The internet can’t believe the goal David Luiz scored for Chelsea v Roma

Beautifully placed

Chelsea and football fans have been going wild on social media for David Luiz’ wonder goal against Roma at Stamford Bridge.

The Brazilian was the talk of the town prior to the game following suggestions that he would be starting the game in midfield.

That was later confirmed as the team sheets were released, with Andreas Christensen starting in a three-back defence.

Luiz has played in the holding midfield role before, most notably against Fulham during his first spell with the club.

That meant that Chelsea fans were not worried about the selection following N’Golo Kante’s injury.

In fact, they will be rejoicing that decision after the player scored what can only be described as a beautiful finish.

The Brazilian ran onto a loose ball, urged to shoot by the Stamford Bridge faithful but opted to make a pass which didn’t find it’s target.

The ball fell yet again in front of Luiz who this time opted to shoot with his right foot, rifling it into the bottom corner.

Safe to say, even the best of forwards would be getting immense praise for a finish of that ilk, let alone a central defender.

Shaping up nicely

The opening stages of the game between Chelsea and Roma were certainly interesting, with the Italian’s also having a good go of it.

What makes this game even more important is the result for Atletico Madrid.

The Spanish side were only able to draw with Qarabag which means that it looks to be a straight shootout between Chelsea and Roma for top spot.

Chelsea went in 2-0 up at the break and that could well mean they head to top of the group this evening.

David Luiz’ strike might mean a lot more than you would think with that in mind.

Twitter reacts

Safe to say, the reaction for David Luiz’ goal was something else.
