Andrea Soncin’s Primavera extended their positive streak and came away with a point in a 1-1 draw against an undefeated and top of the table Genoa on Saturday afternoon at Centro Sportivo Taliercio.

The hosts went in front in the 29th minute with Lorenzo Da Pozzo, who played an impressive one-two with Jack De Vries and beat the goalkeeper at the near post with a shot from inside the box. A well-earned lead for Venezia, who were the dominant side in the first half, and came close to doubling their lead first with a lob from Alvin Okoro that went off the crossbar, and then with Amin Boudri, whose effort was cleared by the defense.

After the break, there was a change in pace for Genoa, but Venezia responded on the counter, with Tommaso Sperandio being called into action just once. On one occasion, Boudri was able to dribble two opponents with an impressive play in between the lines, forcing a remarkable save from the Ligurian ‘keeper.

In the closing minutes of the match, Genoa were able to rescue a point, with Federico Accornero splitting Venezia’s defense and delivering the late equalizer for the visitors in the 91st minute.

Venezia will return to action on January 28th, to start the second half of the season with the derby against Padova.
