Player of the Match – Correa

The former forward’s arrival was met with questions this past week, but he went some way to silencing those who doubted his arrival in just over 15 minutes on the pitch at the Stadio Marc’Antonio Bentegodi. First scoring a fine header to win the match, he made sure of the points in stoppage time with a cool finish from range.
