We’re used to seeing it from Alphonso Davies at this point, but that doesn’t make the Bayern Munich sensation’s assist against Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals on Friday any less of a delightful highlight.
The 19-year-old former Vancouver Whitecaps Homegrown product tallied another filthy assist from his left back spot in the 63rd minute of Friday’s match, absolutely toying with Barca defender Nelson Semedo with a juke that left him in the dust before charging into the box and laying the ball off to teammate Joshua Kimmich for an easy finish. Watch it below.

The goal gave Bayern a commanding 5-2 second-half lead in an explosive all-around effort that turned into a result for the ages for the German giants. They would go on to win 8-2, with Davies coming off after their sixth goal in the 84th minute.
Next up for Davies and Bayern is Wednesday’s semifinal, where they will face the winner of Saturday’s clash between Manchester City and Lyon.
