Under 2-0 for the goals of Simeone and Barak, Ballardini’s team in the final goes to 3-2 with Criscito and the attacker’s brace. In full recovery, the Croatian’s header is worth the draw
Fireworks and six goals in anticipation of the Ferraris between Genoa and Verona (3-3 the final). It had to be the night of the party of the new American owners of the 777 Partners Griffin, who, before the kick-off, received the first applause under the northern steps, touched by the red and blue of 777 Partners after recovering from 0-2 to 3-2 , before Kalinic headed in full recovery gave the final equal to the Venetians, who thus won the fifth point in three Tudor-management games. Genoa paid in the first half for Ballardini’s few choices and an ineffective attitude in the median, where the team struggled a lot. Rossoblù renewed compared to Bologna: Ballardini renounces Vanheusden, Biraschi starts in the holder and in the middle outside Touré and inside Melegoni attacking midfielder in the now usual 4-2-3-1, with Kallon wide on the right and Farés on the opposite wing. Tudor has revolutionized the attack: out of Kalinic and Caprari, space for Lasagna and Simeone, the attacking couple supported by Barak in the 3-4-1-2 of Tudor.
The hosts start at a very high pace, go close to scoring with a left foot from Criscito (2 ‘), and crush Verona in their half of the pitch. But surprisingly Verona took the lead: at 8 ‘Simeone headed off high on the shoulders of Cambiaso at the edge of the small area), after Ilic had jumped Maksimovic on the right wing. The goal gives the Venetians wings, Genoa struggles to regroup, but Verona continues to push hard on the outside. Ballardini’s team is not convincing: Destro is too isolated, destroyed by himself fatigue. At 27 ‘Cambiaso kicks from a distance, but out of proportion. Barak in a disturbing action on the two Genoa medians slows down the red and blue counterattacks. Shortly after the half hour Ballardini passes to 5-3-2, lowering Fares and raising Kallon alongside Destro. But it changes little: Badelj (36 ‘) has the right ball from the edge, but kicking very badly.
Ballardini after the break, however, places Pandev to reinforce the attack (outside Cambiaso), with Behrami in the middle instead of an off Melegoni, but the rossoblùs collect the doubling host in the 3 ‘: naive Maksimovic, who hits Simeone from behind as soon as he arrives in the rossoblù area and after the penalty check Doveri assigns the penalty: Barak displaces Sirigu and scores two to zero. Genoa does not go and when he gets hurt Biraschi closes all the changes. Sirigu saves twice on Lasagna and Barak, then the race changes. Dawidowicz (30 ‘), who is naive, touches Pandev’s cross for Destro. Penalty, Criscito hits the mark and reopens the game: five minutes after a free kick from Rovella finds Destro who heads off very high and hits the center, the host defense is static. Two by two and rossoblù transformed. Again the attacker triggered by Pandev signs the 3-2 with a soft lob on the exit of Montipò. Very hot final, Verona is not there and at 46 ‘Kalinic on an assist from Casali from the right signs the final 3-3. What great fun.
