Verona, paw for the Europa League: 3-2 against Parma in comeback


Emilian advantage with Kulusevski, then equal of Di Carmine and nets of Zaccagni, Gagliolo and Pessina

In the end it is Verona to cheer. At Bentegodi he wins 3-2 in the “playoff” against Parma with whom he shared the eighth place in the standings and approaches Milan that draws with Spal: 43 points against 42, those that are enough to be able to stop talking about salvation and start without too much embarrassment to mention Europe. After the long Covid stop, Juric’s team (this time disqualified) had appeared less incisive, but tonight, thanks above all to a great second half, it returned to express determination and play.

Tiring start for the Gialloblù

It was the Emilians who entered the game better: they frighten Silvestri after less than two minutes with a shot from distance by Gagliolo and in the 14th minute they find the advantage with Kulusevski, who jumps three men and puts his left foot to perfection. The Verona struggles, it takes 40 minutes to make itself dangerous for the first time in the parts of Sepe, with Rrahmani who heads forward on the crossbar. A sudden rush of adrenaline that is good for you. The Gialloblù continue to attack and at 46 ‘Di Carmine suffers a foul by Bruno Alves in the area: Valeri has no doubts and assigns the penalty that Di Carmine himself transforms.

Hard fight for seventh place

We return to the changing rooms with an extra motivation, given that AC Milan are under two goals with Spal (but then they will draw). Verona sends three fresh players to the pitch, including Zaccagni in place of Di Carmine. And it is precisely him at 54 ‘to bring his lead with a right from the edge. It does not last long. The stakes are too high and Parma will not give up: at 64 ‘Gagliolo is equal on Silvestri’s short rejection. The game becomes very lively, with continuous reversals in front and occasions on both sides (Verre, Kulusevski). To decide is the network of Pessina, freed to perfection by Verre, to decide the match and bring Verona one step away from Europe.
