Check Out Some Of The Greatest UCL Final Goals In History

The UEFA Champions’ League is a special competition with some special players and there has been a few fantastic goals scored in the final over the years. We look at some of the best UCL Final goals.

When Liverpool take on Tottenham Hotspur in the final on Saturday night in Madrid, football fans across the world will be hoping to see a cracking game filled with goals.

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?
