Alberto Malesani had a special dedication, but Attilio Tesser is left with regrets.
Genoa 1-0 Novara 
Genoa Coach Alberto Malesani: “We dedicate this victory to the city of Genoa and the victims of the recent floods. In all honesty, I wouldn’t have been happy with the draw, not even when we went down to 10 men.”
Novara Coach Attilio Tesser: “There are regrets, because we did more during the game than Genoa. Even a point would’ve frankly seemed a little unfair.”
