European Goals of the Week, 4 Feb: Potential assist of the season from Messi

The Argentine picked out Ansu Fati with a glorious pass, while Thiago dribbled his way to a goal for Bayern

Ciro Immobile has been accused of being nothing more than a penalty box striker who scores too many penalties, but as shown by this goal against SPAL, he harbours superb ingenuity too.

After running through on goal to round Etrit Berisha, the Italian finds himself in a face off against the goalkeeper. He eventually wins the battle of wits, though, twisting and turning enough times to gain himself a yard to loft a quite brilliant finish over the despairing defender on the line.


Thiago has certainly found his shooting boots recently, and added to his tally with a wondrous goal against Mainz for Bayern this past weekend.

After collecting possession outside the box, he takes on three opposition defenders with some magical stepovers and a drop of the shoulder before emphatically smashing a strike into the right corner.


Bobby Reid may be a new signing for Fulham, but he is quickly becoming a favourite with the Craven Cottage faithful with his exciting play from the left and into the centre.

It was via this channel which he scored against Huddersfield. He plucks the ball out of the air with a lovely touch, ghosting past the defender before making his way into the penalty area, with another defender subsequently sent the wrong way. He ends the run with a beautiful finish into the far corner.


Napoli won 4-2 away at Sampdoria but the best goal of the game was a consolation scored by Fabio Quagliarella.

Albin Ekdal floats a cross to the edge of the box for the veteran centre-forward, who catches a stunning volley into the bottom left corner. He really doesn't score bad goals.


Ansu Fati may have scored both goals in Barcelona's win over Levante, with him running through on goal and lashing a lovely strike home for the first.

But, for that first goal, Lionel Messi pulled off one of the best assists you will see this season. While moving back towards his own half inside the centre circle, he looks up and threads a low ball through the Levante ranks which takes no less than eight players right out of the game, allowing the youngster to score.
