How good was that Mandzukic goal?

Juventus striker Mario Mandzukic scored a brilliant volley to level the match at 1-1. Some fans think it might be the best goal ever scored in a Champions League final.

Mario Mandzukic scored one of the great Champions League final goals in the first half of Juventus’ clash with Real Madrid – and you can watch it again here.

The Juventus star controlled Gonzalo Higuain’s pass with his chest, and with his back to goal produced an overhead kick to beat Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas.

The goal came at a very good time for the Serie A champions after Cristiano Ronaldo had put Los Blancos ahead early on.

Ronaldo’s goal made him the first player to score in three Champions League finals.

But all the talk heading into half-time was the sheer brilliance of┬áMandzukic’s goal.
