The French magazine has compiled a list of the 50 best goals in the competition's history.
Zidane's sublime volley in Glasgow, in the final against Bayer Leverkusen which yielded La Novena, has been chosen by France Football as "the most beautiful" goal in Champions League history. The French publication has put together a list of the 50 best strikes from since the competition kicked off (in 1992), until today. According to the magazine, Zidane's goal is a perfect blend of, "balance, finesse, power… It has everything".
 
Beyond that goal, third place on the France Football list is taken by Cristiano Ronaldo's bicycle-kick, scored in Turin against Juventus in 2018. Sixth place is filled by Gareth Bale's effort, another overhead-kick against Liverpool  in the final which clinched La Decimotercera in Kiev. Raúl's second goal against Manchester United in 2000 also features, in 35th place, with special mention for Redondo's spectacular back-heel at Old Trafford in the build-up.
