Rennes maintained third spot in Ligue 1 after humbling Montpellier 5-0 at home, with Faitout Maouassa scoring a peach.

After going on a jaunt down the left wing, he cuts inside on to his right foot before picking his moment to launch a blistering right-footed strike straight into the top left corner from 25 yards, with the goalkeeper left helpless on his line.

The sheer ferocity of this strike, as well as its precision, is what makes this the best goal of the Ligue 1 weekend.
