Forfeit of at least nine rossoblù including Nandez while among the Bolognese they will skip game 11 of the first team
CAGLIARI. Cagliari and Bologna will return to the field tomorrow 11 January in the postponement set for 2045 at the Unipol Arena, Entrame with patches given the many absences determined by Covid, injuries and summoning to the African Cup.
Cagliari. A training session yesterday Sunday instead of the race. No Unipol Domus but Asseminello, the Rossoblu sports center. Against Bologna it will once again be the Cagliari of the young and counted men. Nandez is still out for Covid: even yesterday no session with the rest of the group. And, at this point, not even a negative swab at the last minute could bring him back to the field since, between holidays and viruses, he hasn’t trained with the team for ten days. Ceppitelli is growing, but he too is practically out.
There remains some hope for the call-up, but it will certainly not be in the starting eleven against Bologna. Yesterday some progress, but the Umbrian central defender still had a training apart if. And this, with the game at the door, is not a good sign. Ceppitelli has also started running again. But perhaps it is already too late to get back into the game after the last-minute forfeit against Sampdoria.
Men numbered and difficulty filling the bench. Rog, Strootman, Walukiewicz and Ceter still on the infirmary list. Oliva unavailable and Faragó sold, there are also no outgoing players like Godin and Caceres. Plus Keita, today making his debut in the African Cup. Compared to the match against Sampdoria there will be Dalbert, stopped in Genoa by the disqualification.
Bologna. After five days of quarantine imposed by the ASL, Bologna returns to train, which this afternoon will leave with a charter flight to Cagliari. Viola, Dominguez and Van Hooijdonk are also at work, who have been negativized by Covid. The positives Hickey, Medel, Molla, Vignato and Santander remain in isolation, the latter blocked in Paraguay as he was infected at home during the Christmas holidays.
The list of absent in Cagliari for Sinisa Mihajlovic, however, does not stop there. Meanwhile, the club has communicated three other positive players: they are Wisdom Amey, Boton Bartha and Kacper Urbanski, young players of the Primavera who had been added to the first team in view of the match with Inter which was then skipped, following the 8 positives. Out also the injured Kingsley and Schouten, just returned from Holland, as well as Mbaye and Barrow in the Africa Cup.
The list of unavailable should also include Samson and Soumaoro: the provision of the ASL in fact had 5 days of quarantine for the team group and 10 for the players who had just started the vaccination cycle, and the two (formerly ‘no vax’) should be the ones who will have to observe another five days off. Confirmation will come from the squad list. (HANDLE).
