The goals for the team with the orange bibs came from El Shaarawy (2), Torres (2) and Gamarra. The black bibs meanwhile had Mbaye Niang to thank who scored both of the goals. Individuals: Riccardo Saponara did running drills while Ignazio Abate did runs over 50m.The players will now be given the weekend to rest by head coach Filippo Inzaghi.
