Di Natale broke the deadlock after 20 minutes when he pounced on an absolute howler from Chievo goalkeeper Christian Puggioni.

However, there was nothing fortunate about his second before the break.

Roberto Pereyra produced an inch-perfect pass to Di Natale on the left side of the penalty area.

The 35-year-old then hit an absolutely sensational left-foot volley from a tight angle that flashed across Puggioni into the far top corner.

Paul Papp pulled one back for Chievo in the 35th minute, only for Di Natale to turn provider with Mehdi Benatia on target five minutes from full-time.

"The second goal was a masterpiece, a very hard goal to score," Udinese boss Francesco Guidolin said after the match.


The stunning goal was quite similar to the one Francesco Totti netted against Sampdoria in 2006.
