Mario Mandzukic with the Champions League goal of the year?

Juventus forward Mario Mandzukic hit an incredible overhead kick vs. Real Madrid just minutes after a Cristiano Ronaldo goal to draw the Champions League final even at 1–1 in the first half in Cardiff, Wales.

The looping goal, which just evaded leaping Real Madrid goalkeeper Keylor Navas, capped a sensational sequence in which Juventus volleyed the ball of the ground through three players and five touches, before Mandzukic worked his magic with his back to goal.

Ultimately it was a footnote on the day, with Real Madrid scoring three unanswered in the second half to win the title 4-1. But what a footnote it was:

Mandzukic is just the third player to score in the European Cup/Champions League final for two different teams.

You can watch that forever on repeat.
