“The form is the only certainty we have”

Only one certainty from which to start again: the module. Giacomo Filippi is adamant that the current physiognomy of the team is not the problem of this difficult start to the season of Palermo, who will play tomorrow at home against Campobasso knowing that he has no more margin for error. But the coach is determined to continue with the defense at 3. On the men who will go on the field, however, some doubts remain: Buttaro goes towards confirmation, while Lancini should find his place in the center of the defense. Odjer could have a chance, while Floriano could start from the first minute in attack. The match scheduled at the Barbera at 6 pm will be broadcast both on the Eleven Sports platform and by Sky Sport on channel 257.

The technician from Partinico explained why for him the current game score is untouchable: “We are talking about the only certainty we have – he underlined – because the numbers we see prove us right. If the numbers prove us wrong about the goals conceded, you would be right. Since the numbers say the exact opposite, I don’t take away my certainties from the teams. Palermo is the team that suffers fewer shots in Group C and that recovers the most balls. Today we are as good as we are and we will insist on this module that we know how to interpret well “. Filippi appeared confident about the mental condition of the team and his desire for redemption: “After Monterosi it is normal that you face each match with the right desire to do well and make you forget an opaque performance. Every game is decisive and you play to win: sometimes you succeed in others unless it is due to the merits of the opponents or our demerit. Away from home we were not very effective but I am convinced that tomorrow the team will have a clear mind to win the game The Palermo coach then analyzed the issue linked to the poor away performance of his team: “This is an analysis we did with the team – he explained – to understand why the same football we do is not expressed in away games. in home. We have expressed our thoughts: I am convinced that from this analysis we came out more determined and want to demonstrate to others and to us that we want to play with a calm head, do what we know how to do and show what we train on the pitch. Doing the things we know how to do, regardless of the opponent. Then it is normal that we will adapt the strategy based on the characteristics of the team. My boys will do well and play the game right. We are not afraid of winning “. Regarding the team’s play and the technical continuity with last year which failed, Filippi expressed himself as follows: “I tried to explain this involution – he said – we are finding uncertainties in proposing our strong points which were now tested. I would not like fear and insecurity to have taken over the boys, which must not happen. The boys train very well and at high rates, during training it is a pleasure to see them doing the simple things and the games we train on. I asked the guys to play without inhibitions and do what they know how to do: they are good and the new signings have shown that they have given a big hand both in the locker room and on the pitch, we have to start from this. Filippi appeared to be a possibility regarding the inclusion of a pure attacking midfielder from the beginning: “During the week we choose the solution that we consider best. In the end it wasn’t like that but I don’t feel like saying that Luperini did badly in that role because he is a player who gives physicality, insertions and presence. I will decide based on the opponent, the squad offers a wide choice ”. Filippi then focused on Odjer, who has entered the field well in the last few matches and Silipo: “Moses is a serious professional, he trains with a thousand, he is an additional holder, he will find a lot of space during the season. Andrea is training well, he is a player who creates imbalances for his opponents, we know he will be able to give us a big hand “. HERE PALERMO Filippi has all the squad at his disposal net of Accardi: Buttaro’s confirmation on the right side of defense is increasingly probable after the two excellent previous performances. Lancini should find his place in the center of the rearguard: Perrotta will play with Marconi a jersey for the role of central left. For the rest we must expect some rotation: Odjer paws for a starting shirt in midfield; possible the use of Almici and Giron on the side races as in the first outings. In attack Floriano could find his place in the starting eleven. HERE CAMPOBASSO Except for the long-term inmate Ladu, the rossoblù coach Cudini will have the full squad. Up to now the Molise have always played with the same form, the 4-3-3, turning very few men but it is likely that the scenario will change. Possible alternation on the right wing between the distrusted Sbardella and Fabriani: in attack Vitali and Emmausso undermine Liguori and Di Francesco for the places next to Rossetti. In midfield, one between Tenkorang and Candellori could rest with Giunta ready to take the field from the first minute. Probable formations PALERMO (3-4-2-1) : Pelagotti; Buttaro, Lancini, Marconi; Almici, Odjer, De Rose, Giron; Floriano, Fella, Brunori. CAMPOBASSO (4-3-3): Raccichini; Fabriani, Dalmazzi, Magri, Vanzan; Candellori, Bontà, Tenkorang; Di Francesco, Rossetti; Emmausso.
