Sculli ran down the left side, his cross found Rocchi who beat the Union Ripa goalie.

Five minutes later, again a Sculli run on to Floccari, and in between three defenders Floccari found the net, 0-3.

Then 2 goals in 3 minutes. Konko running down the right side, cross to Mauri, control on his chest, volley and goal, 0-6.

Next minute, Brocchi finds Cissé running deep, a low shot of the Frenchman beating the Union Ripa goalie, the 0-7 and first goal for Cissé.
