Francesco Totti scored his 210th and 211th Serie A goals within the first eight minutes of Roma's 5-1 win over Cesena, making him the league's all-time leader in goals scored for a single club. Totti's first of the match was set up by a backheel from Erik Lamela and froze Cesena goalkeeper Francesco Antonioli as it snuck inside the near post.
Totti's second was a volley inside the box that was again set up by Lamela and gave Antonioli little chance of saving it. After the match, Totti had a special dedication for his historic goals (via Football Italia):
"I want to dedicate them to my sister-in-law, who gave birth two days ago, and to the victims of the Costa Concordia [cruise ship] disaster."
Totti surpassed Swedish great Gunnar Nordahl, who scored 210 goals for Milan between 1949 and 1956 before finishing his career with Roma. However, he has yet to surpass the infinite number of goals Zlatan Ibrahimovic believes he's scored for each Serie A club with which he's been.
