Down 1–0 to Atlético Madrid in stoppage time, the Italian shot-stopper became the fourth goalkeeper to score a Champions League goal—and only the second to score from the run of play (rather than from a penalty).
With the four minutes of stoppage time already up, Lazio made one last-ditch effort off a corner as the 29-year-old keeper was called forward for what was expected to be the final play of the match.
After the initial corner was stopped, Luis Alberto whipped a sharp cross into the area that found a streaking Provedel, whose glancing header sent the ball into the back of the net.

While Provedel hardly celebrated the feat, the goal sent off a raucous celebration in front of the home crowd at the Stadio Olimpico as Lazio stole a point of fAtlético following Pablo Barrios’s 29th-minute goal.
It was the first Champions League by a goalkeeper since Vincent Enyeama in 2010. German keeper Hans-Jörg Butt, known for his penalty-taking abilities, holds the Champions League record for goals among goalkeepers with three.
