The Real Madrid star’s stunning strike came in his side’s 6-0 demolition of the Cypriots, as the Croatian international took a dropping ball first-time to slam his finish past a helpless Nauzet Perez.
But Modric faces some stiff competition this week, notably from Brazil international Dani Alves whose wicked, dipping shot from long-range rounded off PSG’s 7-1 victory over Celtic.
Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann will also be confident of taking the gong, however, after he ended a personal goal drought with a flying volley during a vital 2-0 win over Roma.
Napoli's Lorenzo Insigne is also in contention for a wonderfully-controlled curling strike from distance against Shakhtar, while Tottenham’s Heung-Min Son rounds off the nominations with an emphatic finish in his side’s 2-1 at Dortmund.
