Serie B: Carpi-Padova completed

Carpi-Padova finally concluded with a 1-1 result six months after the Serie B tie was abandoned due to floodlight failure.

The game had been suspended on August 31 after 26 minutes with the scoreline still at 0-0.

Under Italian rules, it resumed today where it had left off and Carpi took the lead before half-time through Memushaj’s nutmeg.

Padova equalised on the hour mark when Improta burst through the middle and combined with Vantaggiato.

This result takes Carpi up to 39 points, on a par with Siena, while Padova catch Cittadella on 23.

Padova had asked to receive a 3-0 win because of the floodlight failure, but tests showed Carpi were not at fault because the equipment was correctly maintained.

Investigators never found the cause of the blackout and proposed theories of sabotage.
