Matteo Mancosu strike earns point for Carpi

Matteo Mancosu's second-half penalty saw Carpi snatch a 1-1 draw against Palermo at the Stadio Alberto Braglia.
The hosts began brightly but went behind in the 24th minute as Oscar Hiljemark's pass found Alberto Gilardino free in the Carpi box before slotting home. The former Italy international reached 184 Serie A goals, equalling Gabriel Batistuta for 13th on the Serie A all-time scoring list.
Carpi pushed forward in numbers and got their reward in the second-half as Mancosu was fouled in the Palermo box 15 minutes from time. The Romanian stepped and sent Stefano Sorrentino the wrong way as Fabrizio Castori's side stretched their unbeaten run to five games.
