In the match against Parma, in the 2012 Champions League final, Hellas Verona striker Antonin Barak scored a header close to that of Chelsea hero Didier Drogba.
Barak stepped up to meet the ball and headed it into a tight corner which the keeper failed to expect, receiving Federico Dimarco’s left-footed corner. Verona also reversed the role with this aim and won 2-1 over her guest, Parma.
More interestingly, this aim is quite close to Drogba’s goal in the final of the Champions League. By then, Chelsea was 0-1 behind Bayern Munich, and a corner from left-footed Juan Mata got the striker’s header to equalize.
“It immediately flashed into my mind. I want to score a goal in the Champions League final. Hopefully, I can reach my target and continue to grow,” the striker from Hellas Verona said.
At present, Hellas Verona is doing very well, ranking ninth in Serie A. The striker has scored five goals in Serie A in 19 games.
“For me, it’s been a good season, we’ve all done well. I’m happy when the team is doing well and the way we practice is happy. We have a good group, that’s our strength. It’s been a good season for me, we all performed well. I’m happy when the team is doing well and I’m happy with the way we train. We have a good group, that’s our strength.
The coach gives freedom in the middle of the field and front. We feel the football, we feel the moment and we try to have fun and score goals,” said the 26-year-old player.
