Rafael Leao scores quickest ever Serie A goal to spark AC Milan victory

AC Milan returned to winning ways on Sunday with a 2-1 victory away at Sassuolo, a result that follows two draws in a row and that means Stefano Pioli's are top of the table.

Their afternoon got off to the perfect start as Rafael Leao scored just six seconds into the game. Hakan Calhanoglu drove forward straight from the kick off and then played a pass through for Leao to finish.

This is the quickest ever goal in a Serie A game, with Leao moving ahead of Piacenza's Paolo Poggi's goal after eight seconds in a match against Fiorentina in 2001.

Leao then set up Calhanoglu for a goal of his own 10 minutes, but that was ruled out for an offside in the build-up after a VAR review.

But, the next goal arrived before long, as Alexis Saelemaekers scored AC Milan's second of the afternoon in the 26th minute on a counter attack.

Sassuolo had chances in the second half, but it took until the 89th minute for them to take one. Domenico Berardi scored a deflected freekick to pull one goal back, but it was too little too late against a team that did so much so early.
