1. THE RABONA - ALWAYS FUN

Because they happen so little, rabonas are always delightful to see, and this one from Malaysia is particularly special:

And Reading's John Swift produced this 97th-minute rabona assist for team-mate Lucas Boye, though his team would go on to lose on penalties.

2. RIP COUPE DE LA LIGUE

First launched in 1994 as France's third domestic competition, the LFP this week voted unanimously to end the tournament after the 2019-20 season in order to reduce the schedule on players. It means that only England from the top five leagues has a second cup competition - will it follow suit soon?

3. MILAN CLUBS LAY OUT OPTIONS FOR SAN SIRO REPLACEMENT

San Siro remains one of the most iconic world arenas but it is beginning to show its age and both AC Milan and Inter are beginning to prepare for its replacement.

The pair have released two separate designs that will be voted on; One called 'The Rings of Milano' and the other 'The Cathedral', each with its own clear iconography, as can be seen in the video below.

4. KASPER DOLBERG AND THE (SOLVED?) MYSTERY OF THE £62k WATCH

Dolberg completed an £18m switch from Ajax to Nice before the end of the transfer window, but this week his £62,000 watch went missing from the dressing room, the only item stolen from any of the players. Dolberg was so angry he initially refused to play in Nice's fixture against Dijon but in the end took to the field, and scored, in a 2-1.

Now it is being reported that Nice youth player Lamine Diaby-Fadiga is the culprit. The midfielder had made appearances at the age of 16 and has been out recently with a knee problem. It is believed he will be called to the club to explain himself and his days at Nice could be over.

4. ANOTHER EUROPEAN COMPETITION. YAY?

It's a competition that literally no-one asked for, but Uefa has confirmed the introduction of a third European competition for clubs, which will be named the Europa Conference League. The move is designed to 'get more clubs involved in European competition. Whether the clubs will enjoy the additional fixtures and headache remains to be seen.
