Retegui drags Genoa, Udinese ko in Marassi

A reverse by Retegui and a header by Bani enabled Genoa to overcome Udinese 2-0 in the match valid for the 26th day of Serie A staged at the Ferraris. The Rossoblu returned to victory after three games without success and confirmed 12th place on 33 points, +13 from the relegation zone.

Udinese, currently 16th with three points ahead of Sassuolo and Verona, remains firm on 23 points.

Udinese started better and came close to taking the lead on two occasions, with Ehizibue and Lucca, who hit a crossbar on 24'. Genoa grows as the minutes go by and after the post hit by Vasquez at 32' it finds the 1-0 at 36' with a splendid reverse by Retegui on Martin’s cross. Four minutes pass and Bani doubled the score, a header off a free kick taken by Gudmundsson. A deadly one-two that decisively steers the challenge in favor of the Grifone.

Kristensen's expulsion at the beginning of the second half for double admonition put the game on the downhill slope for the hosts, who managed the lead without any particular qualms. Gilardino’s lineup came close to a hat trick on several occasions, but è inaccurate with Badelj, Frendrup and Gudmundsson. In the finale again Gudmundsson came close to making it 3-0, but again lacked accuracy at the moment of the shot.
