen Robben’s shimmy and strike
We’ve seen this before, Arjen Robben shaking his defender to get the ball on his magical left foot for a curling finish. The victim in this 9th minute strike? None other than Ashley Cole.
Edinson Cavani proves his quality in the 87th minute by perfectly taking down the service, keeping his balance, spinning 360 degrees between two defenders and finding the match-winner.
3. Mario Gotze’s one-two with Thomas Muller
Mario Gotze delivers an ankle-breaking step over that leaves his defender in the dust and Thomas Muller gives a slick back heel in return. Gotze’s one-touch finish is the right decision as this 23rd minute strike handed Bayern Munich a 2-0 lead.
2. Porto cuts up Bilbao with sensational team goal
This one may not catch your eye on first look but re-watch it a few times and you’ll soon bask in the brilliance. The one-two between Juan Quintero and Christian Tello is virtually indefensible and Hector Herrera’s 45th minute one-touch finish is classy. Barcelona-esque.
