Serie B playout: Bari wins 3-0 and is safe, Ternana is relegated

Bari needed half an achievement to stay in Serie B. After the 1-1 draw at San Nicola, the Apulians needed to win the second leg of the playout at Ternana. Federico Giampaolo’s team outclassed their opponents. Bari managed to take the lead just before half-time thanks to a real feat by captain Di Cesare, who scored on his 41st birthday. In the second half the Apulians rounded off the result. Ricci scored the second goal, then came the final 3-0 goal in favor of Bari scored by Sibilli. After three seasons, Ternana returned to Serie C. Bari, on the other hand, after coming close to promotion to Serie A last season, managed to save themselves, thus maintaining their ranking. The match was played in front of 11 thousand spectators.

Worth highlighting is the tale of captain Di Cesare, who in a press conference in recent days had become emotional when recalling his six years at Bari, from the amateurs to the Serie A he missed by a whisker. Last night could have been his last career game. On his 41st birthday, the Apulian captain scored one of the best goals scored in all these years: a half-volley on a ball coming from a corner. Immediately after the goal, Di Cesare ran to the other side of the pitch to celebrate under the sector where his fans were positioned.
