SERIE A SALERNITANA CAGLIARI – The curtain falls on Serie A. After the Scudetto won by Milan, the last verdict comes for the relegation. Nicola’s Salernitana loses soundly at home, 4-0 against Udinese but keeps the category. Cagliari does not go beyond 0-0 in Venice and relegates to Serie B after 6 years.
Serie A – Salernitana saves despite the blow, Cagliari relegates to B.
The Salernitana of mister Nicola collapses, after seven consecutive useful results, in the most delicate moment of the season. The first half for the grenades is a nightmare, three goals conceded and a wrong penalty for Udinese. The only hope to cultivate in the second half of the game was only a positive result from ‘Penzo’, given that the Friulians in the meantime also scored the fourth goal. A real psychodrama for the Sardinians, who do not go beyond 0-0 in Venice. The lagoon conceded goals from twenty-six consecutive games and in the decisive match Cagliari was unable to extend the negative record for Venice.
Altare’s goal at the last and Perotti’s missed penalty seem to be a condemnation for Salernitana. Even more so after the 0-4 against Udinese. On the other field, Venezia honors the championship until the end, with 5 points in the last 3, and sends Cagliari to B. La Salernitana, the president Iervolino, Sabatini, mister and Nicola have accomplished a real feat.
