Friendly: Genoa hold Nantes

Genoa earned a creditable 1-1 draw away to Ligue 1 side Nantes, with Lukas Lerager’s goal only cancelled out late on.

There was a very strange build-up to this game, because just before kick-off it was announced that Nantes Coach Vahid Halihodzic was going to resign and it was his final match.

Ionut Radu made an excellent early fingertip save to turn Charles Traore’s effort out from under the bar, then Sinan Gumus wasted a good opportunity on the counter.
