Siena-Cesena 0-0: the third place in the tables secured
Cesena FC concludes the regular season in third place thanks to the tie on Siena’s turf: the B&W squad will thus begin the first round national playoffs with an away leg on Sunday 8th May, followed by the return match on Thursday 12th May at the Orogel Stadium Dino Manuzzi.
At the Franchi Stadium, Viali’s boys are in real danger just once in the first half, on the deflection by Gonnelli who risks an own goal (crossbar) after Steffè wasting the opportunity to take the lead. In the second half, Candela shots hitting the top of the crossbar, only this time of the opponents’ goal, and right in recovery time, on the feet of Bortolussi another chance arises to finally strike and dispel the taboo of scoring in Siena, missing since the 1967/68 season. Alas, Lanni wards off. That's okay all the same.
