Ivan Provedel, an Italian goalkeeper of Russian origins, scored a crucial goal in the first leg against Atletico Madrid (1:1) that saved his team from defeat.

Competition for the Best Goal Award

Provedel’s goal is in contention for the award alongside goals from Joao Felix (Barcelona, Spain), Angelo Fulgini (Lens, France), and Tite (Galatasaray, Turkey).

A Historic Goal by Provedel

By scoring a goal from open play, Provedel became the second goalkeeper in the history of the Champions League to achieve this feat. The only other goalkeeper to score a field goal was Sinan Polat, the Turkish goalkeeper of the Belgian team “Standard,” who accomplished this in a group stage match against the Dutch team AZ Alkmaar in 2009. Provedel, born in Pordenone, Italy, has Russian heritage through his mother, and his grandfather had a personal connection with Lev Yashin, the only goalkeeper to have won the Ballon d’Or.
