Ghana forward Emmanuel Gyasi nets as Spezia beat Udinese to secure Serie A status

Ghana forward Emmanuel Gyasi netted for Spezia Calcio in their 3-2 win over Udinese on Saturday to secure their Serie A status.

Gyasi put up an impressive display to help his side seal a vital away victory at the Dacia Arena.

The visitors needed two points in the remaining two rounds to guarantee Serie A safety.

Udinese took the lead through Nahuel Molina in the 26th minute of the game but Salva Ferrer whipped in the cross to bagged the equaliser for Spezia.

The visitors turned it around completely in first half stoppages and again Ferrer was the provider, this time a sliding tackle to gain control from Pablo Marì and setting up Gyasi for a smart turn and finish from 12 yards.

After the recess, Spezia took full advantage by going 3-1 up. Verde got a low cross in from the left and Maggiore bundled over the line in two attempts, as Silvestri got something on the first.

Spezia had a penalty in stoppages but Manaj blasted it well over the bar.

This prompted a very late scare, because Udinese got one back when Deulofeu’s free kick was flicked in off the head of Pablo Marì but the visitors held on to secure all three points.

Gyasi has made 36 league appearances for Spezia this season and scored six goals in the process.
