Cristiano Biraghi made no mistake with his second shot of the match, smashing home this absolute rocket in just the 6th minute off an assist from Davide Astori (!?) who’d ventured to the edge of the box. For anyone who thinks this strike was lucky, keep in mind that Biraghi had nearly scored from the same spot about 3 minutes earlier, requiring a sprawling save from Stefano Sorrentino.
