Leoni 's marking error ruined the match for Sampdoria who were caught by Brescia in the final draw. But the defender should never have entered the pitch : the Blucerchiati's story is incredible and is the result of a fatal misunderstanding between Andrea Pirlo, the medical staff and Piccini.

In the 80th minute the team coached by the former Juventus player was leading 1-0 and could already see victory after the referee's whistle. He should have managed the lead calmly, but a minor injury to Piccini set off the alarm on the bench: the player had ended up on the ground after a foul, but his condition would not have prevented him from finishing the match.

The medical staff immediately arrived on the pitch to help him, a great opportunity to lose a few precious seconds and let the clock tick down. The defender made the most of the opportunity and, in addition to staying on the ground for a few moments longer than necessary, asked the medical staff to take it calmly. But it was precisely that word that triggered the uproar.

A sensational misunderstanding that they only realized after the incident : in the 94th minute the substitute was the protagonist of the big mistake that cost Sampdoria the victory, a surreal situation that Pirlo also spoke about after the match, revealing the background.

The coach explained in detail what happened in those seconds: He said “calm”, the doctors understood “change” , at this level we cannot afford these errors, on and off the pitch, which force you to put 17-year-olds on the field (referring to Leoni) who are not ready for this type of match. Piccini was fine, he just said “calm” to waste time .”
