Strugglers Siena and Palermo draw 0-0 in Serie A

  •  

MILAN (AP) -Serie A strugglers Siena and Palermo played out a dull goalless draw on Saturday, in a clash between the league's bottom two clubs.

Both teams struggled to carve out goalscoring opportunities. Palermo fared the better in the second half but failed to score for the sixth time this season.

Siena's best chance came in the 28th minute as Francesco Bolzoni's 30-yard drive flew narrowly wide. In the buildup, Emanuele Calaio called for a penalty after being pushed by Palermo midfielder Massimo Donati.

Fabrizio Miccoli missed a glorious chance for Palermo. He beat the offside trap to collect a delightful through-ball from Donati but, one-on-one with onrushing Siena goalkeeper Gianluca Pegolo, he blazed over.

It was Siena coach Serse Cosmi's first match against Palermo since the Sicilian club sacked him after just four matches in charge.
