8. Alex Sandro (Malmö 0-3 JUVENTUS)

It wasn't an easy goal by any means as the left back had to stoop very low to direct a header into the net.

7. Rodrygo (Inter 0-1 REAL MADRID)

Rodrygo came off the bench to score a late winner for Real Madrid against Inter and it was a good goal from a great teamplay.

6. Danjuma (VILLARREAL 2-2 Atalanta)

Danjuma scored a nice goal to give Villarreal the lead over Atalanta.

With scoreline at 1-1, Gerard Moreno sent a lovely flick to Danjuma in the box who drilled home home one time on the half volley.

5. Mohamed Salah (LIVERPOOL 3-2 Milan)

Mohamed Salah's goal for Liverpool against AC Milan was very similar to Danjuma's goal described above.

However, Divock Origi's flick for the assist was better that Moreno's.

4. Jack Grealish (MAN CITY 6-3 Leipzig)

Jack Grealish's goal against Manchester City was a very superb one.

The England international did will to receive the ball on the left, approached the box with the ball and the fired it beautiful into the far corner. What a way to score his first ever UCL goal.

2. Jordan Henderson (LIVERPOOL 3-2 Milan)

What a beautiful goal Jordan Henderson scored to give Liverpool the win over AC Milan.

The England international waited on the edge of the box during a Liverpool corner and the header out fell kindly to him. Just as the ball was bouncing, the midfielder unleashed a sweet strike into the bottom corner.

1. Adama Traore (SHERIFF 2-0 Shakhtar)

Adama Traore scored an absolutely brilliant goal as Sheriff produced a shock 2-0 win over Shakhtar.
