With his team 3-up at the time Maietta won possession as the last Verona defender, before immediately following that up by winning a tackle in a meaty fashion.

By this stage Maietta was facing the Torino defense virtually on his lonesome, but that failed to phase the 29-year-old as he took on his covering defender to perfection.

And then came the finish; an amazing 30-yard shot over the keeper and into the net.

Unsurprisingly the Verona bench went berserk after the goal went in.
