Video: A sublime chip and an absolutely sensational volley from Serie A demand your attention
Take your pick from these two Christmas crackers that were scored in Serie A...
Whenever JOE has to pull a Christmas cracker after our dinner we're always slightly disappointed because we usually are treated to some awful joke and rubbish present like a pencil sharpener or dice.
Seriously, who ever uses dice?
We would much prefer to be get small pieces of paper that contain a few website links to some cracking goals like these ones that were scored in Serie A over the weekend.
Atalanta's highly entertaining draw with Palermo was arguably the game of the weekend in Italy as Franco Vazquez scored a brace for the visitors.
This 25-yard chip was definitely the attacking midfielders best because we love the fact that it just gently clips the underside of the bar before going in.
Chip, chip, hooray!

As brilliant as that finish is it still doesn't get the golazo award of the weekend because that goes to Inter Milan's Mateo Kovacic who scored with this sensational volley in their 2-2 draw with Lazio.
The technique involved in this strike is stunning.
