Top and failure of Pescara-Pineto

Pescara makes the Abruzzo derby his own, having overcome Pineto 2-0, making the most of two opportunities created in the last ten minutes to bring home a third win in a row, the visitors’ fourth defeat in the last eight games. It was not the best match that was played this evening in one of the two postponed games at the Adriatico Giovanni Cornacchia. The home team struggled for a long time to get the better of their opponents’ meticulous and organized defence, not finding enough time or space for their usual formulations. In the first half Pescara looked slow and lacking ideas, they improved in the second half but were unable to find any openings. Amaolo’s team played their game, mainly trying not to take a single ball, which was logical, given the level of the opponent, who was punished beyond measure in the final. in the news, the injured Zdenek Zeman does not go to the bench, his place is taken by his second Giovanni Bucaro. Delfino also saw many changes on the pitch: Francini and Sasanelli were suspended, while Vergani, Accornero and fellow injured player Cangiano, Pellacani returned to the bench. In the usual 4-3-3 formation, the only novelty is that Dagasso is preferred in midfield to the former Avellino De Marco, along with Aloi and Tundzhov. The defense confirmed: Brosco and Di Pasquale in the center of defense, Floriani Mussolini and Milani on the flanks. An offensive trident consisting of Merola, Cuppone and newcomer Capone. On the other hand, Amaolo has to deal with the absence of Amadio and Evangelisti, while Manu, as expected, goes to the bench. There is room for the former Ingrosso, De Santis and Marafini in the 3-5-2 starting formation. Teraschi preferred Badgi on the right flank and Borsoy on the opposite flank, Germinario, Lombardi and Sannipoli confirmed in the center of the field, while in attack Gambale wins the second round and Cakir supports Volpicelli. At the beginning of the match, the visitors press, then, when Zeman’s team moves forward, their center of gravity shifts back, without giving much away. The result was a very close match, in which there were duels on both sides in all areas of the field. The derby looks rather blocked and does not evoke much emotion among the five thousand spectators at the Adriatico Stadium. In the 28th minute there was a rather reckless intervention from De Santis, who sent the ball into the corner before Floriani raised the white flag and was replaced by Pierno. Pineto responds with a classic, poisonous Volpicelli free-kick that defuses Pizzari. During the break, the hosts made a double substitution: De Marco and Meazzi for Aloi and Capone. Thanks to Pescara’s maneuver, the team’s advantage is that it plays with greater determination and intensity while still fighting to become dangerous. In the 54th minute Merola tries from a tight angle, his right foot is not controlled by Tonti, fortunately for him Meazzi touches the ball, unable to give direction and power. About halfway through the second half, Amaolo also made the first changes to give his team some freshness, but the home side still applied pressure. Meazzi earns a free kick, which Tunchov throws over the crossbar, and Sannipoli, on the other side, misses the target. in the 80th minute the fight was resolved: a rebound between Cuppone and the former Ingrosso, the ball reached De Marco, who knocked out Tonti with a right-footed shot. Pineto rushes forward in search of an equalizer, inevitably leaving room for Pescara. Restart for the hosts on the Cuppone-Merola axis: the first is hypnotized by Tonti, the second pounces on the winning swap. Here are the best and worst comparisons:
