Jeison Murillo put Inter Milan ahead of Bologna in their Coppa Italia round-of-16 bout in sensational fashion, connecting for a perfect bicycle kick on Tuesday.

Murillo timed his connection off of Joao Mario's corner kick to perfection, powering a right-footed overhead effort in for the 1-0 lead in the 33rd minute. Inter added to its lead six minutes later, with Rodrigo Palacio scoring off another Joao Mario assist, though Bologna pulled one back off a goal from Montreal Impact-bound Blerim Dzemaili just before halftime.
