Empoli 1 – 2 Juventus (PRIMAVERA)

16 Feb

After a terribly disappointing viareggio showing, coming soon after our exit from the coppa italia, it was time to get back to the business of winning.

Unfortunately the hosts took the lead in the 11th minute after a slip-up by Romagna at the back for Juve, allowing Frugoli to open the scoring.

Roussos almost drew us level when heading against the crossbar from the corner kick.

Still they came at us, with two chances well cut out by Mattiello. And then…our luck finally changed, with Konate given his marching orders after earning his second yellow for a lunch on Roussos. Down to ten men, but a goal up, the game was there for us to grab by the horns…

It didn’t take long in the second half for us to finally get on the score-sheet with up and coming greek star Donis leveling the match in the 48th minute. Within two minutes of the restart, Marzouk popped up to register his first strike since that memorable hatrick against Galatasaray in the Uefa Youth League on the 10th December.

The result, which it must be said did seem to hinge on the rather harsh red card for Konate, moves us up to third spot in the table…
