Provedel had already scored in his career: on 7 February 2020 he scored the 2-2 goal for Juve Stabia in added time in the away match against Ascoli, thus entering the small circle of goalkeepers who have scored a goal.

“I asked how much was left and I went to the area seeing as it was close to the end, it’s a shame that the goal only came at the end. I still think I don’t realize it.” This was said by Lazio goalkeeper Ivan Provedel, scorer of the decisive goal in the 95th minute for the draw against Atletico Madrid in the Champions League. “But football in good times and bad is fast and fast, I’m enjoying it tonight but we’re not doing well in the league. We have to win on Saturday. Did I score a good goal? I studied Immobile, to make a joke, I went where I knew I would Luis Alberto would have put it”, added Provedel to Sky Sport.
