Isaac Success fires Udinese into Coppa Italia round of 16


Udinese striker Isaac Success put the disappoint of his sending off against AC Milan last weekend behind him as he inspired his side’s Coppa Italia victory against Crotone on Tuesday.

Success, who had just come off the bench, was shown a straight red card for a rash challenge in the dying moments of the 1-1 draw against Milan.
However, on Tuesday back at the Dacia Arena, he redeemed himself before the home fans, creating two goals including the opening goal and also converted a spot kick to inspire his side to a 4-0 win against the Serie B strugglers.
The hosts were rampant, opening a 3-0 lead after forty-one minutes. He set up Ignacio Pussetto for the first goal (20′), before Sebastine De Maio doubled for the hosts.
Success then made it three dispatching his penalty with aplomb to put some daylight in the contest.
In the second-half, the 25 year-old Nigeria turned provider again for Pussetto in the 62nd minute for what was the final goal of the game.
Udinese progressed to the round of 16 where they’ll face SS Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico in a game scheduled for January 2022.
Meanwhile, Venezia are also through to the round of the 16, but were without their Nigerian imports, Tyronne Ebuehi and David Okereke.
Venezia will play guests to Atalanta in the next round of the Coppa Italia.
