The 27-year-old picked the ball up on the right and ran at the Lazio defence with some awesome pace and his trademark power.
The Lazio defenders could do nothing but try and close Lukaku down but by the time the Belgian had gotten into the box he had squared the ball for Martinez who tapped in from close range.
Lukaku hit a personal milestone in the game as he scored his 299th and 300th career goals for both club and country, a remarkable record for a man who is just 27-years-old.
