WATCH HIS 10 MOST BEAUTIFUL CL-GOALS

Tomorrow 20.45 it's that time again.

Before the important game against Chelsea we take the time to remember Zlatan's 10 most beautiful goals in his 116 games-long Champions League-career.

 

 

1. THE BOMB

23 October 2013.

Anderlecht 0-5 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN

0-3 - 36rd minute | Group stage 2013/14

In this incredible game in the fall of 2013, Zlatan scored 4 goals which caused the Anderlecht-crowd to give him a standing ovation.

 

2. THE STRIKE FROM HEAVEN

7 November 2007.

INTER 4-2 CSKA Moscow.

4-2 - 75th minute | Group stage 2007/08

2007/08 was the season Ibra really started scoring in Champions League, this was a magic November-night back in 2007.

 

3. THE ARTISTIC BACKHEEL

23 October 2013.

Anderlecht 0-5 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN

0-2 - 22nd minute | Group stage 2013/14.

For Zlatan this almost seems like a normal goal but judging the difficulty in pace and balance, it must be seen as a spectacular goal. The goal before #1 on this list.

 

4. THE LEFT FOOT MISSILE

18 February 2014.

Bayer Leverkusen 0-4 PARIS SAINT-GERMAIN

0-4 - 42nd minute | Round of 16 2013/14

Left foot wrist bombs are unusual for right footed players, also for Zlatan. 2013/14 is the season he scored most goals (10), this one came in the round of 16.

 

5. THE FIRST

17 September 2002.

AJAX 2-0 Lyon

1-0 - 11th minute | Group stage 2002/03

Zlatan's first Champions League-goal. After a tough first season in Ajax, he scored this great goal in the beginning of the second and took the first step towards becoming a big player in Zlatan.

 

6. THE BREAKTHROUGH

22 October 2003.

AJAX 1-0 Celta Vigo

1-0 - 53rd minute | Group stage 2003/04

Classic sacrificing Zlatan on the finish, amazing confidence and bravery on the breakthrough. He only played three seasons for Ajax, but will always be remembered.

 

7. THE SNIPING BEAUTY

9 December 2008.

Werder Bremen 2-1 INTER

2-1 - 88th minute | Group stage 2008/09

Something as usual as an unimportant goal for Ibra. But what a strike. Remarkable power and accuracy. Assister: Maxwell!

 

8. THE SLEDGEHAMMER

23 November 2010.

Auxerre 0-2 MILAN

0-1 - 64th minute | Group stage 2010/11

Zlatan scored his first goal for Milan against Auxerre at home. He wasn't nicer to them away, this hard shot won the game for Milan.

 

9. THE IMPORTANT LOB

31 March 2010.

Arsenal 0-2 BARCELONA

0-1 - 46th minute | Round of 16 2009/10

The season with Barcelona is the closest Zlatan has gotten to win CL. On the way to the semifinal he knocked out Arsenal on English turf with this beautiful lob.

 

10. THE PLAYFUL TOYING WITH ROBERTO CARLOS

27 November 2007.

INTER 3-0 Fenerbah├že

2-0 - 66th minute | Group stage 2007/08

Few players in the world have the confidence to stand still before legend Roberto Carlos in the penalty area this long and then teasingly place the ball in net.
Which one is your favorite?
