Czech coach Zdeněk Zeman, famous for his all-attack style of football, is back at the Stadio Olimpico after 13 years and he named an attacking line-up for the visit of Catania on Sunday.

But the Giallorossi was made to pay for their lack of defensive discipline just 29 minutes in, as Giovanni Marchese slammed home a loose ball from a Sergio Almirón free-kick.

The home side drew level on the hour mark and they did it with real style.

Daniele De Rossi lofted a superb ball over the Catania defense for Osvaldo to leap into the air and convert it with a stunning scissor-kick.

The ball went into the far side of the goal, well past the outstretched arms of Catania goalkeeper Mariano Andújar.

Alejandro Gómez restored Catania's lead in the 68th minute but 18-year-old Nico López leveled in stoppage time on his debut only moments after coming off the bench.
