Zappacosta grabbed the headlines after scoring from an incredible distance on the wing – although it looked more like it was meant as a cross.
Zappacosta’s team-mate Moses was watching from the bench as his full-back rival scored.
The sight clearly made the Nigerian fear for his starting place, as he was filmed holding his head in his hands, reports the Daily Star.
Willy Caballero and David Luiz – sitting alongside Moses – were also seen joking with the 26-year-old.
The Italian has now admitted the goal was a fluke and that he had actually intended it as a cross.
