Der Klassiker had four of them, and Arsenal-Liverpool produced five – but none of those golazos were the best of the weekend.
It was another matchday of too many goals to choose from, even with Messi resting on the bench.
Here are this weekend’s top five goals from Bundesliga, Premier League, and Serie A.
5 – Leroy Sané – Bayern Munich
Match: Dortmund v. Bayern Munich (2-2)
Bayern’s second Der Klassiker goal was a beaut and looked to seal rival Dortmund’s fate at the time. But, in classic Klassiker fashion, Borussia made a last-ditch comeback effort, tying the unfriendly rivalry 2-2 in the 95th minute.
4 – Alex Iwobi – Everton
Match: Everton v. Manchester United (1-2)
Iwobi opened the match with a screamer in just the fifth minute, which isn’t always a guarantee of success. Case and point – Ronaldo and Antony. After coming off the bench for an injured Martial, Ronaldo scored his 700th league goal while Antony scored his third Premiership goal in a row.
3 – Boulaye Dia – Salernitana
Match: Salernitana v. Verona (2-1)
Senegalese striker Boulaye Dia ended the contest against Verona with this stoppage-time stunner. Perfectly drilled into the corner… Chef’s kiss. Salertina sits at 11th in the 20-team Serie A table with the win, knocking Verona down into the relegation zone at 18th.
2 – Moussa Diaby – Bayer Leverkusen
Match: Leverkusen v. Schalke (4-0)
French winger Moussa Diaby scored his first Bundesliga goal of the season with emphasis, doing it by his damn self. Could a better keeper have made the save? Sure. But that’s what so many great goals are made of. It’s also the first goal for Leverkusen with Spanish legend Xabi Alonso at the helm.
1 – Christian Pulisic – Chelsea
Match: Chelsea v. Wolverhampton (3-0)
What did you come to this website for if not to see the American at #1? Captain America got his first goal across all 2022-2023 competitions on Saturday, putting The Blues up 2-0 over the woeful Wolves. Puli had a fantastic day, as did Chelsea, who won 3-0 at home only days after beating AC Milan by the same score in the Champions League.
