Cagliari-Frosinone, the match

First Team - 29/10/2023

A stunning 4-3 victory for the Rossoblù over Frosinone, overturning three goals in the last 20 minutes in a euphoric atmosphere. An ecstatic day to build upon and continue the fight to achieve the objective.

Cagliari starts strong, pushing with vigor and quality, inspiring the crowd. However, at the 8th minute, Soulé makes the first breakthrough, highlighting the challenge posed by the former Juventus player. In the 17th and 20th minutes, the Sardinians create beautiful plays, but the final passes go astray. At the 22nd minute, Soulé opens the scoring with a left-footed shot, capitalizing on a stolen ball in the offensive zone. A penalty at the 27th minute: VAR calls Pairetto for a handball, but Mancousu’s penalty hits the crossbar.

At the 35th minute, Scuffet saves on Soulé’s free-kick, who at the 37th minute doubles by slaloming through Cagliari’s defense. A reaction with Jankto (a narrowly missed shot at the 40th minute), then Mancosu hits the post at the 43rd minute with a header. Just before that, there’s disappointment for Nandez, who, while tracking back defensively, feels discomfort in the flexor of his left leg and leaves amidst applause but in tears.

The second half sees Pavoletti coming on for Deiola, then Mancosu’s header narrowly misses. At the 47th minute, Brescianini makes it 3-0 with a precise left-footed shot. The climb becomes steeper; Ranieri opts for Oristanio, Viola, and Azzi, replacing Mancosu, Luvumbo, and Jankto, hoping for a late comeback.

At the 71st minute, Oristanio scores a beautifully curled goal to make it 1-3, following Makoumbou’s header saved off the goal line a few minutes earlier.

At the 75th minute, Makoumbou makes it 2-3 with a great right-footed shot into the corner, igniting the Domus and sparking hope until the end. Cagliari pushes and believes, Pavoletti brought down in the box on Turati’s exit: VAR overturns the penalty awarded by Pairetto because the goalkeeper touches the ball first and then collides with the captain.

A sensational ending unfolds: Pavoletti scores with a header from a corner kick. Then, at the last moment, the decisive 4-3 header.
