However, Provedel produced a true striker’s finish to ensure Lazio would not begin their Champions League campaign with a defeat.
Atletico failed to properly clear the ball from a Lazio corner, before the ball found its way to Lazio’s Luis Alberto on the edge of the box.
As Alberto prepared to whip in the cross, the unmarked Provedel darted through Atletico’s defensive lines and timed his run to perfection to nod home past Jan Oblak, sparking wild scenes at the Stadio Olimpico.
Provedel’s 95th-minute strike also made him just the fourth different goalkeeper to score in a Champions League fixture and the first to do so since 2010.
