“A very difficult match but we will do everything we can to win”: President Maurizio Coruna has scheduled the first leg against Edelfox Grosseto on Wednesday 30 March, the third to last match of the regular season.
New Mirco Bertolucci line-up from the victory they won over bottom rear Matera at Vecchio Mercato, a victory that nonetheless gave a new impetus to the Rossoneri rankings by placing them in seventh place, qualifying them sportingly for the play-offs and with the goal of sixth place, which means post-season without going through through the playoffs.
The opponent on Wednesday night is Edilfox Grosseto: Team Maremma is going through a negative moment of the season. For Baji’s team, which is ninth in the overall standings with 30 points, a victory is necessary so that it does not fall too far, risking the playoffs as in the last tournament. Maremmans returns from two consecutive defeats, away to Montebello 6-5 and a home defeat to Sandrigo 1 to 0. The Euroleague.
“This is the worst time to face this team. It comes from two defeats in a row, so going home now means finding an environment that wants to get back to scoring points, also taking into account the expectations the company had on this team at the start of the season. This is the Maremma team. A well-organized team – President Corona continues – an opponent who must be approached with caution and challenged very calmly without having the enthusiasm to go in search of an immediate match ban. The quality of his team 2.
Personally I have a lot of respect for the opponents we meet – Corona concludes – but on Wednesday we can’t go wrong with our approach, for us the match against Grosseto is the cornerstone of trying to win sixth place. This is the moment where we can’t make mistakes, here we go. The reward has already been played at Monza, now we have to be humble and united and try to bring the result home.”
