European Goals of the Week, 24 Dec: Avila head and shoulders above Sociedad defence

The Argentine pulled off a wondrous goal for Osasuna, plus a beauty from Josip Ilicic against Milan.

PSG's winning streak continued this weekend with a 4-1 victory against Amiens, with Kylian Mbappe once again among the goals. The first was the best goal of the game as he latched on to a pass through the middle before displaying outrageous speed to drive towards goal, giving him the opportunity to dink a cheeky finish over the oncoming goalkeeper.


After some lovely interplay from Antonio Candreva and Matias Vecino, the former picks out Romelu Lukaku inside the box. The Belgian then makes the defender go the wrong way before smashing an emphatic finish into the top left corner in off the crossbar, making it 4-0 to Inter.


In a fiery fixture between Chelsea and Tottenham on Sunday, Willian opened the scoring in the first half in cracking fashion. After a short-corner kick while Spurs weren't ready, the Willian receives the ball back to the left wing before cutting inside, shifting the ball on to his right foot past Serge Aurier, allowing him the space to whip a superb strike into the far right corner.


Milan were embarrassed 5-0 by Atalanta at the weekend, with Josip Ilicic the star of the show, scoring two goals. His first goal was impressive enough - a smashed finish into the corner - but his second was even better. After receiving a short pass from Alejandro Gomez, he finds space beyond the defender before whipping a magnificent strike high into the top left corner.


Osasuna forward Chimy Avila scored a superbly unconventional goal against Real Sociedad. After managing to hold off the attentions of a couple of defenders, he loops the ball over their heads before brilliantly heading a finish over the onrushing goalkeeper, who is left looking red-faced. The opportunistic, and rare, nature of the finish earns the Argentine the top spot.
