Serie C: Benevento beats Torres 1-0 in the first leg of the playoff quarter-finals – L'Unione Sarda English

The first round was won by Benevento: 1-0 with a goal from Talia just when Torres was dominating. The Sassari team tries in vain for a draw, so they will necessarily have to win on Saturday at the “Vanni Sanna” in the return match.

Torres is immediately authoritative and presses high. In the 4th minute Fischnaller looks for a wide triangle with Scotto but the return pass is slightly long. On the first corner, from the right, Mastinu shoots high into the area where Antonelli bursts in but is unable to lower the trajectory. In the 11th minute Mastinu crosses from the left, Fischnaller meets the ball and misses it and Zecca hits a defender from behind but without hitting the goal. In the quarter of an hour, Scotto’s free kick passes through the barrier: it flies and repels Paleari.

Benevento’s first real action unlocks the result: Talia accelerates on the right, the rossoblù are out of position, she passes between Mastinu and Giorico, enters the area and scores powerfully at the top corner. The reaction of the rossoblù leads to Giorico’s shot, but a defender blocks it and puts it in the corner. Benevento came close to doubling their lead in the 38th minute: Improta made a good start on the edge of offside in the area, freed himself from Dametto with an aerial dribble but shot wide. Immediately afterwards Lanini sprints to the left and serves Ciciretti alone, but he started offside and the goal is invalid.

In the 45th minute, great vertical pass from Mastinu for Zecca on the right who sprints well, but his central cross is intercepted by a defender.

In the second half, Improta tries immediately: he blocks Zaccagno. In the 57th minute Mastinu puts it in from the right and Ruocco heads well but the ball is slightly high. Double change for the left side of Torres with Kujabi and Liviero. Meanwhile, Ruocco tries again from outside in the 60th minute. Incredible a minute later from a scrum in the Campania area and Scotto fails to deflect from two meters for the goal.

Benevento first brings in a defender and then a midfielder to switch to 4-4-2. Very big chance in the 92nd minute with the new substitute Goglino who in the area at the back “spoils” for Diakite who is unable to give strength with his header and Paleari flies and blocks near the intersection. In the 95th minute, Liviero’s cross from the left, the goalkeeper returns it badly with his fists but Kujabi doesn’t take advantage and finishes lopsided.
