It was another weekend of great goals in Europe's top five leagues.

We saw a special goal from a special talent in the Premier League, a sublime 50-yard free-kick(!) in La Liga, a classy scissor-kick volley in the Bundesliga, a mazy dribble from a player once compared to Lionel Messi in Serie A, and an effortlessly cool finish in Ligue 1.

La Liga: Pedro Leon | Getafe 3-1 Real Betis

Former Real Madrid winger Pedro Leon scored an unbelievable 50-yard free-kick against Real Betis for Getafe on Sunday night.

Did the 26-year-old mean it or was it a pure fluke? You decide.

Premier League: Adnan Januzaj | Sunderland 1-2 Manchester United

Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj announced himself to the world with a brace against Sunderland on Saturday.

The 18-year-old Belgian's first goal was a cool finish from inside the penalty area, but it was second which really caught the eye.

Januzaj struck an expert left-footed volley into the bottom corner of the net to earn the Red Devils three precious points.

Bundesliga: Rafael van der Vaart | Nurnberg 0-5 Hamburg

Hamburg secured an emphatic 5-0 away win over Nurnberg on Sunday afternoon - Rafael van deer Vaart opening the scoring with this sensational scissor-kick volley.

The Netherlands international, who netted a few stunners during his two-year spell at Tottenham, displayed excellent technique to score one of the best goals of his career.

Serie A: Juan Iturbe | Bologna 1-4 Verona

A few years ago, Juan Iturbe was compared to Lionel Messi.

Now on loan from Porto at Italian side Hellas Verona, the career of 20-year-old Iturbe has not panned out quite as we expected so far, but the Paraguay international showed his class with this Messi-esque solo goal against Bologna on Sunday.

Ligue 1: Milos Krasic | Bastia 4-1 Lorient

Another player whose career has not been as successful as everyone thought it would be, Milos Krasic scored a lovely goal in Bastia's 4-1 win over Lorient.

The 28-year-old Serbia international latched onto a clever flicked pass on the right-hand side of the pitch before bearing down on goal and producing a delicate chip over the goalkeeper.
