What a great match: Genoa-Cagliari 5-3

Giuseppe Sculli celebrates his goal against Cagliari

After the 3-4 defeat against Bologna 2 weeks ago again a fantastic spectacular game in Luigi Ferraris. This time also with our team as winner. Genoa played without a central forward because both Acquafresca and Suazo were injured, so the 3 wingstrikers: Palacio, Sculli and Palladino formed the attack. After Genoa hit twice the post and once the crossbar, Cagliari had opened the score with an irregular goal because the ball first was out of the field before Dessena scored, finally in the 36th minute our first goal arrived. It was Alberto Zapater who scored the penalty after Palacio was fouled. Within 8 minutes Genoa scored another 3 times by Palacio, Sculli and Rossi while also Conti of Cagliari scored, so the score at halftime was 4-2.

In the second half Cagliari opened the score again by a penalty of Matri after a foul of Bocchetti. Only 5 minutes later Omar Milanetto decided the match by realizing a great assist of Palacio: 5-3. Genoa is now 7th in the standings with 42 points, so we are back in the Europa League-zone. Saturday we play at 18.00 hours in Florence.
