Following a first cap with Italy in mid-November, Pietro Pellegri came very close to scoring his first goal this season during the last match against Nîmes Olympique. Unfortunately, Les Crocos‘ goalkeeper had other ideas, making an almost miraculous stop on a diving header. But yesterday, in Lille, Mike Maignan could not do anything against the Italian striker.

On a ball over the top by Cesc Fabregas in behind Les Dogues‘ defense of the Mastiffs, Pietro Pellegri beat Domagoj Bradaric on a one-on-one to open the way to the goal thanks to an excellent bit of chest control. The sequence that followed was perfect for the Italian international who turned the Lille goalkeeper and slipped the ball in at the far post. It was also a goal scored with his left foot, as against Girondins de Bordeaux in August 2018, even though he is right-footed.
For his seventh appearance of the season, Pietro Pellegri, who replaced Aurélien Tchouameni in the 69th minute of play, is your IQONIQ MVP of this match away to LOSC.
