Fabrizio Miccoli's long-range free-kick in the 27th minute bizarrely swerved in mid-air to change direction once over the defensive wall and seemed to wrong-foot the goalkeeper, who was stretched out on the ground.

However, Agazzi lifted his trailing foot for a scorpion flick to backheel the ball off the line.

"I was incredibly lucky!" Agazzi told Sky Italia.

"Would I be able to repeat it? Certainly, but I'd wreck my knee! I already snapped one cruciate ligament in my career.

"It really was an incredibly dangerous save to make."
