1. Cristiano Ronaldo vs Valencia
Real were trailing 2-1 at home to Valencia heading into the 89th minute of a La Liga game in May 2014. Angel di Maria lifted the ball across the penalty area and Ronaldo pulled off a kind of reverse karate kick volley to send the ball into the net past stunned goalkeeper Diego Alves. That goal kept Real Madrid in the league that season, though eventually the Blancos could only manage a third place finish, three points behind winners Atletico Madrid.
