The goal is selected by UEFA technical observers

Pedro Gonçalves' goal in the Europa League Round of 16 second leg against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium in London has been chosen as the best goal of the 2022/23 Europa League by the UEFA technical observer panel.

In the away tie, Paulinho recovered the ball in midfield and Gonçalves picked out a long range shot on goal, sending his effort over helpless Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale and into the net from over 50 metres out. The 1-1 result allowed Sporting Clube de Portugal to qualify for the quarter-finals of the competition.
