The best goals from this week’s Champions League


The results of this week’s Champions League fixtures made for fascinating reading. There was a night of synchronous thrashings, handed out with relish by Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Shakhtar Donetsk. There was a wholly expected (yet still agonisingly confusing) lukewarm draw for Manchester City, whose inability to perform in Europe continues. There was the inevitable snatched win from Arsenal, where Wenger’s team, resembling a collection of soldiers returning from the Somme, still managed to get the job done against inferior opposition. And finally, there was Liverpool’s grand European occasion, where they welcomed Real Madrid to Anfield. The Scousers’ night indeed ended in the inevitable defeat that had loomed over them during the days leading up to the match, with the Spaniards easing to a 3-0 away win without so much as breaking a sweat. The goal tally over the two nights was astounding, and within this bevy lies some net-bulgers worth revisiting. They’re the picks of the bunch, and are embedded below (plus a bonus A-League gem for those who scroll the longest).
