The club from Salerno has survived so many adversities - and could cope with a bad football performance even. But in turn...
Us Salernitana, who only rose to Serie A for the third time after 1947 and 1998 last year, had already been completely written off this season in the meantime. But with repeated achievements, the men from the port city of Naples had bitten back to the Italian Oberhaus - and finally, above all, the two relegated relegated Venice and CFC Genoa left behind.
Now this Sunday in the course of the 38th and last match day, the home game against Udinese Calcio, for which it was nothing more sporty, was up to two points ahead of Cagliari Calcio. The relegation was accessible from his own pieces, but the team around Joker Ribery could not - breath cake was announced: because Udine won 4-0 against a weak host \ - even more goals would have been possible.
after a few years: Cagliari has to go down
In the end, however, it was still allowed to cheer loudly. Why? Because traditional club Cagliari Calcio did not get out of 0: 0 in the parallel game against the bottom of Venice. The Sardin had some chances, but simply did not put the ball under the network of the partly strong Keepers Mäenpää. More and more fans from Salerno are increasingly realized on the cell phone, as well as the players who can now look forward to another Series A year.
Meanwhile, deep grief and plenty of tears at Cagliari Calcio. The club around seasoned players like Joao Pedro or Keita Baldé has actually relegated for the first time since 2014/15 - and that on this curious evening, where everything was provided for the Sardin.
