Philippe Coutinho scores the December Goal of the Month
From start to finish: Philippe Coutinho's goal to make it 3-1 against Werder Bremen was a work of art. The lob from the master technician landed not just in the opposing goal, but in the fans' hearts. The FC Bayern supporters chose the sumtuous finish as their goal of the month for December with an overwhelming majority.
Only through continuous training can a player develop abilities like that. We accompanied Coutinho at a session in Doha 👇
This is how the goal came about: David Alaba chipped the ball over the Bremen defence with a delicate pass straight into the run of the Brazilian. He controlled the ball with his first touch, and with his second he lobbed perfectly over the advancing goalkeeper under the crossbar and into the net.
Double win for Coutinho
But there's more: In second place was another Coutinho goal from the same game. The unbelievable curling shot from the little magician made the score 6-1 on the day and received 28% of the vote. Third place went to Oliver Batista-Meier's pinpoint free kick in the 2-0 win for the FCB U19s in Augsburg.
