Dani Alves primarily operates as a right back but more or less acts as a wingback, as well as a winger and with his pace, skill and shot, who can blame him? The Barcelona star has flourished at the club since his big money arrival from Sevilla and it’s certainly money well spent. Total Pro Sports has compiled a list of the top 10 best Dani Alves goals.


With the ball being headed away from a defender from Iniesta’s magnificent cross, another player from the opposition tried to head it back to the keeper but Dani Alves pounced and converted the ball in from a volley in mid-air.


Getting the ball from an intelligent, defense-splitting pass from a Xavi, Dani Alves capitalized by taking a deaf touch into his stride which was then met by a subsequent side-footed shot from an acute angle.


In a match against Atletico Madrid, Dani Alves was once again poised to take his trademark free-kick and he certainly didn’t disappoint; from 35 yards or so, the player fired in a bullet from an angle that indeed adds to the quality of the goal.


Dani Alves’ trademark free-kicks are always a joy to behold with a shot that is predominately based on sheer power. His goal against Almeria was from a good 35 yards or so which went past the opposition’s wall and into the bottom left hand corner of the net.


Against an encounter with South Africa (FIFA Confederations cup) in an international match during the dying minutes of the game, Dani Alves was readying a free-kick from an area that was the player’s territory. From just the edge of the box, the right back fired in a shot into the top right hand corner of the net.


Iniesta’s floating ball was headed away by the defender to which Dani Alves then headed down with a quick reaction to Messi who then laid it off to the oncoming Alves; the right back flicked it away from the defender to which was met by an unstoppable shot into the top of the net.


In what proved to be a different approach than his power-driven free-kicks, this free-kick for Brazil was from a good 35 yards; the player side-footed a shot that had enough height, dip and power to find its way into the top right hand corner of the net.


Dani Alves’ pace has always proved to be a major attribute for the Barcelona right back. Showcasing his speed, the player knocked the ball down with his knee in order to continue his stride and then released a stop from the right hand side of the pitch all the way into the bottom left hand corner of the goal.


During a match with Getafe, the ball fell down into Dani Alves’ path to which he unleashed a mesmerizing, curling volley that powered into the right hand corner of the net.


During Barcelona’s second leg encounter in the Copa Del Ray (the Spanish league cup), the ball made its way into Dani Alves’ path after a fierce encounter between both sets of players regarding a Diarra foul on Messi; the right back then unleashed a pile driver that found its way into the top left hand corner of the net.
