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.
Gerson, who ended up being sent off late on, had put the hosts 1-0 early on in the Europa Conference League quarter final but Payet added the second with a Puskas Award contender.
A corner was fizzed right across to Payet on the edge of the box in a set-piece routine straight off the training ground.

This is genuinely one of the greatest goals EVER scored from Dimitri Payet… pic.twitter.com/ldgZPaLcfC— Ryan Adsett (@ryanadsett) April 7, 2022
The former West Ham midfielder let the ball bounce one before unleashing an outrageous strike into the top corner.
The technique was utterly sensational and Payet celebrated with a knee slide at the corner flag as Marseille fans erupted.
Payet, a player who the streets will most definitely not forget, has scored a slew of great goals in his career.
He's bagged a whole host of incredible free-kicks, solo goals and even scored a side-foot volley for Marseille.
But this satisfying stunner has to well up there with the very best he has scored. It took his tally for the season to 13, a number he has reached in two other campaigns.

And he's done it with an absolutely incredible finish. 😍 pic.twitter.com/CutAKfwkKC
Payet's goal wasn't the only belter on Thursday night, as Eintracht Frankfurt's Ansgar Knauff smashed a long-range screamer to put the Bundesliga outfit ahead against Barcelona.
Still, for pure aesthetics, we reckon the Payet one takes the victory. Marseille's lead was cut early on in the second half when Omar El Kaddouri reduced the deficit just after half-time but Jorge Sampaoli's side held on for the win.
