The Italian commentary for Edin Dzeko's volley v Chelsea will never get old

Chelsea FC v AS Roma - UEFA Champions League

Chelsea were involved in another Champions League classic at Stamford Bridge as they rescued a 3-3 draw with AS Roma on Wednesday night.

Goals from David Luiz and Eden Hazard had propelled the Blues into a 2-0 lead with Antonio Conte's men looking set to ease out a third consecutive European win. However, the Italian visitors weren't in the mood to fly home fruitless.

Ex-Manchester City man Aleksandr Kolarov gave Roma hope with a typical left-footed strike past Thibaut Courtois to bring the half-time score to 1-2.

The second-half then became the Edin Dzeko show.

During his five years in the Premier League, the Bosnian striker never scored against Chelsea but was on a mission to alter his record on Wednesday. After all, this is a forward who, after scoring 39 goals last season, has earned himself a place on the Ballon d'Or list.

In the end, he scored twice at the Bridge, propelling Roma into a lead that was eventually cancelled out by Hazard's header - ensuring the spoils were shared in west London.

Dzeko's first goal, though, was something truly special and rather reminiscent of Robin van Persie's famous volley for Arsenal against Everton in December 2011.

The more recent effort might fall slightly short of it's predecessor but there's no doubting the class.

And what better way to improve a great goal, than with great commentary?

You only have to sift through Martin Tyler's dossier to see how dramatic television coverage can make some of football's most important moments deliver that extra wave of goosebumps.

Brazilian commentators are renowned for their long 'goal' calls and there have been some crazy Spanish efforts over the years, yet the Italian reaction to Dzeko's strike is certainly up there.

Check out the manic calling below:

Well you can't exactly fault the presenter for passion, that's for sure. His reaction perfectly reflected the response from the away end and Roma supporters watching back in the Eternal City.

The Italian side are often there and there abouts in Serie A yet struggle to transfer their tailing of Juventus to strong performances in Europe. Coming so close to victory at Chelsea is undoubtedly one of their biggest scalps.

It won't do the Blues any favours, though, who emerged from their Crystal Palace defeats with a tepid defence of a 2-0 lead. 


There was no stopping that Dzeko volley, mind - brilliant stuff.
