The south-coast club may have lost 1-0 but, in truth, they really should have got a draw at least out of the game as they hammered on the Nerazzurri’s door but couldn’t find a breakthrough.
You’d think, then, that a performance similar to that would see the club record a great victory over the Serie A side, particularly with them continuing to struggle this season.
