Juventus’ Mario Mandzukic nets one of the craziest goals in Champions League history

Bicycle kicks are magical things. Mario Mandzukic’s goal in the Champions League final took the bicycle kick to another level.

The Juventus forward tied the biggest match in club soccer — Real Madrid had taken an lead on a goal by Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo’s goal was very good, but this is ridiculous.

Mandzukic, the Croatian star, executes a lob of a bicycle kick by going over two defenders — and kicking it to the corner that Real’s Keylor Navas was better-keeping. Look at this photo to see how well Real had him defended.
