Serie B side Citadella found themselves on the wrong end of a 4-1 hiding from Lazio in the Coppa Italia on Thursday night. However, the losers did manage to score the goal of the game, via an absolute thumper from Paolo Bartolomei.

Lazio were already 3-0 up at the Stadio Olimpico, when the visitors won a free-kick just before the break.

Midfielder Bartolomei duly stepped up to produce a magnificent booming effort from all of 30 yards which arrowed past a wrong-footed Thomas Strakosha and into the back of the Lazio net.

Quite a satisfyingly straight effort, that.

Ciro Immobile would get his second of the game late, via a superb chip from a Lucas Leiva assist.

Roman giants Lazio progress to the last eight of the competition. However, the goal of the game goes to Citadella and Bartolomei.
