A Goals of the Week list would be difficult to form without having goals from Barcelona and Real Madrid (Higuaín’s goal coming close to winning top honors this week) and this list is no different. We also have goals from Serie A, the Bundesliga and the MLS. See the rest of the goals on the list after the jump. [...]

Another goal from that match made our list, as well as  goals from the Champions League, La Liga and the Brasileirão.
