The18’s top five Champions League goals of the week: UCL is back baby

After a two-month break the UEFA Champions League returned this week as the knockout stages kicked off. We at The18 are trying something new and we’re picking our favorites for the best Champions League goals of the week.

Of the four games played this week eight goals were scored. Let’s get into the list.

Top 5 best Champions League goals of the week

5. Kylian Mbappé attacks at the back post

Despite the big news that Kylian Mbappé will leave PSG this summer as a free agent, the Frenchman’s goal scoring was unfazed.

Mbappé snuck away from his marker and blasted PSG’s opener into the roof of Real Sociedad’s net.

4. Man City’s third vs. Copenhagen

Kevin De Bruyne was the star in Man City’s 3-1 victory vs. Copenhagen with a goal and two assists. He and Phil Foden combined beautifully for City’s third.

3. Bradley Barcola dices Real Sociedad

PSG defeated Real Sociedad 2-0 and 21-year-old Bradley Barcola torched his defender to double PSG’s lead. Not a bad way to score your first Champions League goal.

2. Magnus Mattsson strike

Copenhagen only managed one shot on target against Manchester City and boy was it pretty. Magnus Mattsson had only signed for the club 10 days prior to scoring this powerful equalizer vs. City.

1 Brahim Diaz dribble and strike

There was no doubt about who would end up at No. 1 on the list this week. There were questions raised about Real Madrid’s game vs. RB Leipzig with Jude Bellingham out injured, but his replacement Brahim Díaz reminded everyone about his talent.

Be sure to check out next week’s rankings as we keep our fingers crossed that at least five goals get scored.
