Serie D, Fc Messina reassembled and beaten at home by Rende

Messina Football Club beaten, in comeback (2-1), at “Franco Scoglio” by Rende. Match with two faces, Giallorossi better in the first half, superior guests in the second

Proactive hosts at the start of the game with many men projected forward. Opponents cautious despite the 3-4-3, which would have heralded a different approach. Immediately a danger created by Licciardello, whose diagonal is promptly rejected by the goalkeeper. Unlocks the score at 15 ‘Santapaola, who bags the ball with a peremptory aerial shot on a tight corner by Bramati. Four minutes pass and Licciardello is spread out in the area by Palma, the referee awards the penalty, which Orlando gets saved by Mittica. The Giallorossi thus waste a great opportunity to double. Santapaola, galvanized by the goal, throws (26 ‘) a shot from the edge, which does not just frame the mirror. At the beginning of the second half, Orlando tries, but without the necessary aim. On the other front, Giannini misses a postponement and triggers the red and white, Palma serves Abbey, who beats without fail, but Giannini redeems himself, deflecting the ball with his hand. On the continuation of the action, Palma still misses the target. Response entrusted to Orlando’s spectacular overhead kick, on the side. Palma, the best of the match together with Abbey, equalized in the 63rd minute, making a cross from Corbo from close range. The FC Messina tries to shake itself with the lash of the usual Santapaola, which touches the post. Doubtful intervention then at the end of Tosolini on Abbey, the Calabrians demand the assignment of the maximum punishment, the referee leaves, however, to run. Over time, the guests appear athletically more lively and overtake in the 79th minute with the header of the wild Palma. Rende could immediately close the accounts, but Palma himself fails a penalty (decreed for Perez’s foul on Abbey and intercepted by Giannini). The final assaults of the Peloritani do not have the desired effect. Fc Messina-Rende 1-2
