Is this the classiest free kick of all time?

Published Add your comment

Benfica winger Nicolas Gaitain lit up the Europa League last night with a tremendous free-kick with vision and the skill to match, breaking the deadlock against PAOK with 20 minutes left with an effort that deserves multiple views.

With the game level Benfica were awarded a free kick just outside the penalty area, giving Gaitan the perfect opportunity to show off his dazzling skills from set pieces.

The Argentine international floated a cheeky strike into the corner with aplomb to break the deadlock at the Stadium of Light, with Benfica going on to win 3-0 on the night and book their place in the Europa League last 16.

Spurs fans and the rest of the continent can check out arguably the finest free kick of the campaign to date in a must-see video at the top of the page.
