11 things we loved this weekend: Salah, Wanyama, Totti, Verratti & more
We’re now genuinely asking whether there has ever been a single weekend to feature so many brilliant goals.
But as well as the number of screamers, we enjoyed some bizarre play from Marco Verratti, Francesco Totti being typically cool and, yes, *that* pitch invader.
On a weekend of great goals, this was possibly the best. Sadly it went into Abdullah’s own goal.
If he wasn’t such a good midfielder, Verratti would make a decent goalkeeper.
Getting across to block a screamer travelling straight for the top corner with his own head is commendable commitment from the Borussia Dortmund defender. He was even left a little dazed by his efforts.
He really is the King of Rome.

Judging by the quality of goals scored in Serie B this weekend, it’s now our favourite league in the world. Also look at those away ends: lovely stuff.
An absolute classic of the ‘just f*cking leather it’ genre.

Oviedo triumphed 2-1 over Sporting Gijon in the Asturian derby, and the fans certainly made sure the players knew the importance of the game beforehand.

Leeds, Leeds are falling apart again. And it’s making our Rob quite sad. But even he couldn’t help but crack a smile at this Twitter thread. Absolutely brilliant work.

Honestly, the amount of brilliant goals this weekend was ridiculous.

We’ve all had a few too many at the football, but this lad took the biscuit.
