Matchday 8 brought a glut of stunning goals in Europe's leading club competition but which was best?

Neymar’s sensational free-kick versus Paris Saint-Germain has earned him a nomination for the UEFA Champions League Goal of the Week, presented by Nissan.

The Barcelona forward’s stunning strike sparked a remarkable late onslaught that saw the Catalans hit three goals in the final seven minutes to run out 6-1 winners, becoming the first team in Champions League history to overturn a four-goal first-leg deficit.

But the Brazilian faces stiff opposition in a week of excellent goals, including compatriot Douglas Costa’s fierce low strike that helped Bayern Munich on the way to another 5-1 hammering of Arsenal. 

That game also saw Theo Walcott earn a nomination for the prize after his weaving run that saw him skip past four Bayern defenders before unleashing an unstoppable drive high into the roof of Manuel Neuer’s net.

Marc Albrighton is also among the contenders following his controlled left-footed finish from just inside the box in Leicester City’s 2-0 victory over Jorge Sampaoli’s Sevilla.
