Tuesday night's Champions League was highlighted by a special Olivier Giroud goal as Chelsea recorded a 1-0 win over Atletico Madrid at the National Arena in Bucharest.
The Frenchman gave the Blues a perfect win, rising to perfectly meet a Marcos Alonso ball that came off a defender.
Over the years, the competition has seen a number of stunning overhead kicks, and we sample some of the outstanding ones.
It took a while to be confirmed by VAR, but what a goal by Olivier Giroud for Chelsea! 🚲— Superbru (@Superbru) February 23, 2021

The Portuguese scored what he termed 'his best career goal' against Juventus in the 2018 quarter-finals as they won 3-0.
Ronaldo perfectly timed Dani Carval's cross into the box, rose highest to neatly strike the ball into the back of the net.
For a moment, everyone froze and there was silence in the stadium as the fans, including a visibly stunned Zidane, tried to comprehend what they had witnessed.
Then moments later, applause broke out, and it came from all sides of the stadium as Juventus fans rose to their feet to acknowledge and recognize a sporting genius who scored one of the greatest goals in the competition.

😮 A year ago today - one of the great #UCL goals - Cristiano Ronaldo's sensational overhead kick in Turin! 🔥🔥🔥#OnThisDay @Cristiano pic.twitter.com/5nbrzSqXDw
The former Liverpool and England striker is known for his acrobatics and in 2006 at Anfield, the lanky forward did it again.
The Liverpool striker readjusted his body to meet Steve Finnan's cross flush with a bicycle-kick volley at the Kop end, guiding his side to a 3-2 Champions League win.
The goal has been voted the best bicycle kick ever in the competition, and it's not hard to see why.
What a better way to make an impact other than in the Champions League final. That is what exactly Gareth Bale did as Real Madrid beat Liverpool to lift the 2019 title.
The Welshman was a second-half introduction and he made an immediate impact as scored one of the competition's best goals, waiting on a Marcelo cross from the left and took flight to smash home a wonderful kick.
His goal needs no introduction. The striker, playing for Juventus then, drew them level against Real Madrid in a hotly contested clash.
Mandzukic chested the ball down before completing a perfect bicycle kick into the top corner, past the outstretched arm of Keylor Navas.
