Chievo Coach Lorenzo D’Anna called Udinese goalkeeper Simone Scuffet Man of the Match. “He stopped us getting back into the game.”
The 2-0 result at the Stadio Bentegodi was decided by a Rodrigo De Paul scorcher and Kevin Lasagna counter-attack.
“It was a very even first half, while in the second we conceded a goal out of nowhere with that shot from 30 metres out just as we were pushing the hardest,” D’Anna told Rai Sport.
“We reacted well and created many chances, but unfortunately a combination of our mistakes and the excellent performance of the goalkeeper stopped us getting back into the game.
“Chievo put in the performance we needed to and a win would’ve shaken off this minus mark from our table, but we tried our best against a difficult side that countered dangerously.”
The Flying Donkeys were docked three points for false accounting, so are currently on -2 points in the Serie A table.
