Lombardi opened the scoring from distance after just 16 minutes and it wasn’t long before Crecco doubled the lead. Crecco managed to get on the end of Mamadou Tonkara’s cross to seal the victory in the first half.

In Group A, Juventus are keeping up the pressure on leaders Torino and second-placed Empoli after this weekend’s win against Modena.

  1. Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some
    guidance from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your
    own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast.

    I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not
    sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
