European Goals of the Week, Nov 29: Dynamite from Dybala

Plus a potential assist of the season from Romelu Lukaku and Sven Bender's first ever European goal.

5. SINISTERRA THE SAVIOUR

With Alfredo Morelos turning the game on its head to put Rangers 2-1 up away at Feyenoord, the home side needed inspiration, and they got it from 20-year-old Luis Sinisterra. Initially, the Colombian darts in behind the opposition defence with pace before cutting inside on his right foot, allowing Filip Helander and Connor Goldson to get back into position slightly. However, thereafter he bamboozles the Rangers pair with some nifty footwork before sending a cheeky dink over the oncoming keeper.

4. BEND IT LIKE BENDER

Okay, so, we are taking some creative license with that headline as there wasn't much bend in Sven Bender's terrific finish against Lokomotiv Moscow, but it was still a hell of a goal. The ball breaks outside the box to Charles Aranguiz, who lifts a beautiful pass over the top of the Lokomotiv defence for Bender, who keeps his eye on the ball all the way to flash a left-footed volley past the goalkeeper, who has no time to respond due to the pace on the strike.

3. STOP IT, ALEJANDRO!

If this piece of skill was done by most, you would question whether or not it was meant. With Papu Gomez - you know it was. The Atalanta captain drifts in from the right channel and leaves poor Luka Ivanueec for dead with a gloriously cheeky nutmeg before drilling an emphatic finish across the box into the bottom left corner.

2. LUKAKU AND LAUTARO IN TANDEM

Romelu Lukaku and Lautaro Martinez are forming one of the most devastating striking partnerships in Europe, and continued to impress as they scored all three goals between them as Inter defeated Slavia Prague. For Martinez's second, Lukaku finds himself wide on the right wing where he picks out a stunning cross into the box with the outside of his left foot, while the finish from the Argentine is just as good - a first time volley into the corner.

1. DYBALA SETS, AND NEARLY BREAKS, THE BAR

It is the sheer audacity of attempting this strike, from this angle, which is why Paulo Dybala clinches the honour for best goal of the week. From barely two yards inside the pitch near the line, he steps up to fire a ferocious, dipping free-kick in off the cross from the right-hand side. Just by reading the description, you could be forgiven for thinking the goalkeeper should have done better. Watch the clip, ad you'll see Jan Oblak, one of the best stoppers in the world, had no chance.
