An Emmanuel Gyasi assist to set up Andrey Galabinov to score has proven crucial to help Spezia Calcio cruise to a 2-0 win against Udinese in the Italian Serie A.
The Serie A newcomers are tasting top-flight football for the first time in the history of the club having gained promotion at the end of the 2019/2020 football season.
In the team’s debut game last Sunday, they had a decent start but had to succumb to a 4-1 defeat at the hands of Sassuolo.
Determined to pick up 3 points today, Spezia Calcio manager Vincenzo Italiano set up strong with a line-up that had Ghanaian winger Emmanuel Gyasi in the attack.
The winger upped his game and assisted Andrey Galabinov for his team’s opening goal of the game on the 29th minute.
With that equalizer pegging Udinese at the break, the home team will be handed a boost in the second half when Spezia Calcio’s Claudio Terzi was red-carded for a second booking.
Two minutes later, Emmanuel Gyasi was substituted for Martin Erlic to ensure the visitors had enough men behind the ball to contain the disadvantage in personnel.
Leaving the pitch of the Dacia Arena, the winger merited a good rating of 7.0 from Modernghana Sports partners SofaScore for his impressive displays in the first half.

The win becomes the team’s first in the history of the Italian Serie A and they will be booming with confidence ahead of their clash against AC Milan on Sunday.
