The Spanish visitors looked set to take all three points back home for the Stadio Olimpico courtesy of Pablo Barrios’ first half strike.

But with 95 minutes on the clock, the 29-year-old shotstopper ventured forward to join the attack for one last throw of the dice at a set-piece.

The initial corner was cleared by the Atletico defence, but it fell straight back to the taker, who then pushed the ball to Luis Alberto.

The attacker whipped in a dangerous in-swinging cross from out on the left, and it sailed over everybody until the leaping Provedel met it and glanced home a header past his opposite number Jan Oblak to spark wild scenes.

His unbelievable moment has etched his name into the Champions League history books by becoming only the second goalkeeper to score from open play in the competition.
