BENEVENTO. Sad return to bad habits: in Benevento, against one of the strongest teams in Serie B, Pordenone not only does not look bad, but is close to banging. Check the outbursts of the Giallorossi at the start, cages them, stings them and hits them inexorably. Then, however, he accuses a “black-out” of those that have cost so far too many points, and allows the “Witches” to reassemble and put three precious bricks in the race for promotion.
A step back for the green lizards, but “only” in terms of results, after the long-awaited victory against Alexandria. All that remains is to continue on the path taken. Crucial for salvation will be the next two challenges to the Calabrians, Cosenza in Lignano and Crotone away, direct rivals, also defeated on this 16th day, as well as Vicenza, which therefore did not escape. The lightness, however, will no longer be allowed.
Three novelties in Tedino’s eleven compared to the victorious one against Alexandria: El Kaouakibi takes back his place from right-back, Bassoli a bit surprisingly replaces Barison in the center of the defense and Kupisz is the mezzala (outside Zammarini). In Benevento there is the great former Vogliacco, together with high-value companions, such as Acampora, Roberto Insigne and Lapadula, just to name a few: a team, that of Caserta, which definitely aims at returning to A.
Immediately aggressive start of Benevento, immediately on the assault. After a couple of corners conquered, the violent conclusion of Ionita arrives who finds Perisan ready to be rejected. Folorunsho responds shortly after, with a low shot from outside the area that ends slightly to the side. But the break did not placate the fury of the “Witches”, who went close to scoring even with Improta, left at the near post neutralized again by the extreme neroverde. Also in this case the reaction is immediate, but Cambiaghi “smoothes” a very tasty ball a few meters from the goal. At the Vigorito the hosts play smoothly, with quick and easy plots and an ease in getting to the shot rather worrying for the neroverdi, who however confirm that they have turned on the level of play, desire and intensity, remaining courageously high. to press the opponents on their trocar and exhibiting a good defensive hold.
As the minutes go by, the Pordenone takes the field and confidence, looking out more often from the parts of Paleari, especially when restarting, although perhaps not with the necessary speed. Quality that is certainly not lacking in the excellent Cambiaghi at 7 ‘of a second half which opened along the lines of the first, when he conquers a great ball anticipating Elia on an apparently quiet exit, flees towards the back taking the local defense off guard, crosses well for the rushing Butic who, from the height of the penalty spot, on the fly with the left-handed bag his first center in this championship.
Pordenone tries to tighten the shirts to defend the advantage, but shortly after the double change of Caserta, Di Serio for Acampora and Brignola for Improta, Benevento overturns it in an amen exploiting two defensive indecisions of the lizards: at 17 ‘a defective raise of Falasco on a corner favors the blow of Elia, who from the edge of the area leaves the Perisan building stunned. Less than a minute later Benevento steals a ball from their own trocar, Lapadula runs away physically on the left-handed lane and puts in the middle for Di Serio, who anticipates everyone and signs the 2-1.
Around half an hour, Pordenone is seen to be awarded and then removed from the Var a penalty for a handball by Elia that objectively seems not to be there. And at 35 ‘Folorunsho devours himself such a great opportunity, sending him up to one meter from Paleari. It is the signal of the black-green surrender and the entrances of Sylla, Ciciretti and Tsadjout are worthless.
