European Goals of the Week, Nov 26: Mahrez individuality beats Chelsea

A great team goal from the Championship and A flurry of free-kicks

4:24pm on Tuesday 26th November 2019
Team FC


We've already spoken on FC about how Dejan Kulusevski is a serious player to watch and he curled home a lovely opening goal in Parma's 2-2 draw at Bologna. The on-loan Atalanta man latched onto a loose ball at the edge of the box and very clearly placed his curling effort into the far corner, giving the keeper absolutely no chance.

4. Rochina ROCKET

There wasn't much happening ahead of Rochina as the clock ticked down in the Levante versus Mallorca match, with the game tied at 1-1, so the midfielder just knocked the ball forward and lashed an unstoppable long-range effort, from fully 35 yards, into the bottom corner of the net. That's it. Straightforward.

There were some excellent efforts from set plays this weekend, such as Joao Moutinho's winner for Wolves at Bournemouth, and Emil Forsberg's curler for RB Leipzig at home to Koln. But far and away the best effort for Manolo Gabbiadini's stupendous effort for Sampdoria. He is a fair distance out meaning he requires dip and power and achieves both expertly, his effort whistling beautifully into the top corner.


Middlesbrough have seriously struggled in the Championship this season, and even contrived to throw away a two-goal lead against Hull on Sunday, but not before netting a glorious sweeping team goal. Marvin Johnson starts the move in his own half, Britt Assombalonga dummies it, Ashley Fletcher plays it back into Assombalonga's path and he runs on to the return pass to walk around the goalkeeper and slot into the net. Five touches of the ball to move sixty yards to score. Brilliant.

The brilliant Algerian settled one of the most open contests of the weekend as Man City defeated Chelsea 2-1, and Mahrez's goal was the absolute highlight. His direct running from the right saw him cut inside two defenders and slide his finish through a third defender's legs and into the far corner. A really lovely effort.
