Mario Mandzukic scored a stunning goal for Juventus against Real Madrid
Cristiano Ronaldo gave Real Madrid the lead after 20 minutes with a deflected strike but Juventus were quick to fight back.
Mandzukic was found in the box by Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain with his back to goal and he unleashed a looping overhead kick from 15 yards out which left goalkeeper Keylor Navas helpless and nestled into the top right corner.
Former Real Madrid midfielder Steve McManaman, who was commentating on the game, was impressed with the goal.
"What a goal from Mario Mandzukic," he said on BT Sport.
"Great play, (Leonardo) Bonucci to (Alex) Sandro. Higuain has been really sharp.
"It took a bit of time to get down but what a connection. High, looping over Keylor Navas."

Former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer was equally amazed with the effort from the Juventus forward.
"My word what a finish that is," he said on BBC Radio 5 Live.
"With his back to goal he had no option but to try the overhead kick!
"He tried it and Navas had no chance. That was one hell of a finish.
"What a strike! He catches it so sweet."
Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard was critical of Navas' role in the goal but paid tribute to the strike.
"It's a great 50 yard pass from Bonucci, Sandro does well to keep it in the air," he said on BT Sport.
"A lovely touch from Higuain and what an unbelievable finish. Back to goal, overhead kick, what bigger stage to deliver on for Mandzukic. Great finish."
"Sandro does terrifically well to control a 50-yard pass off Bonucci, to keep it in the air and find Higuain.
"I think if you're being critical you could maybe look at the goalkeeper.
"It does my head in when you see goalkeepers going with their other hand in that situation, I think they do it to try and show off, to try and get the credit for it, for the perfect save when they can go with their other hand."

Rio Ferdinand echoed Gerrard's views but thinks former goalkeepers would not agree with them.
"We were talking could the goalkeeper have gone with his other arm, if we're being super-critical, maybe yeah." he added.
" think you've just got to appreciate the technique and the execution of that goal there.
"I agree (with Gerrard), the goalkeepers union will be hammering us at home.
"'What do you know? What do you know? You're not even a goalkeeper!'. But that's the way we see it."
