This weekend saw two goals scored as the result of bicycle kicks, though one was slightly more direct than the other. Both goals came from big-name players. Both were celebrated emphatically by the players’ respective teammates. So, whose was better? Luis Suarez’s brilliant strike for Barcelona against Levante, or Andre-Pierre Gignac’s … er … attempt for Marseille? You be the judge.
Here is the clinical finish from Suarez, which capped off a 5-0 result for Barcelona.
And here is Gignac’s deceptively sweet take, which helped Marseille stay within touching distance of Ligue 1 leaders Lyon.
Suarez probably deserves the victory in this case, though there is something beautifully sweet about how pleased Gignac seems with his effort.
