For Como, Davide Bertoncini and especially Marco Varnier return to the field from the first minute after a long stop.
Pisa immediately starts strong and in the seventh minute on a long pass Bertoncini slips thus opening the way to Puscas who signs the advantage of the hosts.
Como tries to respond on 23 ‘with a conclusion from Gliozzi on a throw from Iovine, which is well rejected by Livieri. Como tries again to push from Iovine’s band who plays well with Nardi and arrives at the conclusion deflected by a Nerazzurri defender.
Again the Larians with two chances to head in the half hour, first with Varnier who sends out a little and then with La Gumina who does not catch a whisker.
Pisa tries hard to double in the final half and only Bellemo’s deviation first and Gori’s rescue with the recall arm later thwarted the Nerazzurri’s attempt.
Como reacts, this time with La Gumina who in a central raid is very good at breaking free and going to the conclusion finding a great save from Livero.
In the second half La Gumina tries again in the 53rd minute but his conclusion on the side of Gliozzi ends on the side. At 57 ‘Gattuso puts Ciciretti for Nardi and it is precisely the number 17 who, with a conclusion in the 60th minute, calls Liviero’s miracle. The goal is in the air and Como finds him in the 63rd minute on a corner kick from Arrigoni who puts in the middle and finds Gliozzi quick on a spike of the defense at the far post to send the ball into the bag. However, the draw lasted only a few minutes because on a Ioannou – Birindelli contact the referee whistled a penalty and Torregrossa made no mistake from 11 meters.
Double change for Como come out Varnier and L in Gumina and Vignali and Gabrielloni. The Pisa, however, found the goal of 3-1 with Puscas on an assist from Lucca. Kabashi and Blanco also enter Como for Arrigoni and Iovine. Gabrielloni tries in injury time on a couple of occasions, but thanks to bad luck and imprecision, he doesn’t score.
The next appointment for the Larians is the match scheduled for Monday 25th at Sinigaglia against Vicenza.
