Giorgio Chiellini lights up the Coppa Italia final with a classy bicycle kick

Juventus — who are in the Champoions League final and have already won Serie A — are aiming for a historic treble.

JUVENTUS’ GIORGIO CHIELLINI is primarily thought of as a top defender, however the player showed tonight that he can be quite handy at the other end of the field too.

With his team 1-0 down against Lazio, Chiellini produced a superb bicycle kick to level the scores.

Juve ultimately prevailed 2-1 on the night after extra-time, thanks to a 97th minute Alessandro Matri goal.
