Grosicki’s volley, Williams’ Bale-like run lead European goals of the week

DAMIEN MEYER

Top three goals of the week

Kamil Grosicki (Rennes): A wonderful first-time volley from the Polish winger which curled into the far corner. Expected to be a January transfer target for Premier League clubs, this could increase his value.

Inaki Williams (Athletic Bilbao): A run from the halfway line and smart finish conjured up memories of Gareth Bale in the Copa del Rey final as Williams helped Athletic to another home win.

Dominik Furman (Wilsa Plock): A run and powerful shot into the top corner from the Polish midfielder helped his side to a draw against former club Legia Warsaw. 

Top three players of the week

Greg Fleming (Ayr United): The goalkeeper saved two penalties in as many minutes, confirming his status as one of the best 12-yard stoppers in the business. 

Ryan Fraser (Bournemouth): The Scottish substitute, described as a player of potential by coach Eddie Howe, came off the bench with his side trailing 2-0 to Liverpool. Within minutes, the 22-year-old had won a penalty, and then he scored, as his side earned a dramatic 4-3 win. Fraser is one to watch.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Dortmund): Two more goals for the striker, who is top of the scoring charts in Germany, three clear of Anthony Modeste and six ahead of Robert Lewandowski. He now has eight in his last five games. That's some response to being disciplined by manager Thomas Tuchel.
