Cagliari eye Pavoletti swoop

Marco Borriello is heading towards Spal, so Cagliari aim to replace him with Napoli outcast Leonardo Pavoletti.

Multiple sources suggest today that Borriello has played his last game in Sardinia following a row with Coach Massimo Rastelli.

Sky Sport Italia are confident he’s going towards Spal, despite interest also from Bologna and Genoa.

It’s possible the 35-year-old hitman will simply terminate his contract by mutual consent.

Spal favourites for Borriello

Marco Borriello is eager to leave Cagliari, according to multiple reports, with Spal, Bologna and Genoa interested.

The centre-forward just turned 35, but is still raring to go and scored 20 goals in 37 games for Cagliari last season, between Serie A and the Coppa Italia.

There were rumours of tension with Coach Massimo Rastelli and those stepped up several gears today.

According to Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia, Spal are the most likely destination for Borriello.

Tagliavento for Inter-Fiorentina

The referees have been announced for the first weekend of Serie A, with Paolo Tagliavento taking charge of Inter-Fiorentina.

Elsewhere, Michael Fabbri will run the rule over Napoli’s trip to Verona, with Pierpaolo Mariani entrusted with Crotone-Milan.

Coppa: Third Round shocks

There were more huge upsets in the Coppa Italia Third Round, as Perugia humiliated Benevento 4-0, Bologna were knocked out by Cittadella and Cagliari beat Palermo on penalties.

Bologna at least had the excuse of being down to 10 men for 85 minutes, as Simone Verdi foolishly got himself sent off for lashing out an elbow.

Benevento are new to Serie A, but their Coppa Italia adventure is already over for this season, as Serie B outfit Perugia earned a shock 4-0 away victory.

Coppa: 10-man Bologna out

Bologna crashed out of the Coppa Italia after a humiliating 3-0 home defeat to Cittadella, but Simone Verdi was sent off within five minutes.

It was a strong line-up from Coach Roberto Donadoni, but their Third Round tie was inevitably ruined almost as soon as it had begun.

Verdi lashed out with an elbow on Pezzi after just five minutes and a red card was the only option, especially as the Cittadella player then had to be substituted.
