In the second round of the just-concluded Serie C promotion play-off final, Palermo beat Padua 1-0 at home, thus successfully promoting to Serie B with a total score of 2-0. Brunoli scored the only goal of the game, and the two of Padova were sent off.
In the first round of the match between the two sides, Palermo scored the only goal in the 10th minute by Floriano to take away the victory from the away game. In this game, they only need a draw to seal their qualification for next season’s Serie B. In the 25th minute of the first half, Brunoli took the lead for the home team, and their aggregate score was already 2-0.
The trailing Padua players played more and more impatiently. In the 55th minute of the second half, Padua midfielder Ronaldo Pompeu committed a reckless foul and was directly sent off with a red card. The team was more passive on the field. In stoppage time, central defender Perragatti was also sent off for two yellows and one red, and Padova was powerless to recover. In the end, Palermo defeated Padua 2-0 with a total score and successfully entered the Serie B league next season.
This is the second upgrade that Palermo has completed since it was forced to restructure due to bankruptcy in 2019. The only team from Sicily has finally returned to the sight of Chinese fans. As early as the first decade of the 21st century, Palermo blew a whirlwind in Serie A and became the memory of a generation of fans. Italian internationals such as Miccoli, Barzagli and Zacardo have come out here, and famous players such as Dybala, Pastore and Cavani have also been trained. However, because of the financial crisis, the team once fell into the Italian League. Fortunately, the team did not give up on itself. They returned to the Serie B in just three seasons.
The bigger surprise was that City Football Group was previously rumored to be interested in taking over the former Serie A team Palermo. It is reported that the group will pay 8 million euros to acquire an 80% stake in Palermo. This group, which has expanded wildly around the world and won 11 teams such as Manchester City, is likely to help Palermo quickly enter the league. Maybe in a few years, maybe in just one year, this glorious team in the first decade of the 21st century can be on the stage of Serie A again.Return to Sohu, see more
