A tough match on the day of the Juventus club’s 125th birthday, fought to the end with several occasions on both sides. Nobody exploits and divided mail
On the day of its 125th birthday, with the president of the FIGC Gabriele Gravina, that of the Lega Paolo Del Pino and numerous former Juventus special guests, Udinese passes from the applause for the birthday to the boos for the 0-0 against Genoa. The match reflects the ranking of the two teams, Genoa at least gets the minimum goal of the first point with Shevchenko, Udinese instead is in sharp involution.
First half even more blocked than the second, with careful control in front of the area. Walace and Rovella try to shoot from medium and long range but Sirigu and Silvestri are not surprised. The only real opportunity comes in the 43rd minute: long pass for Ekuban, good stop to skip Samir, but when he arrives in front of Silevstri the Genoa striker kicks to the side.
Udinese hear the whistles already at the interval, an anticipation of what will happen at the end. Gotti changes his system after the break, from 3-4-2-1 to 4-2-3-1, with Samardzic as an attacking midfielder in place of a defender, Nuytinck. Pussetto had already replaced the injured Pereyra (collarbone knocked out), without improving the maneuver. A post from a shot by Beto deflected by Cambiaso is the great opportunity for the hosts, while Genoa could make better use of a counterattack by Ghiglione, whose shot was rejected by Sirigu. Andriy Shevchenko has numerous training problems: with seven absent including Destro and Caicedo, the Ukrainian technician in the 3-5-2 system Bianchi and Ekuban in front but the two, apart from the occasion described, fail to be dangerous. Sheva also tries with Pandev in the final, without success. At 93 ‘a goal by Udogie was canceled due to a clear offside: Udinese would not have deserved the success.
