Chievo Verona striker Sergio Pellissier (at 39) scores in 16th consecutive season

Chievo Verona striker Sergio Pellissier did it again in defeat to AC Milan.

Aged 39 years and 178 day, Pellissier struck in the 3-1 loss - his 16th straight season on target.

It was his 109th goal in 443 Serie A appearances, but more importantly means Pellissier has scored at least once in each of his 16 top flight campaigns.

The first was in Chievo's 1-0 victory away to Parma all the way back on November 3, 2002, when he was only 23 years, six months and 22 days old. This goal also means that he is the sixth-oldest player to score in Italy's most prestigious tournament.

The oldest player to score in Serie A was Paolo Maldini at 39 years and 278 days in Milan's 2-1 win over Atalanta on March 30, 2008.
