Zlatan-esque Backheel Golazo! Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid) vs Valencia

Monday, May 5, 2014

Real Madrid could only manage a 2-2 draw at home by Valencia on Sunday despite a stunning backheeled injury time equaliser from Cristiano Ronaldo.

A win would have put Carlo Ancelotti's men in a powerful position in the title race after Barcelona were held by Getafe on Saturday and leaders Atlético Madrid were beaten at Levante earlier on Sunday.

However, goals from Jérémy Mathieu and Daniel Parejo either side of Sergio Ramos' equaliser looked to have handed the visiting side a famous triumph.

But Ronaldo levelled in additional time with a fantastic backheel that Zlatan Ibrahimović would be proud of.

Ángel di María crossed the ball into the box and then a bit of ingenuity conjured up by Ronaldo somehow earned the home side a valuable point.

With his back to the goal, the Portuguese produced a moment of magic to backheel the ball past Valencia goalkeeper Diego Alves.

The 29-year-old is now the first player in the history of Spanish football to score 50 or more goals in four consecutive seasons.
