Joao Teixeira may only have completed 15 passes in Vitoria's huge win this week, but most of them were meaningful.

He scored two goals, assisted another, and played a fantastic part in another in what was an outstanding performance.

For his first goal, he took advantage of a poor touch from an opponent to steal possession 25 yards out, steady himself, and lash a low strike across goal into the bottom corner. His second was even better, as he ran through on goal to confidently dance a dribble around the goalkeeper before slotting home.

The goal to make it six was neither scored nor assisted by the Portuguese, but his incredibly clever dummy before the ball reached Davidson da Luz took a couple of defenders out of the game in the box.

He would eventually record an assist, though, and it was a via another lovely piece of skill as he flicked a pass in behind the Famalicao defence for Marcus Edwards to score.
