Gasperini’s men avoid fourth consecutive defeat in extremis

Two draws in the 2:30 p.m. matches valid for the 16th day of Serie A, the first after returning from the World Cup break in Qatar. Luca Gotti’s Spezia gets a comeback from Atalanta, which then manages to break the streak of three consecutive defeats suffered in the last days of 2022. Torino, on the other hand, thanks Miranchuk and in a comeback over Hellas Verona manages to win its first point of 2023.

At the Stadio Alberto Picco, great proof of the Ligurian formation that with two goals in the first half, scored by Gyasi and Nzola, put Gian Piero Gasperini’s men in great difficulty, who managed to come back thanks to the goal scored by Hojlund, who took over from the injured Duvan Zapata, in the 77th minute and the one in full recovery by Mario Pasalic who, like the Danish 2003, entered from the bench.

At the Grande Torino, on the other hand, the hosts, led by Ivan Juric, managed to snatch a draw from an enterprising Hellas Verona, which took the lead in the first half with Milan Djuric’s first goal in a Scaligera jersey and then reached by the former Atalanta man’s splendid left-footed shot. On the last ball of the match Lukic squandered an incredible chance on an empty exit by Montipò.
