UDINE. Spezia wins 3-2 at Udinese, hitting mathematical salvation one day early. In Friuli the goals of Verde, Gyasi and Maggiore decide after Molina’s initial advantage; in the final Manaj also misses the possible penalty of poker, just before the useless goal from Pablo Marì: Thiago Motta’s team thus rises to +7 on the relegation zone, securing the last 90 minutes of the season in total tranquility against Napoli.
Ko bitter, but still painless for Cioffi’s team. A lot of initiative at the start on the part of the Ligurians, who at 9 ‘touched the advantage with Agudelo rejected very well by an attentive Silvestri. The hosts, little by little, put out their noses and in the 26th minute they took the lead thanks to Molina’s magnificent southpaw, just a few moments after Provedel’s save on Udogie’s header.
Ten minutes passed and the guests evened their scores with Verde, who was good at hitting the perfect cross from the left from Ferrer, who had just entered the place of the injured Reca. At the last available second of the first half, La Spezia’s 2-1 by Gyasi also arrives, good at taming Ferrer’s second assist with a ‘roulette and throwing the Ligurian advantage into the net.
At the opening of the second half, the guests continue to press on the wings of enthusiasm and in the 47th minute they find the trio with Maggiore, who in front of goal cannot make a mistake on Green’s cross. Udinese does not give the feeling of being able to reopen the match, finding very few spaces between the opposing lines; only in the final did Molina waste a great double opportunity in the space of a couple of seconds.
In the recovery Spezia could complete the party with a penalty from Manaj, but the attacker kicks to the stars from the spot by failing the poker, just a few moments before the useless seal of Pablo Marì.
