I'm confused why the first goal is classed as an OG. The freekick is on target, so why isn't it Griezmanns goal? Obviously when a player shoots and it deflects off a defender (or keeper) the striker gets the goal, so why is this freekick different, anybody know?

That's a good shout that beast.

It was on target but the keeper would have collected it. The touch off the defender took it past the keeper.

I always thought if it was on target and took a deflection it was the strikers goal .
Off target takes a deflection own goal.

My understanding is the same as that jred but it must be deemed an attempt at goal i believe. Grey ish area.

I am under the impression tbat if the deflection drastically changes the path of the ball then it is an og. Otherwise it is credited to the striker.

Pretty sure if on target and deflected, it’s the attackers goal - even if it wasn’t intentionally a shot. If it’s off target and would therefore be missing without the defender’s intervention, then it’s an own goal.
