Frosinone were held to a 2-2 draw at home against Genoa despite playing over half the match with a man advantage but one of their their goals was truly special.

Leonardo Pavoletti had given the visitors an early lead, but Leonard Blanchard and Mobido Diakite turned the match on its head before Genoa had Sebastian De Maio sent off.

Blanchard's goal was amazing. After a failed a bicycle kick, the ball somehow returned to the centre half as he lay on the flat of his back and his second bicycle was right on the money.

Watch below:

De Maio's 36th-minute red card did not prove fatal, though, as substitute Serge Gakpe struck with a close-range shot to earn Genoa a third successive draw.
