Paderborn’s Marvin Ducksch hits incredible volley goal

Newly-promoted Paderborn continue to stir up the Bundesliga with good results and even better goals in their debut season.

Last month, Moritz Stoppelkamp broke a league record with a goal from 80 yards (!) out, and, on Sunday, Marvin Ducksch put away this tidy finish to help Paderborn to a 3-1 win over Eintracht Frankfurt:


Tipped by most experts to finish in last place before the season, Paderborn have instead lost just two of their first eight games — and those defeats were to first-placed Bayern and second-placed Borussia Mönchengladbach — to put them securely in the top half of the table. With a few more golazos, the surprise team of the season might even stay there.

Yoann Court scores belting volley for Troyes

Out of all the great goals we saw this weekend - and there were many - Yoann Court’s for Ligue 2 side Troyes may have been the most impressive. This volley is the sort of goal you dream and tell your grandchildren about. The perfect hit.

It was the first goal of the season for the former France youth international, and he made sure it was a memorable one!

Torino’s Ciro Immobile scores volley of the year

Who isn’t a fan of volleys?

Oh, you aren’t? Well, then this video is not for you:

Torino striker Ciro Immobile scored an improbable goal against Roma on Tuesday that will have you questioning gravity and physics and all that nonsense. It also proves not to judge a player by his last name.

Immobile one-timed a high-arching pass from midfield and smashed it perfectly past Roma goalkeeper Morgan De Sanctis for the golazo, which brought back memories Antonio Di Natale’s masterpiece a year ago:

Since that epicness, all volleys have been judged against “the Di Natale.” But after Tuesday, we may have to make “the Immobile” the new high-water mark, even if it doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.
