FIRST HALF | Palermo Cosenza | Highlights 32nd Serie B 20/23
First ball entrusted to the rosanero who attack from left to right. The match director blows his whistle for the start of the match.
After a few seconds of play, Brunori earns a free kick from an interesting position, just beyond the opponent’s penalty area.
Valerio Verre goes to kick, but his shot goes high over the crossbar. In the 5th minute, on the development of a corner kick, Gomes tries a shot from the edge, but blocked by the Cosenza defense.
After a sprint start by Corini’s men, around the 15th minute the rhythms slow down, but control of the game remains between the Sicilians’ feet.
In the 23rd minute, Viali’s team shows itself forward and a super intervention by Pigliacelli is needed to stop Meroni’s header with a sure shot.
In the 29th minute Vaisanen from Cosenza was forced to leave the field due to a physical problem, Venturi entered in his place.
The following minutes the rhythms slow down again and the race lives on few emotions.
Palermo tries to build some offensive actions, but often the advances of the pinks run out more horizontally than vertically.
The Calabrians defend themselves and try to hurt on the counterattack, but the Sicilians’ defensive department holds the shots of the rossoblù counterattacks well.
At the end of the two minutes of added time, the match director sends everyone to the locker room. Goalless first half at the “Renzo Barbera”.
