Primavera rescue point in Paris

Baroni’s youngsters fight back from two goals down to snatch a draw in their final Next Generation Series Group 2 encounter

The Primavera staged a commendable comeback to rescue a draw from last night’s final Next Generation Series Group 2 encounter against Paris Saint-Germain.

Marco Baroni’s side were faced with a mountain to climb after first-half goals from Abdallah and Coman shot the French outfit into a two-goal lead.

But some choice words at the break turned the game on its head and the Bianconeri’s never say die attitude was rewarded when Beltrame halved the deficit on 78 minutes before Gerbaudo slotted home at the death to secure a respectable point.

The result sees the Primavera end the group stages in second place, with qualification already secure prior to last night’s clash in the French capital.
