Udinese moved ahead courtesy of a fine striker’s goal from Antonio Floro Flores who collected the ball on the edge of the box, spun and struck a beauty past Frey. After the break the Viola drew level as Adrian Mutu cheekily chipped in a penalty after Gillardino was brought down in the box, and it wasn’t long before the turnaround was completed when Riccardo Montolivo put the hosts up 2-1 with his first goal of the season. Montolivo was quick in chalking up his second, cleaning up a poor clearance with a left foot strike. A minute later it was four when Gilardino got on the scoresheet, but in a frantic ending Comotto saw red with Di Natale converting the resulting spot-kick.
I friulani dominano il primo tempo dell’anticipo della 13ª ma segnano solo un gol con Floro Flores. I viola si trasformano nella ripresa e trovano il successo con le reti di Mutu su rigore, Montolivo (2) e Gilardino. Ininfluente il gol su rigore di Di Natale nel finale
