Lucas Leiva scores outrageous backheel for Lazio in Europa League

He wasn’t a player renowned for goalscoring during his 10 years on Merseyside.

In fact, Lucas Leiva managed just seven in 346 appearances as a Liverpool player.

His last came in January of last year.

But moving to Italy has clearly brought out the more adventurous side of the Brazilian, as Thursday night showed.

Lucas’ Lazio were in Europa League action in Belgium against Zulte-Waregem.

Trailing 2-1, the Serie A side – already assured of their place in the knockout stages – threw caution to the wind as they chased an equaliser.

And that led to Lucas doing this…

A remarkable moment, with the 30-year-old’s face telling its own story.

Unfortunately, the night ended in defeat for Lucas and his side, Zulte-Waregem grabbing an 83rd minute winner.

Lazio still topped their group, mind. And they’ll do well to top that goal any time soon…
