Final Score: Genoa 3-0 Cagliari

Genoa Player Ratings

Martinez (6): Times his exits well, thwarting crosses from the wings. Initiates plays from the back consistently.

Vogliacco (6.5): Starts brightly, appearing in Cagliari’s penalty area early on. His header early in the match goes wide.

De Winter (6.5): Growing in confidence at the heart of defence. Maintains composure despite early pressure from Shomurodov. A solid performance.

Vasquez (7): Faultless in defence, always dangerous when pushing forward into the opponent’s final third. Spots Frendrup in the box with precision, leading to the second goal. Substituted in the 74th minute (Cittadini, not given a rating).

Sabelli (7): A constant threat on the right flank. Consistently delivers crosses, one of which sets up Thorsby’s goal. Substituted in the 65th minute (Spence, 6), who enters the game with the right attitude when the result is secure.

Frendrup (7.5): Everywhere on the pitch. The Danish midfielder demonstrates his scoring prowess with the second goal.

Badelj (7): Leads the team with authority. Distributes the ball with quality. Spot Vasquez’s run in the build-up to Genoa’s second goal. Substituted in the 74th minute (Bohinen, not given a rating).

Thorsby (7.5): Deployed from the start to add presence and height in midfield. Repays the manager’s faith with a headed goal in under 20 minutes.

Martin (7): His left foot delivers dangerous crosses, such as the one for Vogliacco’s header in the first half. Provides defensive solidity while also pushing forward. Substituted in the 65th minute (Haps, 6), who performs solidly on the left without any issues.

Gudmundsson (7.5): Unstoppable for Cagliari’s defence. Scores the decisive goal, capitalizing on a defensive error.

Retegui (6.5): Active in attack, playing as a target man for his teammates. Unfortunate with his finish after receiving from Thorsby.

Alberto Gilardino (7.5): Praised once again by the fans who want him to stay on as manager for the next season. His Genoa dominates, securing three vital points to end the season positively.

Cagliari Player Ratings

Scuffet (6): Concedes two goals from the first shots on target, but little to fault on the third. Denies Thorsby a brace with a crucial save.

Chatzidiakos (5): Shows hesitancy in marking, allowing Thorsby to outleap him. Looks for redemption in set-pieces before being substituted. Replaced by Zappa (5.5) at half-time.

Wieteska (5.5): Called upon to lead an unfamiliar defensive trio in Mina’s absence, struggles to shoulder the responsibility.

Obert (5): Works to contain Retegui but arrives late for Genoa’s second goal and gifts Gudmundsson the third.

Di Pardo (5): Uncertain going forward and lacks focus in defence, particularly evident in the soft challenge for Genoa’s second goal. Replaced at half-time. Nandez (6) enters, showing resilience till the end.

Deiola (5.5): Few ideas amidst Genoa’s relentless pressure, struggles to match the intensity set by the opponents.

Prati (6): Attempts to bring order to the chaos in midfield, among the better performers on a challenging night, retaining some clarity amidst the confusion.

Augello (5.5): Some promising runs and accurate crosses, but struggles against Sabelli’s dominance on the flank. Replaced by Kingstone (not rated) in the 85th minute.

Oristanio (5): Sought after for vertical passes, but fails to make an impact. Substituted at half-time. Lapadula (5.5) takes his place, making runs but receiving little service.

Gaetano (5.5): Roams from the attacking midfield, occasionally shifts into a striker role but fails to trouble Martinez. Overlooked by Frendrup.

Shomurodov (5): In-form with three goals in six games, but contained easily by Genoa’s defence. Azzi (5.5) replaces him in the 73rd minute, showing early danger but failing to find the net.

Claudio Ranieri (5): Makes six changes from the previous game but fails to inspire a lacklustre Cagliari. Adapts to a back four but struggles to turn the tide.
