Pedro Scores The Most Outrageous Backheel Volley For Chelsea

Pedro has produced one of the most outrageous backheel finishes in Chelsea's 5-3 victory over Red Bull Salzburg in Austria.

The Blues were 3-1 up in the second half before Pedro, 32, scored his side's fourth with a stunning finish at the Red Bull Arena.

Ross Barkley chipped the ball into the box and the Spanish winger arrived in time to pull off a fantastic backheel volley.

Christian Pulisic, who was signed from Borussia Dortmund for £58m, opened his account for the Blues in the 20th minute.

And Barkley, who has been in fine form during the pre-season tour, fired home Chelsea's second from the spot-kick minutes later.

Pulisic, 20, would complete his first-half brace in the 28th minute to send Frank Lampard's side into half-time with a 3-0 cushion.

Jerome Onguene would pull one back for Red Bulls, but then Pedro scored his brilliant backheel volley.

Takumi Minamino fired in from the spot-kick in the 85th minute for the Austrian side to hand them a fighting chance against Chelsea.

But Michy Batshuayi found the back of the net minutes later to put Chelsea in complete control of the match once again.

Minamino was able to complete his brace deep into injury time, but Lampard's men walked away with another victory on their pre-season tour.

The Blues will play their final pre-season match on Saturday against Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany.

Chelsea will kick off their Premier League season next Sunday when they travel to Old Trafford for their clash with Manchester United.

Will Chelsea finish in the top four next season?
