Antoine Griezmann’s been back in the goals for Barcelona recently and his latest effort has been named Champions League Goal of the Week.

The Frenchman opened the scoring against Ferencvaros on Wednesday with a brilliant backheel flick that went through the goalkeeper’s legs after just 14 minutes of the tie.

The goal beat off competition from Alexander Scholz, Mohamed Camara and İrfan Can Kahveci to be named the UCL’s top strike

Martin Braithwaite and Ousmane Dembele added to Griezmann’s strike to seal a 3-0 win for Ronald Koeman’s men and extend their perfect record in Europe.

Barcelona wrap up their Group G campaign on Tuesday with a visit from Juventus. Koeman’s men are three points ahead of the Serie A champions and won 2-0 in Turin in October.
