Leonardo Pavoletti marks birthday with Serie A goal

Leonardo Pavoletti of Cagliari Calcio celebrates with his teammates after scoring the 1-0 goal during the Serie A match between Cagliari Calcio and US Salernitana at Sardegna Arena on November 26, 2021 in Cagliari, Italy. 


Leonardo Pavoletti celebrated his 32nd birthday by scoring for Cagliari in a 1-1 draw with Salernitana in a match-up of the two last-placed teams in Serie A.

Pavoletti redirected a cross from Joao Pedro in the 73rd to put the home team in front.

The points appeared to be headed Cagliari's way until Federico Bonazzoli dampened the local mood with an equaliser for Salernitana in the 90th minute with a volley.
