The Como still with the tested 3-4-1-2 of the last matches, for the Lariani Stefano Gori returns in goal, in attack Parigini in support of the two strikers Cerri and La Gumina.
The first opportunity is for Vittorio Parigini who on 7 ‘on a throw from Vignali hooks well in the area, but face to face with Turk slips and fails to finish.
Again the number 11, among the most inspired of his: Vignali’s cross, this time from the right out he hits his head using the veil of La Gumina but the ball ends high.
Again the Lariani with a nice ball recovered by Nardi on the trocar, the number 25 serves Parigini in the band who puts a nice cross in the middle for Cerri, the 27 does not touch his head for a few centimeters.
The hosts also showed up in the 18 ‘with Vazquez, who threw an angled razor from the edge rejected by Gori.
Como tries again, this time with a personal initiative by Parigini from the left, enters the area and crushes too much the conclusion that comes out low to the side.
It was Parma, however, who took the lead in the 31st minute with a shot from Vazquez, unfortunate the detour by Vignali on which Stefano Gori could do nothing.
Como immediately tries to respond with Bellemo who opens for Iovine in the area, the number 6 was the lead for Cerri who loads the right but finds the great response from Turk.
The guests do not give up, this time with Cerri who harpoons a ball in the area and opens the heel for Nardi, his cross towards the back line is however intercepted by the host defense, on the rejected Vignali tries from outside but the ball goes out to the side . The first half ends with the advantage of the hosts.
In the second half it is Como immediately, Parigini from the left puts a nice ball in the middle for the header of La Gumina that comes out just a little. Gattuso after 12 minutes puts Gliozzi and Ioannou for La Gumina and Nardi. It is precisely the number 72 who signs the tie after just one minute from entering the field: Ettore receives from Iovine on a long ball and first anticipates Turk’s exit by signing the 1-1.
Only 7 minutes pass and Gliozzi signs the doubling: a great action by Vittorio Parigini who accurately puts in the middle, the striker Lariano signs the doubling.
However, Parma believed in it and equalized with Adrian Bernabè on a direct free kick on goal that beats Gori. Not much goes by and with another punishment Bernabè puts the Crusaders ahead. At 84 Tutino could close the accounts by signing the 4-2, but the Lariani do not give up and win a penalty with Peli at 89 ‘, on the spot Gliozzi shows up who shortens the distance by making a personal hat-trick.
In the 4 minutes of injury time, Como is very close to a draw with Gabrielloni, who heads the scrum from a corner kick to Turk. A few moments later comes the final whistle.
Mister Gattuso’s boys, after having achieved the mathematical salvation, will return to the field in the match scheduled for Saturday 9 against Cittadella.
