A spectacular goal from Emerson almost completed the fightback for Livorno before they eventually had to share the points with Torino in a 3-3 draw at the Stadio Armando Picchi.

Goals from Ciro Immobile and Kamil Glik gave the visitors a two goal lead inside the opening eight minutes, but Livorno were level at half-time thanks to goals from Paulinho and Leandro Greco.

Emerson then gave the hosts the lead for the first time on 62 minutes with what could well be a contender for goal of the season.

The Brazilian defender picked the ball up in his own half before running forward and unleashing an absolute belter from 30 yards past Torino goalkeeper Daniele Padelli.

But the Amaranto conceded a late equaliser from an Alessio Cerci penalty that ensured the six-goal thriller end in a draw.

"It's absolutely the best goal of my career," Emerson told Livorno's website.
