Andrea Pirlo is a bit of a set-piece taker extraordinaire, and he proved it yet again on Sunday in Juventus' Serie A finale vs. Cagliari.

The Italian midfielder opened the scoring in a 3-0 win with this brilliant free kick from distance, which has been listed as both an own goal and his goal. As you can see in the GIFs below, it hits the bar and bounces off the goalkeeper's back, the question being whether it crossed the line fully before careening back toward the keeper.

Either way, it's a heck of a strike.
