Carlos Tevez is having himself a year.

The Juventus star continues to score goal after goal, many in stunning fashion, now with 17 Serie A goals after this tally against Empoli on Saturday.

It came after Empoli goalkeeper Luigi Sepe handled a back pass to set up an indirect free kick just outside the six-yard box.

The ball was touched to Tevez, who hit a ball with extreme force above the Empoli wall.

It’s fortunate Tevez didn’t take a player’s head off on the way into the goal.
