Primavera: Bahlouli downs Palermo as Regini returns to action
Mohamed Bahlouli struck the winner as Sampdoria U19s saw off Palermo in the Primavera league on Saturday, in a match which saw Vasco Regini return to action after a long spell on the sidelines.
With Regini leading the backline, Simone Pavon’s side made a strong start to the game and took the lead midway though the half. Axel Campeol sent a high ball in towards the far post, where Bahlouli was on hand to head back into the opposite corner.
The Blucerchiati had several chances to double their advantage after the break but in the end one goal proved to be enough.
