Blessin’s team wastes many opportunities, but rejoices at the triple whistle. She qualified for the round of 16. Second consecutive defeat for the former Giallorossi on the bench
Genoa arrives in the first knockout round of the Italian Cup, whose fans celebrated the presence in the stands of honor of the Prince Milito. Thus the dream of Daniele De Rossi, in the second match on the Spal bench, of being able to challenge his Roma as an opponent fades. The challenge was decided by a penalty by Gudmundsson in the 46th minute of the first half, assigned for a hand ball by Moncini on Portanova’s header, whose position required a Var check (which lasted over three minutes) on the possible offside of the midfielder.
The first half, however, played at a good pace, but with few scoring chances. Too much imprecision from the trocar forward, with the rossoblùs more proactive, even if before the penalty the best chance had happened in the 20 ‘to Almici who, on the edge of the small area, missed Dickmann’s touch on the net on a diagonal. Two teams profoundly revolutionized compared to the championship and obviously the game was affected, even if the guests showed a good dribble, a sign that De Rossi’s teachings are starting to work. In the second half, Blessin’s men managed the advantage without worries, with the Icelandic Griffin close to doubling. In the final, Genoa touched the goal again with Puscas and Yalcin. The only really sore point is the pitch, in very bad conditions after yesterday’s Sampdoria-Roma match. On Thursday, for the Sampdoria’s Coppa Italia match against Ascoli, the result is likely to be even worse.
