Como in the next few minutes tried taking advantage of Ioannou’s crosses for Cerri’s centimeters, while always headers Venezia also had a couple of chances with the ball always ending high over the crossbar.
However, Venice found the lead through Nicholas Pierini in the 20th minute. Como tried to respond immediately with Da Cunha brushing in a free kick for Abildgaard, his header ending just high.
Como tried again with Chajia, but Venezia in the 31st minute on a counterattack found the double with Pierini. Como tries to exploit mostly the quality and physique of Cerri to shorten the distance while Venezia instead waits and plays on the counterattack. In the recovery, Como came forward with conclusions from Cutrone and Da Cunha but the result did not change.
