Juric prods him, Belotti responds with the winning goal: with thrill. They are three points chasing away trouble for Toro who this time does not collapse against unsafe teams. He beats the Salernitana of the former Nicola 1-0 after a hard-fought challenge full of extreme contrasts (eight yellow cards and an expulsion), but very poor in technical blasts. To do so, he clings to the symbol of his history of the last few years which he will probably say goodbye in June. First, there is still a final to write, or rather two for the Gallo and the goal found away from home is the best way to start. It allows the grenades to give a kick to the last two months and also to the frustration that was increasing: the success was missing from January 15th (2-1 against Sampdoria) and this definitively shelters the ranking. And the striker will find a little smile even after the disappointment with the national team: he hasn’t scored since February 27th.
Sliding doors. Berisha has great reflexes in the 8th minute when the last of the considered at the time of the Toro, a darting Verdi, flies the Mazzocchi cross from inside the area: the Albanian manages to deflect the ball on the post, foiling a goal that it seemed done. Seven minutes later Fazio drowns Belotti in the area and this time the referee cannot but concede the penalty. It is the first of the season for the grenades, but it takes three minutes to take the lead: Belotti gets the first shot saved by Sepe, but while the Gallo is desperate Piccinini still points to the spot due to invasion in the area by Gyomber. Same corner to the right of the goalkeeper, this time that of Salernitana is thrown to the other side and for Toro it is 1-0. It is the fifth center of the season for the bomber, who a few minutes later wastes the (big) opportunity to replenish his booty by weakly kicking from a few steps.
Another episode risks changing the inertia of the match when the Var, while the teams were about to restart the game, canceled the 2-0 signed by Singo in tap in after 9 ‘of the second half. The Ivorian is offside on the cross that Bremer turns into goal forcing the goalkeeper to make a great intervention. The home supporters cheer as if it were a goal and the goal in the 19th minute seems to come with Ederson, but Berisha gets past once again and swerves for a corner. The expulsion at 5 ‘from the end of Fazio who, already warned, gets the second “yellow” for a foul on Belotti, does not dampen the final of Salernitana. The Bull fails with Mandragora the goal of tranquility, then in the first of seven minutes of recovery the Gallo hits the post. Then it’s siege: Mikael nearly equalizes in acrobatics. But in the end, suffering, the Bull wins.
