It ended in equality the challenge between Florentine And Udineseone point each which is useful to the viola to consolidate the fourth place after taking a big risk, and it helps Friulians to hook the Cagliari and detach the Verona third to last.

The team of Cioffi but he wasted one great opportunity to conquer the Franks and conquer the third seasonal victory: twice ahead, in the first half with Lovricin the second half with Thauvin as soon as he entered, he always let someone pick him up Florentine who appeared in difficulty in the first part of the match: if she didn’t suffer the second knockout in a row after the one a week ago a Sassuolo this time he has to thank his two center forwards who often end up in the crosshairs of criticism, Beltran he headed the goal for the momentary 1-1, Nzola (substituted in the second half) was precise and cold on the ball rigor awarded by the referee Nickel (after the warning to the monitor) for an obvious handball by Ferreira on the shot of Beltran. In the convulsive ending Success he failed the possible three of a kind Bonaventure hit the post.

Awarded at the start of the match by Serie A League as best coach of December, Vincenzo Italiano he showed up with Beltran central tip supported by Ikoné-Bonaventura-Brekalo.

On defense out Milenkovic which was preferred Ranieri. Initially excluded Arthurin its place Mandrake. As for Cioffi he raised in surprise Samardzic at the center of transfer rumors for some time, together with him Pereyra And Ebosele in support of Luccawhile in the median space a Lovric And Walacebetween the posts confirmation of Okoye. A’Udinese well placed on the field so much so that they managed to pass after ten minutes thanks to a quick restart started by Lucca and finished by Lovric than in one to one with Ranieri he started an uncatchable razor for Terracciano. The advantage gave the Friulians even more conviction also because the Florentine appeared to be in difficulty: the first real attempt on goal was at the end of the half, with Ikoné who messed up in front of the goal, otherwise only a few crosses which mostly ended up prey to the opposing defenders. L’Udinese with his determination and physicality, before the break, he came close to doubling the lead on at least three other occasions, always neutralized by Terracciano:He tried first LuccaThen PereyraTherefore Samardzic on punishment.

Too many dangers that pushed Italian in the restart to change: inside Arthur to give quality (out Duncan) and the new purchase Pharaohs to replace a tired one Kayode. And right from the feet of the former captain of Verona the cross started Beltran he headed it into the net. The draw gave energy to the team Florentine and this pushed Cioffi to introduce fresh forces: Heyzibue, Success And Thauvin For Ebosele, Lucca And Samardzic.

L’Udinese she revived and started pushing again, coming close to scoring Thauvin on punishment (Terracciano he saved himself thanks also to the post) until he took the lead again, always with the French attacker ready to take the suggestion of Lovric and to mock the defenseless opposing defense. At this point Italian he played the double center forward card by taking away Brekalowhistled, to insert Nzola: a good move given that the former player of Spice, who hadn’t scored in Serie A since the end of October, equalized from a penalty. Avoided the knockout, tomorrow i viola they will start from Bologna For Riad to concentrate on Super Cup.
