Disastrous precedents at the Bentegodi in Verona. The double semi-final of the 1984 Cup is indelible
A challenge with an antique flavor. Verona-Bari, scheduled for tomorrow evening at 18.00 on the Bentegodi field, it has a taste d’amarcord not trivial. The charm of the encounters against the Scala family, a good sixty-eight in total, is lost in the maze of time. Thirty-two challenges alone in Veneto, with a decidedly budget negative: eighteen hits for the yellow and blue, eleven even and only three Apulian victories.
The two teams will meet tomorrow after five years. The last time ended 2-0 for Verona, with Pazzini and Zuculini who conquered the San Nicola. The first leg of that championship, 2016/17, ended 1-0 for the Venetians, once again thanks to the network of Crazy. It is curious to note how Cioffi’s team has been in the positive streak for nine meetings, of which the last eight are as many successes. The last one evra Bari al Bentegodi dates back to 1999, when in the then Serie A Osmanovski pushed the ball to the bottom of the bag for the1-0 the final.
Several precedents relating to the sole Italian Cup. Six matches in total so far, with a win of the Bari, a draw and four Veronese statements. Unforgettable the double semifinal of the edition 1983/84with Bari – then a militant in Serie C – able to overcome the preliminary and especially the summer round Juve And Fiorentinarespectively in the second round and quarter-finals (both matches were played in the home and away).
The first leg, played at Della Vittoria on 13 June 1984, ended 2-1 for guests (militants in A). Jordan and the former Iorio brought Verona the double advantage, before the goal of the flag of Giuseppe Galluzzo in a stadium filled in every order of place. On the return, on June 16, a brace from Nanu Galderisi and Volpati closed the dispute. Once again i cockerels tfound the goal of the flag, with Lele Messina, coming out of the competition with a very high head. The trophy was then raised there Romewho beat Hellas in the final at the Olimpico.
