Six Nations 2021, Italy beat Scotland 43 to 3 and move up the rankings

Cardiff – Italy U20 beat teammates from Scotland 43-3 in a match valid for the third day of the U20 Six Nations, with a stellar performance from the team. A race without history with Brunello’s team that manages to enforce their game by scoring six goals (three in time) and achieving the first, crucial, breakthrough in the tournament.

Azzurrini got off to a good start and at 5′, from a stolen defensive touchline, managed to set up the action quickly and score with Vaccari, who took advantage of his momentum to unlock the result on the offensive right side . Ten minutes later the second blue mark follows with Pani, finalizing a personal initiative by Gacy, who crushes the oval near the positions providing Marin a comfortable change. Scotland shortened the distance in the 19th minute with a free kick from Scott, but moments later Marin hit the post to put the partial 15–3 in Azurini’s favor. Brunello’s team manage to impose their game and get their third goal of the match with 31′ Neculai who uses his physicality to overcome the Scottish defence. Marin realizes a free kick at the end of time that closes the first leg 23-3 for Italy.

After an unsuccessful free kick by Blue No. 10 in the 50th minute, the goal comes three minutes later – with an attached offensive bonus – by Captain Andreini who finalizes a fine move by Vacari on the right side of the attack. Italy’s good moment continues and between 57′ and 60′ there are two other goals with the Albanese first between 57′ and 60′ – who collects the oval to fly into a single goal – and the Spanish then who takes the partial to 40-3 . Scotland tries to attack, but is unable to find an opening in defense of Brunello’s team, which, with a free kick from newly entered Teneghi in the 74th minute, closes the match at 43–3, in the tournament. Gets the first win.
