We might have already seen the Goal of the Year winner. Coming from the Bundesliga, Borussia Monchengladbach striker, Alassane Plea scored a ridiculous volley.
Borussia Monchengladbach are currently third in the Bundesliga after a stellar start to the season under manager, Marco Rose.
However, their in-form striker, Alassane Plea might've just won the Puskas Award already after an absolutely stunning volley this weekend.
Backswing with the front foot, volleyed into the net with his standing foot :ok_hand:
Incredible skill or pure luck from Alassane Pléa?

Plea has seven goals and five assists in 17 games in the Bundesliga this year, and this goal is surely his best by far.
The 26-year-old French Striker joined the German side OGC Nice in the Summer of 2018 for £20 Million and scored 15 goals in his debut season for Monchengladbach.
Drawing 1-1 against Mainz, Monchengladbach put a cross off an indirect free-kick which landed on Flea. However, the ball landed on his closest foot rather than the foot that looked like he was going to strike with.
The move by Pleas completely fooled the Mainz goalkeeper, slotting the ball in the corner and putting Monchengladbach 2-1 up. Monchengladbach ended the game 3-1.
