The best soccer team in Europe is being decided Saturday with Real Madrid and Juventus playing in the Champions League final in Cardiff, Wales.

You may greet that news with a shrug, but you have to admit that a goal scored in the game was one of the best you’ll see.

Real Madrid held a 1-0 lead in the first half when Juventus’ Mario Mandžukić scored on an overhead kick in the 26th minute. This is amazing.

Was it a bicycle kick? A scissors kick? Doesn’t matter. People were calling it the best goal in a Champions League final, and it’s hard to argue with that.
