Three pre­cious points for Udi­nese

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Udi­nese new coach Luigi del Neri con­tin­ued his bright start in his new ad­ven­ture, as he helped Udi­nese claim their fourth win of the league with a 3-1 away win against Palermo at the Renzo Bar­bera Sta­dium.

This win meant that this was the sec­ond win in the three games, and also the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive win since del Neri took over after beat­ing Pescara last week. On the other side, Palermo con­tin­ued to dis­ap­point as they are still in the rel­e­ga­tion zone after 10 games, with the third con­sec­u­tive win.

It was Palermo who opened the score on the 10th minute thanks to a goal by the striker from Mace­do­nia Ilija Nestorovski.

Udi­nese’s re­ac­tion came with the equal­is­ing goal on the 34th minute through their main goal scorer Cyril Thea­rau.

Del Neri’s team took the lead on the 74th minute. It was a good run of about 40 me­tres by French man Seko Fo­fana who had the time and space to fire a shot from out­side the box in the left cor­ner of Posavec.

Palermo’s re­ac­tion wasn’t suc­cess­ful and this re­sulted in Udi­nese killing the game five min­utes later.

Udi­nese cleared a free-kick from the left and started a counter-at­tack from their own half. Seko Fo­fana re­ceived the fi­nal pass, and placed past Posavec.
