Gareth Bale scores absurd bicycle kick in Champions League final (Video)

Gareth Bale put Real Madrid ahead of Liverpool in the Champions League final with this ludicrous bicycle kick:


Real Madrid had gone ahead with the flukiest of goals, only to see Sadio Mane equalize. This one was fluky in its own way – only because it was so otherworldly, so perfect. One hundred other players could try that same skill 100 times each, and they’d all fail.

Cristiano Ronaldo, who scored a bicycle kick of his own in the Champions League quarterfinals, couldn’t help but laugh in the background as Bale went off to celebrate.

Real Madrid leads Liverpool 2-1 with 20 minutes remaining.
