Even for a rapid player like Rafael Leao, this is fast.

The AC Milan forward scored 6.2 seconds off the opening kickoff at Sassuolo on Sunday, the fastest goal in Serie A history.

It came in a 2-1 win over Sassuolo that keeps Milan atop the table. Alexis Saelemaekers also scored for Milan before Domenico Berardi pulled one back in the 89th minute.

The kickoff is touched to Hakan Calhanoglu, who dribbles into the heart of the Sassuolo half and lays a pass through several bodies to Leao.

A few strides later, it’s 1-0.

Leao, 21, now has three league goals this season to go with three assists. He has nine Serie A goals in his two seasons since arriving from Lille.
