It’s a truly special weekend in Serie A, because both Hakan Calhanoglu and Juan Cuadrado have now scored directly from the corner flag.
These are very rare events in general, so having it happen twice in the same round is surely unheard of.
Calhanoglu curled in from the corner during Inter’s 3-0 victory away to Roma on Saturday.
Rui Patricio won’t be watching that one back… 😬

Just over 24 hours later, Cuadrado did the same for Juventus to open the scoring against Genoa in Turin.
