European Goals of the Week, 7 Feb: Reyna reigns for Dortmund

The young superstar lit up the DFB-Pokal with a stunning strike against Werder Bremen

Real Sociedad put in a superb away performance to knock Real Madrid out of the Copa del Rey, with Alexander Isak scoring two goals. Both goals were excellent, too, but his first just shades it. After holding his run in the centre of the box, he allows a chipped cross to come for him before shaping his body into an awkward position to direct a quite brilliant left-footed volley into the top right corner.


Headed goals don't tend to get enough love in FootballCritic's Goals of the Week, but this one from Robert Lewandowski is just so dominating and a perfect summary of how good the Pole is in the air. It is a simple cross into the box and a header into the corner, but look how he bamboozles the defender with his zig-zag movement and also the amount of time he hangs in the air.


Marseille maintained their second spot in Ligue 1 after beating Saint-Etienne 2-0, with one of the goals scored by Dimitri Payet. Now, the goalkeeper is poor for this one admittedly, but it is still brilliant from the Frenchman as he drives to the line, cuts back, then cuts back again, before somehow finding the back of the net from the tightest of angles.


Werder Bremen knocked Dortmund out of the German Cup this week, with Leonardo Bittencourt scoring against his former club in the 3-2 win. It was his goal which gave the hosts a 2-0 lead in the first half, and in sensational fashion as he lingers outside the box, takes a touch to set himself, and lets the ball bounce before arrowing a magnificent half-volley into the top left corner.


Sadly for Giovanni Reyna, the goal which made everyone take notice of him came in Dortmund's loss against Bremen, but that doesn't make it any less special. Picking up possession outside the opposition box, he cleverly jinks in between three player before, with very little backlift, guiding an absolute beauty of a finish curling into the top right corner.
