Cagliari-Ascoli 4-1

The twenty-ninth day of the Serie B championship opened Friday night at the Unipol Domus with Cagliari-Ascoli.

The hosts, who initially went into a disadvantage, completely turned the match around by imposing themselves 4-1. Great protagonist Lapadula who first tied the score and then signed the double. Mancosu (in his 100th center among professionals) and Zappa also scored.

The Scudetto won by Cagliari at the end of the 1969-70 season has remained in the history of Italian soccer. On the bench was Manlio Scopigno while the team’s star was Gigi Riva: the bomber scored 21 goals, boasting the title of top scorer for the third time in just four years. Riva ended his very long experience on the island in 1977, having scored something like 164 goals.
