Brest may have been knocked out of the Coupe de la Ligue after a 3-1 defeat by Lyon, but the best goal of the game came via their consolation. While 2-0 down, the visitors embark on a lightning-quick counterattack which sees Kevin Mayi burst down the left flank at pace, while patiently waiting for the overlapping run of Samuel Grandsir, who takes a touch into the box before picking out a stabbed, curled finish into the far corner from a very tight angle. The unconventional way he strikes this one is what makes it good.


In the first leg of the semi-final of the League Cup at Old Trafford, Man City humbled Man Utd with a 3-1 away victory which could have and should have been a more comprehensive win. Pep Guardiola's side completely dominated proceedings and were helped by this cracker from Bernardo Silva which was scored just 17 minutes in. After collecting the ball on the right wing, the Portuguese drifts inside unopposed before whipping a stuuning left-footed finish high into the top left corner.


Back to France, now, and Lille progressed to the next round of the French League Cup with a 2-0 defeat of Amiens. The opening goal was scored by Luiz Araujo in sensational fashion, as he received a short corner-kick from Domagoj Bradaric before finding himself in plenty of space on the right channel. With time to pick his spot, he curls a beauty of a strike high across the box into the top left corner, with the goalkeeper left stranded.
