Bale’s overhead kick against  Liverpool  in the Champions League Final was shortlisted for the award, while Ronaldo was also nominated for his acrobatic goal against Juventus in the same competition.

Salah beat the two former Real Madrid teammates to the trophy this year, thanks to his sublime curler in the Merseyside derby last season. The Egyptian winger scored 44 goals in all competitions for Liverpool last campaign.
