The challenge between Udinese-SPAL has just ended. Spectacular game with a crazy ending, but in the end the score is 0-0
INITIAL CHOICES – In Friuli, with Gotti on the bench, there is the Nestorovski-Okaka couple in front. Slightly backward De Paul, with Mandragora in the middle of the field making wood. Mister Semplici, surprisingly, left Petagna outside and from the first minute lined up the pair composed by Paloschi and Floccari. In the control room there is Valdifiori, on the wings Strefezza and Reca.
FIRST FUN TIME, BUT WITHOUT A GOAL – The game is played immediately at a high pace. When about 10 minutes of play have passed, Nestrovski finds the goal by the head but the referee cancels the former Palermo for an irregular position. After the fright, the SPAL is often seen from the parts of Musso. First Floccari tries, but his chance is deflected by Nuytinck, then it's up to Musso to take the scene on Kurtic's close-range header. Udinese responds with a double opportunity for Mandragora. Shortly after the half hour comes the biggest opportunity of the challenge: Ken Sema escapes on the wing, enters the area and serves as De Paul trailer. Conclusion on the fly that is diverted into a corner. Strefezza tries to overturn in front, but the ball goes high over the crossbar.
DOMINIO UDINESE AT THE BEGINNING OF RECOVERY – Gotti's team returns to the field with the turbo inserted. The bianconeri take the game ball in hand and begin to grind occasions on occasions. The most tempting, for a change, is still for Rodrigo De Paul. Berisha loses the ball, Okaka takes advantage of it and serves the Argentine at the edge of the area: the conclusion of the number 10 is very close.
ENTER LASAGNA, UDINESE EVEN MORE DANGEROUS – In the second half Gotti plays the Lasagna card instead of Nestorovski and the striker, just entered, immediately becomes dangerous. De Paul's break which he pockets for Lasagna: the Friulian striker looks for Okaka in the small area, an extraordinary save for Tomovic, who takes the ball away before the opponent can tap-in.
LAMPO SPAL IN THE FINAL – When the whistle is less than 10 minutes short, the SPAL creates its best chance. Sala escapes on the wing, puts a cross in the middle for one between Petagna and Floccari but Musso is very good and low out anticipates all.
INCREDIBLE FINAL, PENALTY FOR THE SPAL IN FULL RECOVERY – When the game seemed over by now, the unbelievable happens. The referee is called back to the VAR to evaluate a possible hand touch by Ken Sema in the area. Massa goes to review the action and assigns the penalty kick to the SPAL.
PETAGNA MAKES YOU A MUSSO – Petagna appears from the spot, but Musso exceeds and takes the penalty kick. He is the hero of the day at the Dacia Arena, with the goalkeeper brought by his teammates under the curve to receive the well-deserved ovation.
