Mathieu Valbuena scores uncanny Zidanesque volleyed Golazo V Bastia

Mathieu Valbuena loves a Golazo. Much maligned in France for his tendency to go to ground, Petit Velo makes up for his shortcomings (no pun intended) with regular Golazos.

His volleye against Bastia on Wednesday night was uncanny in its resemblance to Zinedine Zidane’s famous left-footed Golazo in the 2002 Champions League Final against Bayer Leverkusen. (There’s obviously no question as to which is the better Golazo.)

Watch Mathieu Valbuena’s Zidanesque Golazo here, with Zidane’s famous Golazo below for comparison.
