|Gardanne's attack meets with some success|
On the other side of Caldiero Verdier was having more success. Led by the 2nd Line and 5th Light his troops overwhelmed Tolstoy's artillery and pushed back the 1st battalion of the New Ingermanland regiment. The 2nd battalion tried to stem the tide but was also driven back with heavy losses. Their stand, although costly, did give Orlov's battalions enough time to advance and block any further progress by Verdier's men. In addition the Frenchmen came under fire from the artillery on the ridge and began to suffer heavy casualties.

|Orlov's men deploy and await the attack|
Lothringen's men were now contesting Pino's for control of Gambion. Although he had superior numbers Lothringen could not deploy them to advantage and had to resort to a head on attack.
Massena now began to move forward his reserves. Duhesme's eltes advanced up the road towards Caldiero, whilst D'Espagne's cavalry moved to the right to support Verdier. Here they were joined by the remnants of Lasalle's men. Mesenzov's men on the ridge began to look vulnerable.
