Racing Club midfielder Luciano Vietto was the toast of the terraces on the final weekend of the Argentine season after he scored a sensational panenka penalty to kick-start a 3-0 win over Union Santa Fe.

The 19-year-old kept a cool head from 12-yards, showing maturity far beyond his years, as he confidently chipped his spot-kick straight down the middle of the goal, breaking the deadlock minutes before the half-time interval.

Playing host to the league's bottom side, Racing set out an attacking approach from the outset, and built on their lead in the second half after Diego Villar netted just after the hour mark.

Ricardo Centurion grabbed a third goal in stoppage time, marking a memorable end to the 2012/13 campaign, but it was Vietto who stole the show with his cheeky penalty effort.
