Normally we spend our time talking about two players – Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi after their simply mouth watering performances time and time again in La Liga. Recently there has been a pretender to the throne in Gareth Bale who has been putting in more than a little bit of a shift for Spurs.
Now however after this weekend all we can really think about is the simply sublime goal that Francesco Totti managed to net against Juventus. We would struggle to find a better goal with the pace and precision of the shot as struck by the Italian veteran icon.
In a tightly contested game the Roma skipper made all the difference with a sublime long ranged effort that eliminated everything in its wake as it found the back of the net like a bullet leaving Old Lady stopper Buffon with about as much chance at saving the strike as Rafael Benitez receiving an oustanding ovation from the Chelsea fans.
Whilst we cannot exactly say the goal was better than the one Zlatan Ibrahimovic conjured up against England it is certainly the goal of the weekend and something that Totti showed as much pleasure at as our punters do when it is happy hour.
Take a look at the amazing strike for yourself below.
