Only in Serie A: The winner nobody wanted

When substitute Tuta scored the winner for Venezia against Bari in January 1999, he was perplexed to find both sets of players furious with him.

Words: Martin Mork

Brazilian forward Moacir Bastos Tuta, fresh even for the Venezia faithful, emerged from the scrum to make a name for himself in the mistiest of penalty areas at the Stadio Pierluigi Penzo. He nodded a free-kick home in the dying seconds and came out of the scrimmage thumping his chest whilst he ran to celebrate the 2-1 win with the home fans – on his own.

Football Italia calcio quiz - Serie A 1997-98

Think you know your Capocannoniere from your catenaccio? Test your Serie A knowledge with Football Italia’s calcio quiz, 1997-98 edition!

1997-98 was the year Ronaldo came to Serie A – but the Brazil star couldn’t bring the Scudetto to San Siro. Instead, after a titanic battle with Inter, it was Juventus celebrating.

The Old Lady and the Nerazzurri went toe-to-toe for the duration of the season but arguably the pivotal moment came in April, when Juve beat their Milanese rivals in a game so controversial it led to a debate – and a scuffle – in the Chamber of Deputies. It wasn’t the first or last title race to go down in infamy.
