    An inspirational Anastasios Donis scores one and creates a second as the Bianconeri gain all three points in this afternoon’s 2-1 triumph in Vinovo

    The Primavera warmed up for Tuesday’s European Youth League opener against FC Copenhagen with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over early pace-setters Empoli in their third championship fixture of the season.

    At the heart of this afternoon’s success in Vinovo was Greek youngster Anastasios Donis, who opened the scoring with a magnificent right-footed shot on the turn before earning the penalty that would eventually secure all three points, dispatched with confidence by Simone Emmanuello.

    Andrea Zanchetta’s youngsters will now embark on Tuesday’s European adventure with plenty of confidence after passing a tough test with flying colours.

    And the tests will continue to come thick and fast after Copenhagen as next Saturday’s inter-city derby against Torino is swiftly followed by the Super Cup final against Lazio on Thursday 26 September.
