Chelsea have reached their twelfth major final during Roman Abramovich’s reign after Brazilian David Luiz scored a scorcher of a goal to put the game out of FC Basel’s reach in the UEFA Europa League semi-final second leg.

With a goal that looked like it was going to be teed up for Frank Lampard, David Luiz decided to have a crack at goal instead, which he took beautifully and curled the ball into the corner of the net.

Here’s David Luiz’s goal in all its beauty:

    A little curve on that one, huh? I like looking at the keeper, who barely moves at first because he thinks it’s going 30 feet wide.

  2. Dust says:

    What a ridiculous goal…unreal…Benitez playing him in the midfield role is really paying off. Now there are murmurings of Mourinho and him potentially buying Alonso… Anyways… Great goal
