Juventus 3 – 3 Sassuolo PRIMAVERA

2 Apr

Vykintas Slivka – The hero of last week become the villain of today. Continued his scoring run with his second in two matches, but followed it up with a headbutt and straight red. Amusing and certainly the sign of a strong will, but it didn’t help our cause.

Vanucchi

Tavanti Varga Pellizzarri Barlocco

Gerbaudo (Ceria 80′) Kabashi (Cevallos 67′) Sakor Alivka

Soumah (Roussos 57′) Donis

Scorers-

Slivka 18′ , Donis 22′, Sakor 52′

A topsy turvy game saw us fall behind as early at the 5th minute, with Slivka pulling us even in the 18th minute. Unfortunately Vanucchi soon turned the tie in our opponents favour with a haphazard own goal…

The see-saw nature of the match continued, with Donis scoring his tenth league goal of the season on 22 minutes to once again bring parity. Disaster struck early in the 2nd half with Slivka expelled for a filthy challenge on an opponent’s rib-cage. Which didn’t stop our midfield dynamo Vajebah Sakor driving forward and scoring his first of the league campaign to put us in the lead at 3-2.

Vajebah Sakor – Finally showing some solid form after been moved to his favoured regista role at the base of midfield.

Already down to ten men, Tavanti was also given his marching orders with 56 minutes on the clock, leaving us facing a testing final half hour. Bringing on three fresh strikers gave Sassuolo the impetus required and they broke our resolve on 74′. The game petered out to a draw.

Entertaining, yet the draw sees us drop down to 3rd place in the table, on equal points with second placed Sampdoria, but with a far inferior goal difference. Next up on the fixture list is a visit to bottom placed Modena, where surely we will pick up a much needed victory. With four games left to play until the finals (Modena A, Siena H, Sampdoria A, Novara H) we really need to be picking up momentum, aiming for the automatic qualification to the knockout competition and hoping to bring some success to an otherwise hugely disappointing season.
