European Goals of the Week, 11 Feb: Catch Emre if you Can

The former Juventus man made his return to German football in style, scoring a screamer for Dortmund against Leverkusen

The Derby della Madonnina was a fantastic game on Sunday as Inter came back from two goals down to defeat Milan 4-2.

The goal which completed the turnaround to make it 3-2 was scored by Stefan de Vrij, who got ahead of his marker and stooped low to send a magnificent diving header looping up over everyone, including the goalkeeper, into the top left corner. It was an impressive display of aerial strength, while the corner from Antonio Candreva wasn't bad either.


Lionel Messi wasn't among the goals in Barcelona's 3-2 win against Betis, but did earn a hat-trick of assists.

To equalise for Barca in the first half, the Argentine bided his time around 30 yards out before picking the perfect time to dink a gorgeous pass up and over the Betis defence for Frenkie de Jong, who wonderfully chested a touch down before firing a volley into the corner all in the one motion.


Getafe comfortably defeated Valencia 3-0, with 37-year-old Jorge Molina scoring two of the goals.

The second was majestic, as he initially bulldozes his way through the Los Che defence before sending not one, not two, but three defenders away with a beautiful roll of the ball in the other direction after faking to shoot. Thereafter, he tucks the ball away confidently after making enough space for the shot with the beautiful piece of skill.


Last week, Dimitri Payet made our Goals of the Week after his effort from an angle near enough to the goalline, despite some doubts over the positioning of the keeper.

There is definitely no doubting the quality of this one against Toulouse, though, as he picks up possession around 25 yards out before rifling an unstoppable right-footed strike high into the top left corner, with the goalkeeper left stranded.


Emre Can left Bayer Leverkusen for Liverpool in 2014 and if he was ever to return to the Bundesliga, it seemed somehow inevitable it would be in a match against his former club.

After signing for Dortmund on loan from Juventus in January, he made his debut for BVB away at Leverkusen where they, unfortunately for him, would lose 4-3.

However, the moment of the match belonged to him, as he scored a screamer. The ball breaks to him around 30 yards out, and after taking a touch to set himself, he sends an outrageous, curled effort into the top right corner despite the attentions of Kai Havertz, who very nearly gets there in time to make the tackle.
