It doesn’t look like any of the Premier League clubs are about to do anything special in the Champions League, so where can we turn for some football inspiration?
Barcelona are usually a good bet but it was Roma, their opponents, who produced a goal for the ages.
Well, we say Roma, but this goal was all about Alessandro Florenzi.
The midfielder showed exactly what to do when running into a dead end without any support…
Seriously, check out Florenzi's strike. Incredible. https://t.co/OLZAnmFm9C— Cork's RedFM Sport (@BigRedBench) September 16, 2015
That put them back on level terms with Barca AND it got the Joey Barton seal of approval!
