Stijepovic cancels out Oviszach as U19s share spoils with Udinese
It was a game of two penalties as Sampdoria Under-19s came from behind to earn a point at Udinese.
The hosts made the better start and took the lead after 15 minutes when Oviszach converted from 12 yards after being fouled in the box.
The Blucerchiati battled back, though, and were awarded a penalty of their own when Udinese’s Zanolla caught the ball with his hand shortly after the hour mark. Montenegrin striker Stijepovic stepped up and slotted home to restore parity.
