Lazio 1-1 Atletico Madrid: Goals, highlights and report – Champions League 2023/24

Lazio goalkeeper Ivan Provedel scored a stunning header with the game's final touch to seal a point in their Champions League opener against Atletico Madrid.


Lazio rescued a last-second point in their Champions League Group E opener against Atletico Madrid, with goalkeeper Ivan Provedel heading home with the game’s final touch.

Pablo Barrios had Atleti ahead from the first half, and Maurizio Sarri could only watch on in frustration for most of the game as his Aquile failed to find anything resembling their form from last season that saw them qualify for the Champions League. But in the last second, with literally the final touch of the game, Provedel arrived and powered a bullet-like header past Jan Oblak on the end of a Luis Alberto attempt.

The result leaves both Lazio and Atletico Madrid on one point each. Feyenoord‘s win over Celtic has them top of Group E.
