Serie A Liveblog: Torino-Fiorentina, Monza-Roma, Udinese-Salernitana

{live, 17:38, Monza 0-1 Roma: Lorenzo Pellegrini!}

A goal out of nowhere. Cristante through ball, Lukaku while falling over manages to prod it into Pellegrini’s direction anyway, the captain rides a Birindelli tackle and manages to thread the finish through the eye of a needle into the far bottom corner!

{live, 17:37, Monza waste}

Colpani on the counter, has options, decides for reasons known only to himself to cut through the middle, realises this is a bad idea and goes down under a tiny nudge. Ref saw that coming.

{live, 17:34, Monza chance!}

Birindelli runs onto a long ball over the top from basically his own half, hits the low angled drive and it SKIMS the far post!

{live, 17:31, That Dybala offside}



Dopo un lungo intervento al Var, annullato il gol di #Cristante in #MonzaRoma per la posizione di #Dybala sul tiro di #Angelino

— (@calciomercatoit) March 2, 2024

{live, 17:29, Monza chance!}

First Colpani sprints down the right and wins a corner, then from that set play Valentin Carboni strike crucially blocked by Celik!

{live, 17:27, Interesting note}

Why that VAR check took so long – seems the Semi-Automatic Offside Technology is not working. They had to manually draw the lines.

{live, 17:26, Kristensen hobbles off}

He’s really done damage there, is holding his thigh as well as the ankle. Kristensen off, Celik on for Roma.

{live, 17:25, Yellow card}

Kristensen booked, injured himself in the process for tripping an opponent, and will be suspended against Fiorentina.

{live, 17:24, Paredes over}

Leandro Paredes blasts a free kick over the bar.

{live, 17:22, Monza sub}

Gagliardini still struggling after that shoulder injury early on, he makes way for Valentino Carboni.

{live, 17:21, DISALLOWED}

Evidently, there was an offside in there.

{live, 17:20, Loooooong VAR check}

It is for potential offside on Dybala straight after the corner.

{live, 17:18, Monza 0-1 Roma: Bryan Cristante!}

That was all Dybala! On the short corner, Dybala gets down the left, pulls it back from the by-line – possibly through a defender’s legs – and Cristante just has to side-foot it into the net from 14 yards!

{live, 17:17, Pablo Mari clearance!}

Great move from Roma, quick passing sends Lukaku down the left, he dinks the cross over Di Gregorio and Pablo Mari clears in the six yard box for a corner.

{live, 17:16, Djuric hits the post!}

But when Monza finally do beat the press, that’s what they can do! Cross from the right, Djuric header thumps the near post! On the resulting corner, Birindelli slips and still manages to get the shot on target, but straight at Svilar.

{live, 17:15, Roma very aggressive}

It’s a high press, Monza struggling to get out of their half.

{live, 17:12, Cristante misplaced pass}

Lukaku would’ve been through there if Cristante had placed the pass in the right way. He did not.

{live, 17:08, Di Gregorio save!}

What a goal that would’ve been! Pellegrini give and go with Lukaku, curler palmed out with Di Gregorio’s trailing hand!

{live, 17:08, Mancini milestone}

Congrats, Gianluca! #ASRoma

{live, 17:06, Roma chance}

Angelino cross deflected from the left, Cristante header is very close to the far top corner.

{live, 17:05, Not sure that’s wise}

Ndicka playing with wadding shoved up both nostrils. That is not a situation you want for very long.

{live, 17:04, Stopped again}

Gagliardini lands awkwardly on his shoulder and the medical staff are on again.

{live, 17:03, Ndicka back on his feet}

Getting some padding shoved up his nose, but otherwise seems ok.

{live, 17:01, Monza threaten}

Carboni cross into the box, Ndicka brave defending on Djuric to prevent the volley going in. Accidentally booted in the head in the process.

{live, 17:00, We have kick-off in Monza vs. Roma!}

{live, 16:39, Trouble at Salernitana}

Fabio Liverani reveals he asked Boulaye Dia to come on for the final 7-8 minutes against Udinese and the striker refused. “He is not a player we can rely on.”

{live, 16:37, Andrea Colpani (Monza)}

“It will be a very difficult match, as Roma are a strong team, so we expect it to be full of duels. Our attitude, characteristics and qualities must win out.”

{live, 16:36, Angelino (Roma)}

“The coach asks me to remain calm, show intensity and grit on the ball at all times.”

{live, 16:32, Weather report}

Raining in Monza. Circa 2,500 Roma fans have made the trip.

#Udinese 1-1 #Salernitana

Salernitana finally picked up a point thanks to the Loum Tchaouna curler, but could not defeat 10-man Udinese and the acrobatic Hassane Kamara bicycle-kick #UdineseSalernitana #SerieA #Calcio #SerieATIM

— Football Italia (@footballitalia) March 2, 2024

{live, 15:53, FT: Udinese 1-1 Salernitana}

What a chance to win it for Salernitana! They go on the counter from the corner, Candreva is visibly exhausted and fires over the bar!

{live, 15:53, Udinese end attacking}

Corner only grazes the head of Lucca, they win another corner at the other flag and that one is cleared.

{live, 15:50, Basic blasts over}

Into 4 minutes of stoppages.

{live, 15:48, Salernitana counter}

Salernitana counter-attack ends with a deflected Tchaouna header onto the side-netting.

{live, 15:46, Udinese again}

You cannot tell they are down to 10 men. Lucca just failed to get to the corner. Then Lovric blasts not too far over the bar.

{live, 15:45, Salernitana subs}

Sambia and Legowski on, Zanoli and Maggiore (who hurt his hamstring during that block) off

{live, 15:43, Udinese chance}

Corner kick finds Joao Ferreira, who turns and the shot is decisively charged down by Maggiore from six yards.

