Thiago Alcantara boosts Bayern with amazing goal

If you’re a team in the midst of an unprecedented 43-game unbeaten run in the Bundesliga, you’re going to need a little magic.

Bayern Munich got more than a little in Wednesday’s thriller against Stuttgart, specifically from one Thiago Alcantara.

Already a goal down in the 76th minute, Bayern sub Claudio Pizarro headed in a Thiago free kick to help keep the unbeaten streak alive.

But it was Thiago’s amazing solo effort that lifted Bayern to full points. With time dwindling down, the Spanish midfielder set his sights on a Rafinha cross and blasted home a jaw-dropping scissor-kick.

Words cannot do the acrobatic finish justice, especially considering it came with mere seconds remaining. Just watch the video and enjoy.


Claudio Pizarro scores crafty goal vs. Ecuador

Claudio Pizarro didn’t get much playing time this season for Bayern Munich, but when he did he usually scored, once even netting a hat-trick in the first half against Lille in the Champions League.

For the Peru national team, Pizarro has been indispensable for over a decade, and he proved so once again in Friday’s World Cup qualifier, scoring the only goal of the game in fantastic fashion.
