Highlights: Crotone 0-2 Cagliari

Cagliari achieved the ideal start under new coach Leonardo Semplici, as Leonardo Pavoletti scored and then won a penalty in this six-pointer with Crotone.

The Sardinians had not managed a Serie A victory since November 7 and it looked tough for them at the Stadio Scida with a poor first half.

However, Pavoletti rose to nod in a Charalampos Lykogiannis cross floated to the back post, then was nudged from behind by Lisandro Magallan for a penalty, converted by Joao Pedro.

Charalampos received his second yellow card, but Adam Ounas saw his curler thump the woodwork and Alessio Cragno made a late save on Pedro Pereira’s free kick.
