University soccer, draw for Luiss vs. Link University

  • 13 March 2023

In the third-last match of the round of the university championship on Wednesday, March 1, our boys grabbed a 2-2 draw against fourth-ranked Link University.

The match appeared from the very beginning to be very difficult. The opponents, in fact, are aggressive and handle the ball better, albeit without any scoring opportunities.
The second half continues in the same way, but this time the double advantage gained by Link is deserved. The two goals came first from a scramble on a corner kick, then with a splendid half-footed shot by the opposing center forward.
Coach Giovannetti then decided to change men and module, and the choice seemed to have its effects for Luiss. Ten minutes from the end Tamba, again him, draws and transforms a penalty kick. Then, in the last minute, a Ciampana free kick from the three-quarter line finds the head of Gatti, who anticipates the goalkeeper and, with Borrello’s decisive paw, we manage to equalize in extremis. The match looks like a real clash for direct access to the semifinals.

On Thursday, March 9, the Luiss University Football team will face the RomaTre team: this is the penultimate match, before the clash with the top-ranked Foro Italico.
