WATCH: Alessandro Florenzi Scores From Near Halfway Line vs. Barcelona

With Barcelona in complete control early in their Champions League match with Roma, Italian midfielder Alessandro Florenzi uncorked this shot that went past Barcelona goalie Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

Florenzi crossed the halfway line, saw Ter Stegen was off his line and did the rest. The goal tied the match up at 1-1 in the 31st minute in the first meeting between the two clubs since 2001/02.

Florenzi, 24, has been capped nine times for Italy in his career. He’s been with Roma since he was 11-years-old and has made more than 100 appearances for the club.

It’s the second time Florenzi has come up with an absolute stunner. In 2014 he connected on a bicycle kick in Roma’s Serie A clash with Genoa.
