(EFE) – A double by Argentine Rodrigo De Paul, who ended up expelled in the last minute, gave Udinese a 2-1 victory this Saturday at bottom Crotone and returned all three points after three consecutive defeats.
De Paul, who starts with his compatriots Juan Musso, Nahuel Molina and Roberto Pereyra, reached eight goals this season and was confirmed intractable as a visitor. In fact, nine of his last eleven goals, if you also count last season, came away from the Dacia Arena in Udine.
The Argentine international made an excellent performance. He opened the scoring at 40, after a rebound in the area, and, after a momentary 1-1 penalty from Nigerian Nwankwo Simy, scored the 2-1 with a good right-footed shot from the second post.
His day was partially spoiled in 1990, when he was sent off after VAR control for a shoe on Salvatore Molina.
Udinese, in which Spaniard Fernando Llorente spent 90 minutes on the bench, once again celebrated a victory a month and a half after the last time.
He was placed eleventh, with 36 points, already almost certain of salvation.
Only mathematics saves Crotone, bottom and separated by twelve points from the permanence zone, and with two more games.
