We asked a few of Pep Guardiola's stars to replicate what is perhaps the greatest goal the competition has ever seen - here's how they did

It is one of the most iconic moments in the history of the UEFA Champions League, arguably the greatest goal the competition has ever seen.

And that’s in no small part due to the outrageous technical difficulty of the strike . 

Roberto Carlos did his Real Madrid team-mate Zinedine Zidane few favours in the 2002 UCL final when the Brazilian lofted a square pass up into the clouds.

Onlookers wondered how just all-time great Zizou would go about bringing the ball down, but instead the legendary Frenchman hit the most perfect volley – with his weaker foot – to forever write himself into UCL folklore.

So ahead of Matchday Five, Goal in conjunction with Nissan organised for some Manchester City stars to attempt to recreate the wonder goal.

Watch below as Fernandinho and Oleksandr Zinchenko take on Ilkay Gundogan and Brahim Diaz in a battle to replicate the impossible.

Can Man City stars recreate Zidane's famous volley?

Fernandinho + Zinchenko = Team Warrior Gundogan + Diaz = Team Technique The task: Recreate Zidane’s volley from the 2002 UCL final! Who wins?
