Champions League Technical Report Reveals 10 Best Goals Of 2020

Who can forget Alphonso Davies' run vs. Barcelona or Lionel Messi's effort vs. Napoli?

The 2019-20 UEFA Champions League technical report was released online Monday, and the 108-page report contains a wealth of information including emerging trends, tactical innovations and a review of the competition that was ultimately won by a sensational Bayern Munich squad.

One aspect of the review was determining — as judged by UEFA’s team of technical observers — the 10 best goals of the 2020 Champions League. In total, the tournament saw 386 goals (3.24 per match) with Bayern’s Robert Lewandowski finishing as the top scorer with 15 goals followed by Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland with 10. 

With many clubs implementing a high-risk, high-reward style of building from the back in the face of high pressure, it comes as no surprise that the goals-per-game ratio of 3.24 was actually a Champions League record. 

Here are the 10 best goals of the 2019-20 Champions League.
