Italian Serie C Cup, Rimini wins the derby: it ends 2 – 0 in Cesena

Round of 16 of the Italian Cup Serie C at the Manuzzi Stadium. Cesena hosts Rimini for a midweek non-league derby but teams and fans responded with a present: little turnover in the two teams and many supporters following the red and whites: more than 4000 in total present at the Orogel Stadium. In short, it may be the Italian Cup but a derby is always a derby. League leaders Cesena were determined not to disfigure themselves against their long-time rivals, while Rimini, fresh from the caporetto in October when they lost 5 – 2 against the Bianconeri, wanted to redeem themselves with six consecutive useful results in the league and an expected rebirth after a nightmare start .

The guests prevailed, deservedly winning a tense and fast-paced match with two goals, one from Iacoponi and the other from Lamesta.

FIRST HALF

1st Parties Rimini in red and white checkered shirt, Cesena in blue shirt.

3rd Cesena immediately attacks and earns the first corner of the match. He beats Berti, counters the defense and Rimini restarts with a sprint from Iacoponi who serves Ubaldi in the area, the defense clears in the corner. He beats Megelaitis then the defense rejects. Lively match in the stands and on the pitch

6th Second corner for Cesena, the defense releases immediately

RIMINI’S 8TH GOAL!!!! Ubaldi’s foray into the area serves Iacoponi who loads his right foot towards the spot and pierces Siano.

17th Corner for Rimini, beats Del Carro, Pietrangeli heads it wide.

18th Cesena very close to the goal with Berti shooting from inside the area, the ball slides out of nothing to Colombi’s left.

27th Colombi dives and clears a cross from the left. It is the image that crystallizes a match played at a very high pace by both sides.

36th Series of scrums in the Rimini area with no Cesena player managing to evade the red and whites, the defense is free and the guests breathe a sigh of relief

45°+ 1 Teams at rest, at half-time the red and whites are ahead by one to zero. A first half played at a high pace with few clear scoring opportunities on both sides. Rimini did well to manage the advantage.

SECOND HALF

1st Teams on the pitch for the second half. Rimini replaced Del Carro with Leoncini, Cesena Berti with Chiarello and David with Nannelli

7th Diagonal by Cernigoi very powerful from the left and out of nowhere to the left of Siano. Rimini dangerous.

16th Free kick from an interesting position for Cesena who wastes it, the ball is in Colombi’s arms

27th Giovannini from Cesena leaves due to injury after a clash with Leoncini. Coveri takes his place.

30th Miracle of Colombi! The red and white captain saved the result by diving on Chiarello’s shot from close range. Chiarello receives in the area and from an excellent position just in front of the goalkeeper he shoots into the corner but the visiting goalkeeper outdoes himself and even blocks the ball.

32° Rimini replaces Cernigoi with Lamesta

RIMINI’S 40th GOAL!!!! Lamesta flies towards Siani and pierces him with a perfect curling shot that lands to the right of the Cesena goalkeeper.

45th + 4th Rimini conquers Cesena and qualifies for the quarterfinals
