The Italian championship resumed on Saturday, after a break due to the coronavirus pandemic. Verona came into the championship continuation with a 2-1 win over Cagliari at home.
Samuel Di Carmine had been the home side’s double scorer. He scored the first goal in the 14th minute with a five-meter header and shook Cagliari’s net in the 26th minute with a powerful and precise shot from over 20 meters. Borini started carelessly in the 35th minute and received a straight red card. In the 43rd minute, the guests took advantage of the numerical advantage when Argentinean Giovanni Simeone scored a goal.
Cagliari was left with ten on the field in the 70th minute, though, because Cigarini earned the second yellow card.
Verona came in seventh with 38 points with her 10th championship victory and only one point separates her from sixth-placed Napoli and a place in next season’s European League draw. Cagliari suffered his tenth loss and stayed with 32 points in 12th place.
After a three-and-a-half-month hiatus caused by the Covid-19 disease pandemic, which claimed more than 34,000 lives on the Apennine Peninsula, two of the remaining four Series A 25th round games on Saturday resumed the Italian Football Championship.
Torino and Parma were allowed to play their first football match in Italy after a hundred days of forced rest, and the duel ended in a 1-1 draw.
Torino came close to extending the lead of the visitors when, after a pass through the middle, he found himself completely unmarked in front of the goal but lifted the ball over Luigi Sepe and it was a bit too high and hit the bar.
With 28 points, Torino remained in 15th position, three points above the relegation zone, while Parma jumped to 7th with 36 points.
On Sunday, Atalanta – Sassuolo (19.30) and Inter – Sampdoria (21.45) will play the remainder of the 25th round.
All matches of the Italian football championship continuation are played without the presence of the spectators at the stands.
