A solitary strike from Emmanuel Gyasi has handed Spezia Calcio an important 1-0 win against Frosinone in the first-leg of the Serie B playoff.
The two clubs enjoyed a good campaign in the regular Serie B season and have managed to impress in the playoffs for promotion to the Serie A as well.
Today, the two teams locked horns at the Stadio Alberto Picco for the first leg of the playoff final.
A good game that ensued in the first half ended with a 21st-minute equalizer from Emmanuel Gyasi giving Spezia Calcio a deserved lead.
The 20-year old received a through ball from Giulio Maggiore in the Frosinone 18-yard box and fired an unstoppable shot into the back of the net after running past his marker.
Though the home team came in strong in the second half, they did not have enough to restore parity.
Eventually, Spezia emerged victorious and will head into the second leg of the Serie B play-off final on August 20, 2020, with an advantage.
