Zielinski rescues Udinese draw

Udinese earned a 1-1 draw with Azerbaijan club FC Baku thanks to a splendid goal from Piotr Zielinski.

The Friulani only played against QPR on Saturday, securing a 2-1 victory, but were back in action this afternoon.

Francesco Guidolin opted for a 4-3-2-1 system instead and the experiment initially worked well with chances for Naldo, Bruno Fernandes and Matias Ranegie.

However, Baku opened the scoring with a Huseynov angled drive after 32 minutes.

Polish teenage talent Zielinski got Udinese back on level terms with an extraordinary curler from 20 metres out that flew into the top corner.
