    Felice Tufano’s troops defeat Sassuolo 1-0 in Emilia-Romagna while Claudio Gabetta’s charges bow out at the quarter-final stage on penalties to Parma

    There were mixed fortunes for the Bianconeri’s youth academy over the weekend, with the Allievi Nazionali and Giovanissimi Nazionali both in action.

    After enduring a winless domestic steak which stretches back to January, Felice Tufano’s troops were able to defeat Sassuolo 1-0 in Emilia-Romagna thanks to striker Fabio Morselli’s goal on the half hour mark.

    With the Bianconeri's young guns now neck-and-neck alongside Torino at the top of the standings, they’ll want to steal a march on their arch-rivals when facing lowly Trapani in Vinovo on Sunday 8 March.

    Elsewhere, the Giovanissimi Nazionali’s Nike Premier Cup 2015 exploits came to an end following their quarter-final loss to Parma on Saturday.

    After securing triumphs over Monteruscello (5-0) and Atalanta (1-0) in the earlier rounds on Friday, Claudio Gabetta’s charges were pitted against the Crociati 24 hours later in Pescara with a semi-final place at stake.

    Despite Bioty Moise Kean bagging his fifth goal in three encounters to put Juventus in front, Andrea Adorante equalised for Parma before the Gialloblu progressed 5-3 on penalties.

    Gabetta’s Giovanissimi will look to get this tournament heartbreak out of their systems as attentions now turn to Sunday’s league trip away at Varese.
