Udinese Vs. Palermo, 2011 Serie A: Antonio Di Natale (Who Else) Gives Udinese The Lead At Halftime

It was shaping up to be another Sunday short on goals in Serie A, with only German Denis having scored for Atalanta. But then Rodney Strasser put one in for Lecce, and minutes later, it was Antonio Di Natale scoring, once again, for Udinese. Toto was the league leader in goals scored last season, and he's campaigning for the title for a third year in a row, having already scored seven.

Just moments before, Di Natale had managed to put the ball into the Palermo net, but it was called back for offside. Dusan Basta, who'd scuffed a perfect chance earlier in the match, sent the cross in from the right side for Toto to spring forward. While it first looked like this, too, would be offside, Di Natale was perfectly even with Eros Pisano, and the goal stood.

The Udinese captain almost added a second just five minutes later. Unfortunately for the home side, his chipped effort went just wide of Alexandros Tzorvas's goal.