{live, 15:41, Coming up}


The Giallorossi have arrived! #ASRoma | #MonzaRoma

— AS Roma English (@ASRomaEN) March 2, 2024

{live, 15:40, Salernitana threaten}

Long passing move trying to find a gap, Basic effort deflected for a corner.

{live, 15:36, Bit of confusion}

Ref seemed to point to the spot for handball, but then realised Ikwuemesi had fouled the goalkeeper first.

{live, 15:34, Udinese sub}

Zemura replaces Kamara.

{live, 15:34, Walace booked}

He will be suspended for Udinese against Lazio.

{live, 15:31, Manolas injured}

Manolas might just have cramp, but either way he hobbles off to make way for Pasalidis. Coulibaly also replaced by Gomis.

{live, 15:30, Salernitana sub}

Weissman off, Ikwuemesi on.

{live, 15:29, Salernitana hit the woodwork!}

Candreva cross finds Tchaouna after a Giannetti error, but then thumps the near post!

{live, 15:25, Udinese sub}

Ehizibue on, Payero off

{live, 15:23, Red Card}

Festy Ebosele sent off for Udinese! It was late, he went in studs-up on Pellegrino, second yellow card. Ironically, he has to be carried off because he managed to hurt himself in the process.

{live, 15:20, Kamara miss!}

He scored such a stunning goal earlier, then messed up a chance like that! Thauvin inspired cross to the back post, Kamara had made the run and was unmarked – leaning back, prodded over.

{live, 15:16, Tchaouna chance}

Candreva sends Tchaouna through, but the angle is too narrow and he hits the side-netting. Should’ve passed that.

{live, 15:14, Thauvin again}

Lovely first touch to control the cross-field pass, then wins a corner, which is wasted.

{live, 15:11, So close}

Thauvin free kick skims the far post!

{live, 15:09, Pellegrino booked}

Pellegrino into the book for bringing down Lucca just outside the box, dangerous place for an Udinese free kick.

{live, 15:06, Giannetti booked}

Giannetti booked for going into a late tackle.

{live, 15:04, 2nd half kicks off: Udinese 1-1 Salernitana}

{live, 14:49, Half-Time: Udinese 1-1 Salernitana}

Two fantastic goals so far.

{live, 14:48, Udinese 1-1 Salernitana: Hassane Kamara!}

WHAT a goal. Thauvin cross from the left, spectacular Kamara bicycle kick from seven yards!

{live, 14:44, Ochoa alert}

Ochoa ready for the Lucca header. Coulibaly got another knock to that shoulder.

{live, 14:40, Another Udinese chance!}

Lucca was offside anyway, but he drilled inches wide too, Ochoa might’ve got a fingertip to that.

{live, 14:39, Udinese close!}

Magnificent Thauvin back-heel flick sends Lovric through, but the angled drive is across the face of goal! What a goal that would’ve been.

{live, 14:38, Udinese opportunity}

Cross from the left for Ebosele, whose header is charged down.

{live, 14:35, Booking}

Yellow card for Payero, who went flying arm-up into Candreva’s face.

{live, 14:32, Oh dear}

Weissman attempts a volley at the back post and saying he shinned that is an understatement.

{live, 14:29, Coulibaly hurt}

Salernitana midfielder Coulibaly landed badly on his shoulder, in pain and receiving treatment.

{live, 14:26, Udinese chance}

Lovric gathers a through ball, turns Pellegrino and hits the side-netting.

{live, 14:22, Tchaouna}


5 – Loum Tchaouna, September 2003, is the youngest player to have been involved in at least five goals in this #SerieA season (five, two goals and three assists). Revelation.#UdineseSalernitana

— OptaPaolo (@OptaPaolo) March 2, 2024

{live, 14:18, OCHOA!}

What a save from Ochoa! First the Ebosele ball across the face of goal goes past everyone, then it is put back in for Lucca’s first-time strike from six yards, Ochoa saves with his legs!

{live, 14:16, Cracking finish}


MAKE IT MAKE SENSE #UdineseSalernitana

— Lega Serie A (@SerieA_EN) March 2, 2024

{live, 14:15, Ebosele booked}

That went horribly wrong. He was in a promising attack down the right, stumbled over his own feet, tried to make up for it with a lunge – yellow card and suspension.

{live, 14:12, Udinese goal disallowed}

A very fortunate let-off for Salernitana, because Zanoli had bundled a Thauvin cross into his own net. However, Lucca was offside in the build-up.

{live, 14:10, Udinese 0-1 Salernitana: Loum Tchaouna!}

The first goal of the Fabio Liverani era and what a goal too! Earlier Tchaouna fired over with his weaker right foot, this is what he can do with his left. Cuts inside from the right and – with help from Zanoli’s run to create the space – curls a fabulous finish into the far top corner! The bend on that…

{live, 14:09, Udinese attempt}

On target from Kamara, but also straight at Ochoa.

{live, 14:07, Salernitana chance!}

Very close! Tchaouna right-foot curler just outside the box, not far over at all!

{live, 14:04, Udinese threaten}

Fantastic cross-field pass from Ebosele, Thauvin effort charged down and then Payero drills wide.

{live, 14:02, OK, apparently not}

Not an ideal start when Tchaouna and Walace have to be held apart as they are arguing after two minutes…

{live, 14:00, We have kick-off in Udinese vs. Salernitana!}

Here’s hoping for no controversy…

{live, 13:54, Udinese vs. Salernitana line-ups}

Udinese: Okoye; Joao Ferreira, Giannetti, Perez; Ebosele, Lovric, Walace, Payero, Kamara; Thauvin; Lucca
