Emmanuel Gyasi’s Spezia Cruise To Serie B Playoff Final After Heroics Against Verona
LISTEN AUG 12, 2020

Winger Emmanuel Gyasi’s impressive exploits for Spezia Calcio has been key for the team this evening to earn the side a 3-1 win against Chievo Verona to propel them to the final of the Serie B play-offs.

After finishing 3rd on the standings of the Italian Serie B at the end of the 2019/2020 football season, the Ligurians are fighting for promotion to the Serie A in the playoffs.

In the first leg of the knockout phase of the playoffs against Chievo Verona at Stadio M. A. Bentegodi last Saturday, Spezia Calcio lost 2-0.

With that deficit in mind, they hosted the opponent at the Stadio Alberto Picco today with the sole aim of overturning that result with a winning margin of at least 2 goals to ensure they have a chance to sail through to the finals.

At the end of a pulsating encounter, Emmanuel Gyasi and his Spezia Calcio side have gotten the job done.

A first-half equalizer from Andrey Galabinov plus second-half goals from Giulio Maggiore and Mbala Nzola put the home team in a strong position with a late strike from Maxime Leverbe serving as the only consolation goal for the away team.

Eventually, the match ended 3-1 in favour of Spezia Calcio and 3-3 on aggregate. However, Spezia is through to the final as a result of finishing higher on the league standings at the end of the season.

The team is just one game away from promotion to the Serie A and will face the winner of the tie between Frosinone and Pordenone in the finals of the Serie B playoffs.
