What happened at the end of Cesena-Olbia, at the Orogel Stadium Dino Manuzzi, was sensational. Invasion and violence complete with a punch thrown against a footballer.
Punch in the face of the player after the pitch invasion
Lacasadic reports that one of the spectators entered the pitch at full speed from the stands and headed towards the Olbia goalkeeper Rinaldi and hurled a punch straight to the face.
A moment of great tension on the pitch. A truly unexpected situation in an already very tight match that ended 1-0.
Security blocks the invader
According to what the site reports, it would be the father of Juventus striker Cristian Shpendi. What would have pushed the man to this reckless gesture would be an alleged harsh intervention by the Sardinian number one against his son who caused a cut to his head.
The goalkeeper had first urged the attacker to get up, then, seeing him bleeding, he apologised. The invader was blocked by the staff and taken back from the field.
