The black and whites come back from Pomigliano and thank the post in the final, while the leaders need a penalty to overcome Parma bottom in the standings. Only equal for the Nerazzurri
In the three previous matches against Juventus in Serie A, Pomigliano had always lost without ever scoring a goal. A real taboo, dispelled around 12:30 today: Salvai jams with the ball at his feet and has it stolen by Ferrario, very good at beating Aprile with a “Tottian” lob from the edge of the area. Merit of a technique refined in futsal. Not bad to score the first goal of his career in Serie A, at the age of 29 and against the team that has won the last five league titles. It seemed like another grown-up afternoon for the bells, who had won four of the last seven games played, as many as those obtained in the previous 21 days. A clear path, which explains the sixth place in the standings immediately behind the big ones. In the end, however, Juventus reacted. It won’t be unbeatable like in previous years (it has already drawn four games when, in the previous five seasons, it had happened to him just six times) and in the first 13 days it had never happened to collect “only” 28 points. But it is precisely the black and white women who give President Ferrero the first success of his management.
Cantore equalized the initial advantage of Pomigliano who, just 3′ later, took advantage of goalkeeper Cetinja’s mistake and from two steps repeated the fourth goal of his championship on goal (the attacker, who had already left the sign, it hadn’t marked since mid-October). The class of 1999, who returned to Turin last summer, has struggled to find space up to now (only 6 games as a starter) after the excellent seasons with Florenzia and Sassuolo. He who knows that this may not be a new beginning. Beerensteyn, on the other hand, does nothing but confirm himself: in the 59th minute Grosso scores a great ball for the insertion of the midfielder, who thus scores the tenth goal of the season. Just what the directors expected when they decided to bet on her last summer, making her the first Dutch player in the club’s history. He was the first purchase of the transfer market session, motivated by a curriculum that few have: 5 years with Bayern Munich, over 100 appearances, a Bundesliga on the bulletin board, as well as successes at home. Fear in the final, when in full recovery Pomigliano hits the post with Corelli. But the black and whites are smiling, again second in solitary ahead of Fiorentina.
There are 30 points of difference between Rome and Parma. The first one faces the last one: everything seemed obvious, also because the first leg ended 5-0 (the biggest defeat for Domenico Panico’s team remains to date), and instead the Giallorossi only managed 15 ‘ from the end. A 3-2 suffered for those who had won 8 of the last 9 away games, but in the end Parma is still the team that has collected the most points at home – in percentage terms – of all (67%). Roma, the second best defense in Europe behind Barcelona, therefore returns to collect more than one goal, as it had only happened against Juve. After 5′, the usual Martinovic unlocks the match, the Parma player who scored the most (5 goals), who shot the most and created the most chances. It’s the fourth goal you’ve scored for the Giallorossi, a nightmare. Then the leaders come back within 10’ with a blow from Haavi and a heel from Giacinti, but just before the interval Bardin gets rid of Cinotti and makes it 2-2. Who solves it? Andressa, always her, who hits a penalty (Cappelletti, the goalkeeper with the most saves in the tournament, touches with his left foot but is unable to deflect). Roma, four days from the end of the regular season, thus remain +5 on Juventus.
If Fiorentina (1-0 against Sassuolo) and Milan (3-0 against Sampdoria) win, the only one of the top six to slow down is Inter, stopped at home by Como. The Nerazzurri, who have won just two of their last eight games, are stuck on 26 points, three fewer than last year. In the 20th minute the visitors took the lead, starting on the counterattack with Kubassova and finishing in the net with Pavan, who scored his second goal in the league despite only being 18 years old. Just 3′ went by and Inter equalized again through Polli, who made the most of a perfect ball from Chawinga and scored his ninth goal of the tournament. But Como, unbeaten in four away games in a row, held on until the end. The best possible way to react to the bad defeat against Pomigliano.
