A struggling team at the bottom of the Serie A standings travel to play A.C. Milan knowing that a defeat will see them relegated. Staying in a hotel ahead of Sunday's game, the various players experience the city in different ways and the club's regular goalkeeper is injured, requiring his place to be taken by the inexperienced, young Marini. Meanwhile Gino Bardi, the club's star striker, is approached via his girlfriend to deliberately throw the game in exchange for a large sum of money.

Despite her pressure, he refuses, but his performance in the first half is poor and the team are trailing by two goals. The team's fans mistakenly believe that he has indeed been bought off. In the interval the team's doctor informs him that tests done the day before show him to be seriously ill and advises him not to return to the pitch, but Bardi insists on going out for the second half. He spearheads the team's recovery, coming from behind to lead 4-3 before he collapses and has to be stretched off. In the final moments Milan are awarded a penalty but Marini, who has had a bad game, miraculously saves it to win the game.

Bardi, recuperating in hospital, is visited by Mariolina the club's secretary who is much better suited to him than his previous girlfriend.
