Sottil equalized the goal of Joao Pedro who also misses a penalty
Cagliari – Two missed penalties, one on each side. And one goal each. With the hissed ex Sottil who, with Fiorentina in ten for the red in Odriozola, replies to Joao Pedro’s goal at the start of the second half. Result, one by one. With Cagliari biting their hands for having failed the match point with the wrong penalty from Joao Pedro, in the smell of the first call in the national team. And shortly before with an error by Dalbert, another ex. It is true that the game could have taken another direction at the start of the match: it was Biraghi who had the shot parried from eleven meters by Radunovic. But Cagliari also has two woods on its side, one from Joao Pedro and the other, in their goal, from Milenkovic.
Mazzarri must be satisfied with having recovered a point on Venice. And finally to have a gritty team, ready to play it all the way. Despite the Covid wave with three players recovered in extremis and many others out. Heavy absences also for Fiorentina: without Vlahovic it is certainly not the team of 6-0 at Genoa. The tactical key? Mazzarri put his effort into not letting the Italian team play. The move from the bench is to place Dalbert behind the strikers to disturb as much as possible the start from the bottom of the purple maneuver. Torreira in fact always has the Brazilian on. And in fact from the sides of the three in front few clean balls arrive: Vlahovic is not there and can be heard.
No goals in the first half, but a little bit of everything happens: two woods for Cagliari and a wrong penalty for Fiorentina. After 15 seconds good ball for Buonaventura, almost surprised himself for the opportunity so soon. On the 5th minute Biraghi messes up and luckily for the viola also Joao Pedro in front of goal. At 7 ‘there is the penalty for the guests with Bellanova overwhelming Odriozola. Radunovic, however, saves the penalty kicked by Biraghi. The escaped danger shakes Cagliari. At 13 ‘the best moment of the match: players and fans stopped to remember and applaud Astori, the viola and rossoblu player. Always with us, is the message of the stadium board. The second part of the second half is of “wood” for Cagliari: Joao Pedro’s pole in the 25th minute and crossbar on Milenkovic’s backward deflection on a free-kick hit by Marin in the small area.
In the second half, however, Cagliari adjust your aim just enough: corner of Pereiro and Joao Pedro marks the tenth goal in the league. Very contested episode at 20 ‘: for a hand ball by Odiorzola on a header by Joao Pedro, the referee awards the penalty. And it doesn’t come back. Odriozola expelled. From the spot, however, Joao Pedro jams: Terracciano saves. And it’s a failed match point. Because in the meantime, the Italian gets the move by putting Sottil in: the former steals the ball from Marin in midfield and in the sprint beats the rossoblù defense and Radunovic with a diagonal on the far post. Controversial exultation towards the local public, after playing part of the last season in the rossoblù, the referee warns the attacker and Italian shortly after removes him to avoid trouble. In the final Cagliari cooked and Fiorentina satisfied: the result does not change.
