Cerri can’t make it, a long stop is expected for him, in attack Gattuso chooses the pair La Gumina and Gliozzi, with the latter returning from the hat-trick in Parma. In defense, Edoardo Bovolon made his debut from the first minute.
At 13 ‘the guests took the lead with Baldini taking advantage of a rebound in the area and beating Gori. Not even a minute goes by that Como finds a tie with Ciciretti’s eurogol from outside the area. Como tries to find the advantage above all by exploiting the restarts of Ciciretti, La Gumina and Parisians. Lariani at half an hour pushing with Parigini and Vignali in search of the tips in the middle of the area. At 36 ‘, however, the Cittadella took the lead again with a conclusion from outside Baldini, also thanks to the favorable wind. The first half ends with the guests 1-2 ahead.
Same 22 on the field in the second half with Como starting strong with Parigini, who served by Ciciretti is facing Kastrati, but his shot is too angled and passes it out over the bottom line. At 21′ it is still the white-blue number 11 to push for the hosts with a central descent that ends with a razor finish just outside.
Gattuso puts Gabrielloni and Nardi for La Gumina and Arrigoni. It is precisely the number 25 who at 65 ‘tries a conclusion from the limit on a solitary initiative, even this slightly out. Gabrielloni also tries his head a few minutes later but the ball comes out slightly high. Blanco and Peli also enter for Ciciretti and Bovolon. At 76 ‘Parigini takes the second yellow card and is sent off, the comeback of the Lariani becomes complicated. At 78 ‘Kabashi also enters while Como tries to be dangerous with Peli’s gallops.
In the final, for the sum of a yellow card, Solini is also sent off, on the triple whistle it is 1-2 for the Cittadella.
