COSENZA – The first of Cosenza at home, the first in front of its fans, who returned to crowd the Marulla stands and celebrate the first three points of the season that give morale and oxygen to the standings after two consecutive defeats. There were just over 3 thousand this afternoon to push the rossoblu who with a race of character and never in question, bring home the first three points of the season finally show play and chances, which is rare in these parts in the last year and a half. Match decided by the goals in the first half of Burning (large diagonal on the second post) and by the doubling of Caso in the second half, on the net with a counterattack action. Meggiorini’s goal in full recovery on a penalty kick, granted by the Var for a touch of hands in the area by Pandolfi, which hardly changes the substance of a match dominated and won by the rossoblu.
The chronicle – The first ring is from the guests shooting with a free-kick from Dalmonte’s 30 meters. Vigorito rejects with his fists. Cosenza replies with a foray by the former Gori who in the 8th minute finds the goal of the advantage. Great action on the right of Caso who jumps three opponents, focuses and serves the attacker vertically: control to the limit and a large left diagonal that Pizzignacco can only touch. Ball on the net and Cosenza ahead. The game changes: the guests now have to chase, while the rossoblu can take advantage of the restarts by triggering an inspired Case. Just there‘Genoa-owned striker creates a new opportunity at 22‘. Carraro’s illuminating launch, 40-meter sprint and diagonal instep from a centralized position that finds Pizzignacco’s response. Cosenza, with a Palimiero to dictate the time in the middle of the field, manages without risking practically anything and closes the first half deservedly ahead.
The second half opens with the entry of Ranocchia in place of the former Crecco and with Vicenza decidedly more proactive after a sterile first half. Di Carlo, who reaches 600 appearances on a bench, also throws Pontisso and Meggiorini into the fray. But it is the Cosenza to strike again, with a goal from his best player of the day. Great launch by Gori (who returns the favor) by Caso flying in the open field, burning at speed Brosco, presents himself in front of Pizzignacco he does it dry with a flat low shot from inside. At 68 ′ Dalmonte collects a cross from the right and turns into the area on the fly firing into the curve, while two minutes later the first shot towards the Cosenza goal is by Longo: Vigorito blocks to the ground. Minute 71 ‘e standing ovation by chance which gives way to Pandolfi. Rossoblu godfathers of the field who at 77 ‘touch the trio with a left to turn of Gori that is printed on the crossbar. At 86 ‘the first real danger for Vigorito’s goal with one waving of Pontisso from the edge that comes out of a nothing. At 90 ‘touch of hands in the area of Pandolfi and after checking Var Prontera assigns the penalty kick that Meggiorini transforms with Vigorito who can only touch. In full recovery Pandolfi engages the goalkeeper with a great shot from the edge, then the triple final whistle to sanction the deserved success of the rossoblu.
