When these sides met in November, Pescara emerged with a shock 2-0 victory, but the Delfini had amassed only one point and four goals from their last 10 games.

The home side took the lead inside 20 minutes through a Yohan Benalouane header before Gabriel Paletta scored his first goal of the season in the 52nd minute to make it 2-0.

The third goal arrived on 65 minutes and in an extraordinary way.

Amauri chested a long ball down with his back to goal, and held off a defender to perform a spectacular bicycle kick that flew under the bar, leaving Ivan Pelizzoli rooted to the spot.


It was a golazo that brought to mind Rivaldo's bicycle kick against Valencia for Barcelona in 2001.
