Redeem Taranto’s opaque performance and give an important demonstration against an opponent who is now a rival also in the league. Giacomo Filippi has clear ideas on what is the value assumed by tomorrow’s match against Monopoli scheduled at Barbera at 3pm (and streamed on Eleven Sports).
Filippi returned to last Saturday’s performance in Puglia and to the choices made during the match in progress: “We worked with the team – he explained – analyzing what went wrong and working on it by virtue of finding our certainties in sight as soon as possible. of an important match like the one that awaits us. At a certain point in the race we lost our distance and balance: we worked on it in these two days ”. The rosanero coach expects a reaction from the team: “I expect compactness, the desire to defend and attack the goalkeeper in ten plus and to give their soul, which the boys have always done but individually and not as a team” The coach then stated that he considers the Coppa Italia a goal and that he considers this week, which also includes the match against Catanzaro, as important in demonstrating the team’s value: “There is no better opportunity – he said – to meet the team. first of the class. Monopoli works very well, they do not invent anything and doing simple things today is rare. This week we will meet a strong team and an even stronger team. The Italian Cup is a goal to be achieved: we will do everything by fielding the best team “. With regard to the training choices, the coach announced that there will be some news, underlining how the Cup is an opportunity to get those who have played less into condition: “The Italian Cup serves to break in the players – he stressed – who find little space. The boys don’t have to prove anything to me because I know their value and it helps to play, put minutes in the legs and find the right conditions ”. In tomorrow’s starting eleven the second goalkeeper Massolo will surely find space: “Right you play because he trains well and is a valuable goalkeeper”. The coach, on the other hand, ruled out possible defensive changes in the form given the department emergency in the Catanzaro perspective: “I am not thinking about defense 4. Lancini and Peretti will be missing but Buttaro will return and we will soon find Accardi too. We must insist on the dynamics on which we have worked: it is not a game that makes us lose our certainties. The rosanero coach also talked about Monopoli, at this moment first in the class with full points in group C, which the rosanero had already faced in a friendly match by winning 1-0: “The distance compared to then – said Filippi – is temporal but Monopoli already in that game gave signs of solidity and compactness, so we were good patients in being able to open spaces even though we were not always able to find the gap on that occasion. Monopoli is a team that works and knows how to stay on the pitch: it is a test that presents difficulties that we should be good at crossing “. HERE PALERMO The coach has already announced that he wants to give space to those who have played less at this juncture by choice or due to force majeure. In addition to the already announced Massolo, it seems extremely probable that players like Valente and Fella will be employed from the first minute, not yet at the top. The disqualification in the championship makes it almost certain that Lancini will be employed: it is likely that in the role of right central defense one will find space between Buttaro, from this week also available in the championship and Marong. HERE MONOPOLIES Fresh from the success against Messina, Alberto Colombo’s team could present themselves in a reworked set-up in view of the championship match against Avellino. Probably the use of the match-winner on Sunday evening Grandolfo in the current game instead of the very titular Starita. Possible space in midfield for the former rosanero Langella and Viteritti. The probable formations Palermo (3-4-2-1) Massolo; Buttaro, Lancini, Perrotta; Almici, De Rose, Odjer, Valente; Fella, Silipo; Soleri Monopoli (3-5-2) Guido; Mercadante, De Santis, Bizzotto; Novella, Langella, Piccinni, Vassallo, Viteritti; Grandolfo, D’Agostino
