Reggina eased past Nuova Cosenza in a 3-0 victory on Saturday at Stadio Oreste Granillo.

REG and NUO are 1st, (18 points) and 8th, (11 points), spots respectively, after 8 matches.

REG started the match strongly, when Rivas opened the rout, 9 minutes in. The first half ended 1-0.

REG started the second half with renewed vigour, when Ménez found the net, at 52 minutes. However they weren’t finished yet and Pierozzi made it 3-0 in the 62nd minute to make it 3-0.
