Oscar scores twice in three minutes on Champions League debut, including this Zola-esque beauty

It's only been two months since Chelsea spent upwards of £20 million on 21-year-old Brazilian midfielder Oscar and in his Champions League debut against Juventus, he wasted no time in showing why they're so excited about him. With goals off his first two shots in the 31st and 33rd minutes, Oscar gave Chelsea a 2-0 lead (that would be cut to 2-1 before halftime and ended 2-2) and drew comparisons to club legend Gianfranco Zola (who did this against Wimbledon in a 1997 FA Cup semifinal) with his second.

Oscar's first goal was aided by a deflection off of Juve defender Leonardo Bonucci, but his second was a curling stunner into the top corner off the turn at the top of the box. And that's how you make a Champions League debut.
