While AC Milan regained the throne of Serie A a little earlier in the evening, the 9 p.m. matches in Italy concerned the race for maintenance. The Salernitana (17th) of Franck Ribéry, who entered the game and had its importance this season, received Udinese (13th) having two points ahead of Cagliari first relegated (18th) and who moved on the ground of Venice (20th) whose future in Serie B is already recorded.
In Salerno, everything was not going well for the Grenats who found themselves facing a Udinese team who had not come to make up the numbers, in particular the goalkeeper Danielle Padelli (11 saves). The promoted thus conceded the opening of the score quickly on an achievement of the former Barcelonan Gerard Delofeu (6th). At the break, the hosts were even down 3 goals to 0, and the score could have been even tougher if Belec had not saved Pereyra’s penalty (45+5). The former Juventus player will finally score his team’s 4th goal on the hour mark, angering the Grenats supporters and interrupting the match for a few minutes. For its part, despite numerous attempts (31 shots, 7 on target), Cagliari could not find the net to take advantage of the defeat of its competitor from a distance and was therefore relegated. The Rossoblù will play in Serie B while the Salernitana will play a second season in Serie A.
