Marco Reus and Raphaël Guerreiro showed why Borussia Dortmund are a force to be reckoned with this season after their brilliant free-kick against Werder Bremen.
The 29-year-old German international and the 24-year-old Portuguese international duped almost everyone with their rehearsed routine.
With Reus standing over the ball, Guerreiro would do the dummy run and it looked like it hadn't worked at first.
As he walked back, however, the Dortmund star would whip the ball into the box and Paco Alcácer would open the scoring for the German club.
Check it out below.
This is just brilliant :raised_hands:
Dortmund's opening goal vs Werder Bremen was a clever and well rehearsed free-kick routine...
You see Guerreiro and Reus discuss it, sell the fake so well, then deliver an inch-perfect cross for Paco Alcacer :ok_hand:
They are a joy to watch this season :yellow_heart: pic.twitter.com/ATterJZqfm

It could not have been pulled off any better if they tried, to be fair.
Reus would score in the first half and hand Dortmund a 2-0 lead before half-time. Max Kruse would pull Werder Bremen back into the match with his second-half strike, but it wouldn't stop Dortmund from maintaining their unbeaten start in the Bundesliga this season.
Lucien Favre's men remain top of the league after 15 matches and have a nine-point lead over second-place Borussia Mönchengladbach and third-place Bayern Munich.
Despite the victory, the 61-year-old Dortmund coach believes that his side made the match much more difficult than it should have been.
"We're satisfied, but becoming winter champions doesn't mean so much," he told the club's official website.
"We have another two games left. The next is the very important game in Dusseldorf on Tuesday.
"Today we made life a little difficult for ourselves. We had eight clear chances and could've made it 3-1. Our opponents today were very good."
Favre has a tough task in the January transfer window when it comes to Dortmund star Christian Pulisic, who has attracted interest from both Chelsea and Liverpool.
It has been reported that the Blues have made an 'official' bid to sign the highly rated 20-year-old USA international.
