Watch Diego Godín Get Spectacularly Kicked In The Face By Qarabag’s Pedro Henrique

Kicks are spectacular. Especially in martial arts. Also in movies. I mean, just think about Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee. However, every now and then soccer players can be seen kicking their colleagues in pretty spectacular ways. This week Champions League highlight is no doubt Diego Godin kicked in the face by Qarabag's Pedro Henrique.

Henrique and Godín were both in the air, having jumped to reach the ball. Somehow, Henrique managed to get his foot all the way up to Godín’s face. Now, this certainly wasn’t one for fair play, but no doubt it was a memorable image.

Atletico Madrid Become The First Team To Not Lose To Barcelona In La Liga

Going into today's Atletico Madrid-Barcelona clash, Barcelona had won every game in La Liga and no opposition player had scored in Atleti's new stadium, the Wanda Metropolitano. Neither of those things are true anymore.

Atletico Madrid And Chelsea's Inevitable Draw Interrupted By Michy Batshuayi

Atletico Madrid and Chelsea were supposed to draw. It was written in the stars. This match was predestined to end 0-0 or 1-1, with no other acceptable scores.

And it really should have ended in a draw. The match was at 1-1 with neither team looking very interesting going forward, but then Chelsea backup striker Michy Batshuayi, he who scored the goal that sealed the Premier League for Chelsea last season, spat in the face of God and preconceived #narrative and scored the winner in the 94th minute with the last kick of the game.
