Juventus star Leonardo Bonucci’s sensational strike versus Sevilla has earned him a nomination for the UEFA Champions League Goal of the Week, presented by Nissan.
The Italy international’s fierce low drive helped secure all three points for the Old Lady in Seville, denying Jorge Sampaoli’s men a safe route through to the knockout stage.
But he faces stiff opposition on a week of some remarkable strikes, including two from the six-goal thriller in Istanbul as Besiktas roared back from three goals down to claim a point against Benfica.
The Turks looked down and out after Nelson Semedo’s stunning left-footed shot flew into the roof of the net to help the Portuguese into what appeared an unassailable lead.
But the hosts found some inspiration out of nowhere when Cenk Tosun’s flying volley gave them a lifeline and that strike will take some beating this week.
Legia’s Aleksandar Prijovic may be the man to beat it with this Ronaldinho-esque poked finish in his side’s 8-4 defeat to Dortmund in an unprecedented goalfest.
Club Brugge’s Jose Izquierdo rounds off the list of nominees with his penetrating run and ferocious near-post finish in his side’s 2-1 defeat to Leicester.
