Fàbregas returns among the starting 11 and Lucas Da Cunha, deployed by coach Longo behind forwards Cerri and Cutrone, also makes his first-minute debut in a Como jersey.
In the first 10 minutes Como took advantage mainly of Alberto Cerri’s centimeters to set up the maneuver, Larians having the ball of the game in their hands but unable to finish.
Como came close to a goal with Cutrone, who latched onto Fàbregas’ cross in the box but failed to finish. In the 19th minute, Cesc Fàbregas won a free kick from the edge but his conclusion was not successful.
Como tried again in the 25th minute with a double conclusion by Da Cunha and Binks with the first one rejected by the defense and the second one ending up outside.
In the final minutes of the first half, the hosts tried to make themselves dangerous but did not trouble the White and Blue rearguard. The first half of the game thus ends at zero to zero.
In the second half the same 22 on the field with Cutrone shooting in the second minute from the edge engaging Poluzzi in a great save. On the ensuing corner kick again the home defender blocks in his grip.
Como again, with a header by Cerri that is blocked in the socket not without some difficulty by Poluzzi.
Südtirol tries to respond by winning a corner kick that leads to Mazzocchi’s shot, the shovel goes out. Como responds with the game becoming decidedly more lively, in the 10th minute Cerri stoops with his chest and finishes just wide from the edge.
Again the Lariani with Cutrone receiving and controlling on the left side putting in the middle a cross that Vignali hit with his head, with the ball ending just wide.
Double change for Longo in the 63rd minute, out come Fàbregas and Da Cunha for Baselli and Blanco. Südtirol meanwhile tries to play on the counterattacks with Rover engaging Gomis. On the ensuing corner kick Zaro’s header puts in the net.
Longo puts on Parigini for Odenthal and Como tries to attack, Baselli hits a header from the center of the penalty area but the ball goes very close. Gabrielloni and Mancuso also enter with 10 minutes left for Vignali and Cutrone.
Como tried in the final, Baselli took a free kick in the box, the ball bounced near Scaglia who saw his cross shot blocked by Poluzzi, however.
In the 90th minute Como found a penalty with Gabrielloni who managed to anticipate Masiello, from the 11 meters Alberto Cerri came forward and coolly scored. Como returns with a 1-1 draw from the away match in Bolzano.
