As the Champions League final approaches, it's time to look back at the top five goals of the campaign.
5. Oscar v Juventus
Chelsea paid nearly £20m for the Brazilian midfielder and he didn’t disappoint in his first Champions League game. He scored two goals and his second one was a curling strike that Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon didn’t have a chance to save

4. Lukas Poldoski v Montpellier
Lukas Poldoski left the relegated German club FC Cologne and went to Arsenal during last summer`s transfer window.
In his first two Champions League appearances he netted two goals before scoring a stunning strike later in the group stages to give Arsenal a 2-0 win over Montpellier. Poldoski slammed home a volley after a cheeky flick from Oliver Giroud.

3. Eliseu v Anderlecht
Malaga made the Champions League after finishing fourth and defeating Panathinakos in the play-off round.
Malaga was drawn into a group with AC Milan, Zenit Saint Petersburg and Anderlecht. Malaga finished first in the group after going on an undefeated run. Anderlecht failed to properly clear a corner that Eliseu pounced on and sent a missile into the top corner.
2. Lionel Messi v AC Milan
It was tough deciding what should be considered number two but this goal had a superb amount of passing before Messi fired the ball into the top left corner of net.
Barcelona found themselves 2-0 don at the start of the second leg. This goal from Messi started the comeback before they won 4-0 at home. A typical Barcelona goal as they progressed the ball up the pitch by passing before getting it close enough to the box for Messi to slam home.

1. Philippe Mexes v Anderlecht
This is the second time that Anderlecht is on the list but this goal was absolutely insane. Just one week after Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored his 30-yard bicycle kick against England, the Swedes former teammate Mexes added his own rendition as he chested a ball before sending it into the top corner in ridiculous fashion leaving Anderlecht keeper Silivo Proto in awe.
