Comments:

- The telling moment is when Simone beats his man and attacks the fullback who has to come across to cover. This creates space allows Giuly to receive the pass unhindered.
- The other important factor is Gallardo who is more or less at the origin of the move supports the attack and finds space to finish.

 
Conclusions:
- Good all-round Support Play.
- Ability to run at defences.
- First-time accurate cross.
