Our top 5 goals of the week, featuring Hatem Ben Arfa, Adriano, and Pablo Osvaldo (again.)

This week's selection of top goals features three of the best screamers you'll see, along with a classy chip and an instinctive acrobatic finish.

5. Pablo Osvaldo, Internazionale Vs. ROMA

A brilliant and quick-thinking chipped finish as Pablo Osvaldo gets in our Goals of the Week for the second time. With a special mention to Franceso Totti for the perfectly-weighted pass.

4. Diego Giaretta, Ponte Preta Vs. ATLETICO-GO

A great instinctive finish here after a corner produces a bit of team keepie-uppie.

3. Adriano, BARCELONA Vs. Valencia

A brilliant strike from the Blaugrana wide-man kept Barcelona's perfect record intact against a determined Valencia side.

2. Hatem Ben Arfa, NEWCASTLE Vs. Aston Villa

Hatem Ben Arfa does what he does best, taking matters into his own hands to smash a brilliant effort in against Aston Villa.

1. Andre-Pierre Gignac, MARSEILLE Vs. Stade Rennes

OK, so it relied on some pretty hilarious defending, but Gignac takes very little time to execute a finish that's both perfectly precise and powerful enough to take the roof off.
