Egypt’s Mohamed Salah got on the scoresheet for in their 4-0 win over Udinese on Saturday, in the capital club’s  opener.

Perroti, Dzeko and Salah secured their team’s first three points in an easy victory over Udinese.

The visitors’ defense held firm in the first interval; Dzeko, El-Shaarawy and Salah were denied opening goals before the half-time whistle sounded.

The second half was full of action, and saw the referee award Salah’s team two successive penalties, both of which were successfully converted by substitute Diego Perotti.

Salah’s pace earned the Giallorossi the second of their two spot kicks; Badu could only stop the Egyptian by bringing him down inside the area, prompting the referee to point to the spot.

Dzeko and Salah doubled their team’s lead in the last ten minutes of the game; the former made good use of Nainggolan’s pass to find the back of the net, while the latter scored the fourth goal from close range.

Spalletti’s team will take on FC Porto in the second leg of UEFA Champions League play-offs, a week after their 1-1 draw in Portugal.

Afterwards, the Giallorossi will travel to face Cagliari in their second Serie A game.
