After going a goal behind against Atalanta, City stormed back to an impressive 5-1 victory at the Etihad and their third was the pick of the bunch. Kevin De Bruyne burst down the right wing before sending the defender out of the stadium with a lovely feigned cross. He instead passed inside to Phil Foden, who unselfishly prodded into the path of Raheem Sterling, who made no mistake with an emphatic finish into the roof of the net.

Like City, Bayern had to bounce back from going a goal behind, this time against Olympiacos. After two goals from Robert Lewandowski to turn things around, Corentin Tolisso made it 3-1 with a beautiful, curled effort into the top corner from just outside the box, leaving the goalkeeper with no chance. Some nice work by Philippe Coutinho in the build-up, too, for the assist.

Juventus were desperate for inspiration against Lokomotiv Moscow in Group D, having gone behind in the first half. With Cristiano Ronaldo misfiring, the impetus landed on Paulo Dybala, who didn't disappoint as he got them back into the match with this superb, whipped left-footed strike straight into the left corner from 20 yards which left the goalkeeper standing on the spot. The Argentine would also go on to score the winner with a scythed finish into the corner.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is steadily getting back to full fitness after a long-term injury and against Genk he made his first Champions League start for 18 months, scoring twice against the Belgian side. His second was a thing of beauty; Roberto Firmino danced around tackles in the area before stabbing a neat pass into the feet of the former Arsenal winger who, with his first touch, delivered a gorgeous finish in off the crossbar with the outside of his boot.

The match between RB Leipzig and Zenit on Wednesday was full of quality, with each of the goals scored a cracker. However, this strike from Marcel Sabitzer is good enough to top any list of any week. The Austrian hung back at the side of the box to receive a lofted cross from Lukas Klostermann. From there, he chested down and allowed the ball to drop, before screwing an absolutely glorious strike into the top corner. Wow.

Kylian Mbappe was sensational when he came on against Club Brugge on Tuesday, scoring a second-half hat-trick. His best was his third, too, as he ran through on goal after a quite brilliant assist from Angel Di Maria with the outside of his foot to coolly finish into the corner.
