The votes have been tallied and the results are in: Mario Mandzukic’s absolutely incredible overhead kick against Real Madrid has not been named as the best goal scored during the 2015/16 Champions League tournament.

That honour has instead gone to Besiktas striker Cenk Tosun, whose similarly acrobatic effort against Benfica in the group stages took a whopping 41% of UEFA’s online poll…

Mandzukic came in second with a paltry 19%, despite all the beautiful build-up play (during which the ball didn’t touch the ground) and the fact that it was SCORED AGAINST REAL MADRID IN THE FINAL…

Thievery. The man was robbed.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s freekick against former club Sporting Lisbon was voted third, with the rest of the results available to view here.
