Watch: Atalanta's German Denis hammers home bicycle kick

Sunday April 12th, 2015

German Denis converted an incredible bicycle kick in the 42nd minute of Atalanta's 2-1 win over Sassuolo at the Azzurri d'Italia in Serie A play on Sunday.

Just as impressive as the Argentine's acrobatic finish was the buildup leading to it. A cheeky backheel by Luca Cigarini found Maximiliano Moralez, who flicked it on to Denis for the final piece of brilliance, which gave Atalanta a 1-0 lead.

Domenico Berardi equalized for Sassuolo in the 59th, but Denis would strike again in the 63rd, converting a penalty and ultimately sealing the win for La Dea.
