Nikola Kalinic started things off right with an acrobatic over-the-shoulder volley off of a deflected free kick in the 10th minute.

The Croatian doubled his tally at the 40’ mark with a brilliant spinning backheel that pinged in off the post, with the assist going to the impressive Federico Chiesa—his first ever in Serie A.
After something approaching an almighty goalmouth scramble at 76’ that may have featured a couple of fouls and handballs, Francesco Acerbi eventually halved the deficit.
