Cavese 0-1 Palermo, a discreet begin of 2021!
White networks between Palermo and Cavese at the end of the first half, in the first official match of the squads of 2021. An ugly Palermo, little purpose against the last in the standings, in a match, to be won at all costs.
The mistake from the spot by Lorenzo Lucca was sensational, who in the 40th minute would have had the opportunity to take the pink lead, but the rosanero striker clumsily kicks out the penalty kick assigned by the referee for a foul on Nicola Valente.
Also worth noting was a goal canceled for offside always to Valente, who appeared among the best in this bad first half. For the rest, little to report apart from a couple of good saves by Pelagotti We need a shock in the second half to try to win.
Pelagotti between the posts, Accardi and Crivello low outside, Lancini and Somma a pair of power plants to complete the rear. Martin pole catalyst in the median, Odjer and Luperini to act as mezzali, Valente, Lucca and Kanoute to form the offensive trident.
Palermo tries to take over the reins of the game with an authoritative air and do a maneuver but in the first ten minutes, there are no particularly significant emotions. At the twelfth thrill in the rosanero home, Lancini touches the ball back for Pelagotti, and a puddle risks playing a bad joke on the visiting far end who manages to remedy. Martin runs out of time to stem an opponent’s restart and gets a yellow card.
At the twentieth, Palermo also found the goal of the advantage, but the position of Valente, good at heading a cross from Odjer, was judged to be illegal by the referee and therefore remained in a tie. Cavese responds practically immediately, but Pelagotti is good at opposing Germinale’s header and avoiding the worst. Crackling minutes, with yet another jolt from the rosanero signed by Lucca that calls the home goalkeeper to a difficult intervention in low grip after a nice cross from Valente.
At the thirty-nine minute, Palermo packs a great chance to break the deadlock: Lucca triggers the percussion on the left-handed track of Valente who is spread out as he enters the penalty area. The subsequent penalty is kicked very badly by the 2000 class who angles the right too much, chewing the conclusion and not hitting the mirror of the goal.
