Valoti and Gytkjaer bring the Brianza back to success: 2-0 against Ascoli. White networks between the Tuscans and the Rondinelle (both overtaken by Stroppa), the draws between Cittadella and Perugia and between Vicenza and Crotone are “useless”
The second part of the 33rd day of B series see the Monza climb to third place thanks to the 2-0 home match against Ascoli: goals from Valoti and Gytkjaer. Overtaking the Pisastopped within friendly walls at 0-0 since Brescia (now fifth). In the area close to the playoffs, the Perugia he loses an excellent opportunity in Cittadella to get significantly closer to eighth Frosinone (0-0). Useless for both Vicenza and Crotone, in terms of salvation, the 1-1 of the Menti.
After the abrupt stop in Como, Monza resumes their race towards the Serie A dream and does so thanks to the success, already caught in the first half, at Brianteo against Ascoli. Brianzoli ahead at 16 ‘: Guarna opposes with a real prowess on the free kick kicked by Barberis, but on the rejection of the Juventus goalkeeper Valoti falls, which unlocks the match. Stroppa’s formation flies to 2-0 at half an hour: Botteghin hits Ciurria in his own penalty area and the referee can do nothing but grant the hosts the penalty, transformed by Gytkjaer. Given the double advantage, the match is so well managed by Monza, which overtakes Pisa in third position and always remains at -3 and -2 respectively by Cremonese first and by Lecce second.
PISA 0-0 BRESCIA
Fun match at the Garibaldi Arena, but in the end only the top three in the standings are celebrating, which now create a good gap on both Pisa fourth and Brescia fifth. Nicolas is overtaken with a great thrust of the kidneys and spits Aye’s precise header out of the mirror. Another guest opportunity in the 18 ‘: Moreo’s header is rejected and ends up in the parts of Aye again, who puts it back in the middle and finds Adorni, whose shot on the fly from a few steps ends high. The goalkeeper of Pisa, shortly before the end of the first half, flies and removes the ball from under the crossbar Cistana’s close right-footed shot. More aggressive Tuscans at the start of the second half: a slip by Pajac sends Puscas into the goal, but he is unable to overtake Joronen with a dribble. Chance not exploited by Moreo in the 63rd minute. Lucca is sent off with 7 ‘from the end but the score, however, is never released.
Opportunity wasted by Perugia (and, in part, also by the Cittadella) to get in touch with Frosinone, who occupy the last useful place to access the playoffs: the ciociari remain 3 points away from the team coached by Alvini. After an opportunity wasted by the Paduans with Laribi, who had presented himself all alone in front of the goalkeeper Chichizola, it is the Umbrians who touch the net in the 29th minute, when De Luca’s header finds the great reflection of Kastrati. The latter, at 60 ‘, comes out very badly; the ball reaches Matos who tries, but then finds the goalkeeper promptly rejected. Ring of the hosts in the 75th minute: violent conclusion with the left of Lores Varela and the ball touches the post. However, Chichizola’s parade on Del Fabbro’s aerial detachment in the final match is great. It ends 0-0 at the Tombolato.
Perhaps the final draw is more useful to Vicenza than to Crotone to hope not to relegate, but Lanerossi throws away in any case an excellent chance to break away in a decisive way at least towards the playout area. Veneti who take the lead in the 29th minute: on the development of a sharp corner kick beaten by Crecco, Schnegg is disturbed by Teodorczyk and bags into his own goal. The goalkeeper Festa saves with his knee on Diaw his teammates from capitulation, who then grab the same with Marras in the 40th minute: left-footed from the edge that leaves no chance for Grandi. Calabresi, however, who remain in ten men at the end of the first half: a second naive yellow card remedied by Schnegg after a foul committed against Maggio. Even in numerical inferiority, the Crotone pushes and touches the overtaking with Cangiano. He risks a lot with the sensational pole hit by Meggiorini from zero centimeters but still holds the 1-1 final.
Goal and show at the Tardini between Parma and Como: the crusaders win a fireworks match 4-3 thanks to a super Adrián Bernabé, who thwarts Gliozzi’s hat-trick for Gattuso. The hosts pass on 30 ‘: Vazquez sling on Man’s cross and beats Gori also thanks to the help of Vignali’s detour. At 61 ‘, however, the cold shower arrives for the Emilians: Gliozzi, who has entered a few minutes in place of La Gumina, collects Iovine’s vertical throw and bags. Six minutes later, the comeback arrives: Parigini runs off to the right and puts in the center again for Gliozzi, who scores a brace and 2-1. In the 77th minute, however, Bernabé replied, who signed the 2-2 directly on a free-kick with his left. Just four minutes pass and, still standing still, the Spaniard again beats Gori on a free-kick and scores the 3-2. At 85 ‘, Tutino scores from a few steps and seems to close the games, but at 91’ Oosterwolde knocks out Peli in the area and, from the spot, Gliozzi scores, signing the personal hat-trick. The final forcing of the guests, however, is useless: it ends 4-3, with Parma rising to 45 points and overtaking Como, at -1 and knocked out after two successes in a row.
