Alexandre Lacazette's backheel goal one of the best in Champions League this season

It's a subtle touch, but a perfect one.

Alexandre Lacazette is a really good goal-scorer, and this is a really good goal.

On the first couple of angles, it's not clear if he actually did anything. The ball doesn't change directions that dramatically. Maybe it would have gone in without him? And then there's that last angle, where it's very clear that a) he knows what he's doing, and b) the ball wouldn't have gone in without him. Sick.
