⏱️ RECOVERY: one minute of extratime
43 ′ – Last minutes of the first half, with Cagliari trying to control the maneuver without finding offensive outlets, risking not a little on the restarts of Johnsen and Okereke.
40 ‘- Lykogiannis corner kick from the left, Caceres is anticipated by Aramu but Volpi inexplicably does not grant the second corner to the rossoblù, amid protests from players and the public.

20 ‘- VENICE OPPORTUNITY: Aramu tries the Olympic goal from a corner, but Godin intervenes to remove the ball from the near post area.
Perfect restart of Cagliari on the Marin-Nandez axis, which reaches the edge of the area and serves a very solitary Caceres who puts in the middle for the perfect head-off of the Hispanic-Senegalese, who beats Maenpaa unstoppably and blows up the Unipol Domus!
18 ‘- ⚽ GOOOOOOOL OF CAGLIARI !!!!!! KEITA !!!!!!

1 ‘- PARTIES!
20.44 – Teams on the field, Cagliari who will attack from right to left with Alessio Cragno who goes to take the applause of the South Curve.
20.40 – Beautiful choreography of the South Curve, with red and blue nylon strips, which cross the entire sector horizontally.
20.37 – These, however, the words of Walter Mazzarri to Sky’s microphones: “Having the whole squad available would have been the best thing, but a coach who works with the whole group shouldn’t feel sorry for himself. I believe that the guys who will go on the pitch today will give everything and that’s the important thing, I can’t wait to take the field. The first two days of preparation we worked little because we had to recover from the away game. We did two training sessions on the pitch and I received more positive feedback than I saw in the last match ”.
20.34 – First offensive chants of the visiting fans, confirming the ancient rusts between the two supporters. However, the response from the North curve is not aimed at the guests, but against the Rossoblu patron Tommaso Giulini, defined as the “incompetent President”.
20.30 – While the teams return to the locker room for the last indications before the kick-off, the official call for Godin, Nandez, Pereiro and Caceres for the Uruguay triptych of matches arrives.
20.28 – So Andrea Carboni to Dazn’s microphones: “We are entering the mechanics of the coaches, after difficult weeks we are ready to make a change. The Cagliari shirt? It weighs, but it is a huge pride to play for this team. The group has always been there, we are compact and we work well. I consider myself lucky to play at 20 with players of the caliber of Godin and Caceres, but I have to continue to show that I deserve that place ”.
20.25 – Last shooting sessions for Cagliari and Venice, on the notes of a techno remix of “Eye of the Tiger”, the iconic soundtrack of Rocky III, a film with Sylvester Stallone.
