Dramatic game for Venice. Promotion to Serie A secured a goal in extra time
At home, the Venezia team was losing 25 minutes after the goal of Frederico Bruya. The situation became more complicated in the 35th minute, when the hosts had to play in the double after the second yellow, and thus the red card for Pasquale Mazzucci. The Venice team defended itself skillfully in weakness. The referee added four minutes to the base time. In the 93rd minute, Ricardo Bucalon overcame the opponent’s goalkeeper and hit the net, equalizing the score 1: 1, giving Venice a promotion to Serie A.
The club will play in the First Division for the first time until the 2001-02 season. Previously, Venezia was better in matches than Chievo (3-2 after extra time), and in the semi-finals they won on aggregate against Lecce (1–0 at home and 1-1 at home).
The great success of Venice was determined in a unique way by its chief, Duncan L. Niedrauer, who jumped into the Venice Canal.
