Player statistic

This was a much anticipated game following our thrilling match earlier in the season which I edged with a late goal . With another 2 high scoring friendly draws recently a very even match was expected. 

It took just 6 minutes for Seattle to get on the scoresheet after a nice cross / cutback found Saivet in the box who made no mistake from 12 yards , Empoli had 2 defenders bumming each other nearby when it went in.

Both teams had plenty of shots in that first half but only a couple of them were on target ....  half chances at best. 

I never felt much danger at this stage of conceding an equaliser .... but that soon changed when Milik ran through unopposed to slot the ball past Rensing in the 48th minute.

For the next 15 minutes I was under the cosh and was in real danger of losing the game but gradually I gained a grip and began creating chances myself ... hitting the post around the 80th minute and Frei having a shot saved when clean through on the angle. Empoli had chances too but it looked like an honorable draw until one last attack from Seattle proved successful. Some neat midfield build up play moved them up the pitch when Montero slipped the ball through to Vietto , he held the defender off and smashed it into the corner ....  Scenes everywhere .....
