Rate The Scorching Overhead Kicks: Eren Derdiyok vs Julio Baptista – Who Did It Best? (Videos)

By Chris Wright

This weekend saw a couple of blinding overhead kick scored across the continent, with Eren Derdiyok and Julio Baptista both netting with rather sublime acrobatic efforts – question is, which one was better?

Exhibit A: Eren Derdiyok, BAYER LEVERKUSEN vs Wolfsburg

Scoop, rotate, fire…

Exhibit B: Julio Baptista, MALAGA vs Getafe

Bear in mind this was an injury-time winner…

So, who did it best Pies fans? Who ya got?

For the record, we’re marking out for Derdiyok’s effort on this occasion – if only because he can probably technically claim the assist as well!

    B. look how hard he hits it! perfect technique and it wins the match! onle thing better about the first one though is he does it all himself. it’s a tough one to pick

    i’m starting to change my mind!

  3. Ben says:

    B. Because you’d never expect it from O Animal (I’m not so familiar with Derdiyok though…)

  4. Al Neri says:

    I think A. Perfect 3 ball contacts, and excellent individual effort. Exhibit B is also amazing, but Derdyok did all by himself.

  5. Derdiyok. Perfect touch.

  6. Redskywalker says:

    Wow, Derdiyok’s is something special..

  7. Jon says:

    Derdiyok all the way.

  8. Markell says:

    Both excellent goals, one with incredible magnitude, the other with amazing ability, technique, and execution. I gotta go with Derdiyok for sheer outrageous skill. Pure class.

  9. Andy says:

    The Beast. Perfect timing and technique. Match winner.

  10. Patrick says:

    the first wins for sure. that’s just ridiculous!

    Although Baptista’s finish was more powerful. Derdiyok did it with two defenders around him.

  13. Griffi says:

    B. Look how much air time he has. It looks like he’s in mid-air for 5 seconds!

  14. Madjair says:

    @ Griffi: Exactly! Baptista seems to execute his ‘Fallr├╝ckzieher’ in slow motion. Love it.

    Derdiyoks….was class

  16. Gibby says:

    Derdiyoks because he looks like he’s made a James Hunt of it but redeems himself. Two defenders get goalside thinking they’ve done their job then up pops a wee overhead kick over 3 players ! Class. Widnae get away with it in 5 asides though ! BLOOTER ! Ha
