Dimitri Payet maintained his reputation as a player who only scores worldies by smashing in the most incredible half volley against PAOK this evening.
The Marseille captain extended his side’s lead just before half-time at the Stade Velodrome in stunning style.
Marseille went 1-0 up in their Europa Conference League quarter-final first leg tie at the Stade Velodrome through Gerson before Payet added the second with a Puskas Award contender just before half-time.
Marseille had a corner and the 35-year-old, who has scored countless screamers in his career, positioned himself some 30 yards away from goal and lashed an extraordinary effort which rose into the top corner.
That was Payet’s 12th goal of the campaign as is on course to record the best goal-scoring season of his career.
