Cagliari pays homage to Gigi Riva, but Torino wins on the pitch – Calcio

Cagliari Turin 1-2- THE NEWS

A match for Gigi Riva, but Torino wins on the pitch. 2-1. Sold out, special t-shirts, chants, banners as a tribute to the Cagliari and national champion who passed away last Monday. And the game stopped for almost a minute in the eleventh minute to allow the crowd to stand up to applaud Rombo di Tuono, the legendary rossoblù no.11. On the pitch, however, the Sardinians lacked the champion’s strength and so the solidity of the Granata won, immediately putting the game on their side with Zapata and Ricci in the first half. In the second half Viola reopens the match with some magic. But Toro wins: Napoli stuck in ninth place for now. The 3-4-1-2 is giving good answers to Juric. Bellanova on the right was not only fast but also decisive in assisting Zapata. Ricci’s pearl then closed the accounts. A team that worked in all departments today. Cagliari did poorly in the first half, generous in the second half.

Ranieri gives confidence to all the players who on paper should have made the team make a leap in quality due to their experience in Serie A or in the Greek or Dutch top flight. There is therefore room for Hatzidiakos and Wieteska at the back, for Sulemana and Jankto between midfield and three-quarters and Petagna in front. The only one who survives among the new arrivals, however, is Scuffet. Sulemana not judgeable, left immediately due to injury. The usual and solid Torino takes advantage of this. After a very friendly start also due to the effect of the celebrations for Riva (the match stopped at the 11th for a long round of applause for Rombo di Tuono) in the 24th minute Torino went ahead. It’s the first real action of the match. And it’s a goal.

Great credit to Bellanova who sprints and crosses from his wing, the right, and puts it in the middle. In the middle Zapata beats Wieteska. And for Scuffet there is nothing to be done. The goalkeeper then performs a miracle on Sanabria’s header. Then Cagliari wakes up a bit with three chances in a row for Jankto: some of them he misses, some of them are unlucky. But the opportunity to close everything is Zapata’s: Wieteska easily skips and appears only in front of Scuffet. Goalkeeper Scuffet makes another save. And later he repeats himself on an almost own goal by Wieteska. In injury time Toro doubles: Ricci’s tunnel on Wieteska, then the number 28 swallows the whole defense.

Scuffet tries on his shot, but the miracles are over. In the second half Ranieri tries with the soul of Viola and Pavoletti. However, Torino is always solid. Indeed, he comes close to scoring a trio by chipping the post with Bellanova from outside the area. Good opportunity for Petagna, on the wrong foot, in the 19th minute. But then Lazaro rebalances the score of chances in the 21st minute. Cagliari finally throws in the trident: Lapadula also enters to attempt a comeback. But beware of the magic of a left-footed player (like Riva): Viola invents himself in the 32nd minute with a shot to return the goal that reopens the match. Pellegri’s goal to make it three was disallowed. Cagliari’s final assault was then useless. Mini crisis for Ranieri’s team with two knockouts in a row.
