First half

End of the first half, Catania-Padova 2-1: after the initial disadvantage, the rossoazzurri recovered with Di Carmine’s penalty and at the end of the first half even found the overtaking goal with Cicerelli. Goal that allows the biancoscudati to be caught again.

8.28pm – The two teams preceded by the referees enter the pitch to start the match.

8.20pm – Exactly ten minutes left until Mr. Nicolini’s kick-off.

7.55 pm – For Padova, this is the thirty-first participation in the Serie C Italian Cup and on two occasions in its glorious history they have raised the trophy to the sky: first success in the 1979/80 sporting season in the final against Salernitana (first leg -3 in Campania and return 4-0 in Veneto) and second triumph in 2021/22 thanks to the victory in the last match against Sudtirol (0-0 in the first leg at Euganeo and return with biancoscudata victory at Druso, 1- 0 with marker Jelenic).

7.51pm – There are eleven precedents between the two teams on Etna: 7 victories for Catania, 3 draws and, finally, a success for Padova. The last match in Sicily dates back to 17 September 2008 and the round of 32 of the Major Italian Cup was played at the Massimino (the winner would have met Juventus in the round of 16). Catania, at the time led by Walter Zenga, asserted the two categories of difference compared to Padova and easily passed the round with the result of 4-0 (Morimoto scored with a brace, Sabato and Dica), despite having fielded field several second lines. Venetians and Sicilians will therefore face each other again after more than a decade since the last time. The only success in Padua dates back to the 1930s and coincides with the first confrontation between the two teams.

7.48pm – Padova restarts from the absurd victory of the first leg. 2-1 the biancoscudato success at Euganeo last March 19th with goals from Palombi and Crisetig opening the scoring. The most classic goal of the ex scored towards the end by Monaco took care of reopening the double comparison. Entertainment on the pitch which was unfortunately accompanied by clashes between fans which led the sports judge to have the return match played at the Massimino behind closed doors.

7.45pm – Dear readers of Padova Goal, good evening from Riccardo Pirrotta! Welcome to the live text of Catania-Padova, a match valid for the second leg final of the 51st edition of the Coppa Italia Serie C.
