Genoa’s situation, however, remained unchanged.

After a dull first half, in which only two dangerous chances were recorded, the second half offered a totally different match.

The surprises don’t end here, and in the 69th minute, it is Zappa who seals the seal that will be worth the final victory, taking advantage of Petagna’s precise through ball and finishing into the right corner. The 2-1 goal was followed by a portion of the match characterized by high competitiveness, many fouls, and numerous yellow cards. The match at the Sardegna Arena ends after a copious 8′ recovery, with Casteddu winning against the Grifoni.
