Tiki-taka is dead - Bayern Munich proved that this week. Ok, maybe that's not strictly true, but it's always nice to see a different style of football prevail once in a while.

And there are few things in football more enjoyable than a proper old-fashioned goalmouth scramble.

It's a far cry from Total Football, it's pure farce, but it's still fun. 22 players piling in, air shots, hacked clearances, panicked challenges - all confined to the six-yard box.

There's been a couple of classic scrambles this season - who can forget Coventry versus Tranmere last year - but this one gives it a real run for its money.

Danubio had a season to forgot last year, but they're ticking over nicely in the Uruguayan Clausara this term.

Their opponents last weekend were Cerro, and Danubio slipped to a surprise 3-1 defeat. But Danubio's goal was a real cracker - a proper ten-man goalmouth scramble.

Cerro threaten to clear it on more than one occasion, but credit where credit's due - Danubio keep it alive. And they get their reward when it's jammed into the roof of the net.
