There have been some sublime goals scored in the finals over the years.

Lars Ricken scored a superb lobbed effort for Dortmund in the 1996/97 final when they took on Juventus.

There was also that Steve Mcmanaman volley for Real Madrid in the 1999/00 season against Valencia.

He is their current head coach, but who can forget that world-class Zinedine Zidane Volley against Bayer Leverkusen in the 2001/02 season.

They say that it’s Cristiano Ronaldo’s competition and who can blame them? The Portuguese superstar towered above everyone to head home for Manchester United in the 2007/08 final against Chelsea.

His fierce rival, Lionel Messi may not be known for his aerial prowess, but the little Argentine somehow managed to find the back of the net with a terrific header against a powerless Edwin Van Der Sar, when Barcelona took on United in the 2008/09 final.

The two teams met again in the 2010/11 final and this time David Villa was on target with an absolute blinder into the top corner.

Ivorian powerhouse Didier Drogba, helped Chelsea topple Bayern Munich with a trademark header in the 2011/12 final.

Real Madrid Captain Sergio Ramos, ensured Real Madrid won ‘La Decima’ when he rose highest in the 2013/14 final against cross-town rivals Atletico Madrid.

Probably one of the most unforgettable moments in the history of the UEFA Champions league was Gareth Bale’s overhead kick against Liverpool in the 2017/18 final.

 

What do you think was the best goal ever scored in a UCL final?
