Today with Sampdoria the first of 19 finals. The two teams full of patches
CAGLIARI. A 19-game sprint begins today for Cagliari. There is no middle ground, to achieve salvation you need to put together at least 27 points, otherwise the ghost of the B series will materialize. The time for words is over and above all alibis and bonuses are over. When you only score ten points after the first part of the season, it’s best to shut up, put your head down and work. Hoping to redeem himself. The current market can lend a hand and the company has ready, after Lovato, other shots, but from today the march must be reversed. It is forbidden to return empty-handed from Genoa. The “survivors” will have to arm themselves with a scimitar, spend the last grain of energy on the field. Aware that a defeat against Sampdoria would be another blow.
Obligatory choices. Mazzarri will immediately send the newcomer Lovato onto the field in the three-man defense, ready to give his contribution to the rossoblù cause. In midfield, outside Nandez (he is in quarantine after the positivity at Covid, as well as awaiting the court case that overwhelmed him in the previous rounds), Bellanova and Lykogiannis will be the outsiders; Grassi the central pivot, Marin and Deiola the half wings. In attack the choice is obvious: Pavoletti-Joao Pedro. Keita is in retreat with Senegal awaiting the hatred in the African Cup of Nations. On the bench there will be Ladinetti (first call-up after the injury) and Galliano, who has just returned from loan to Avellino. The module will be the one the technician prefers (3-5-2-), certainly the most tested.
The opponents. For the coach Roberto D’Aversa the situation is not simple between positive Covid (Falcone and Augello), the farewell of Adrien Silva, the absence of Colley involved in the African Cup with Gambia and the injuries of Damsgaard and Verre. «We must think about who we are – he said -, about who we have been. And not on what we do not have between injuries, suspensions and departures that can annoy ». The coach should recover Ekdal, one of the ex of the race together with Murru. «We have to start again as we finished. Let’s go out on the pitch to play two hundred percent ».
The market. Calafiori remains on standby but next week the operation should go through, as well as that of Goldaniga (outright from Sassuolo for 400 thousand euros), as soon as the defender returns negative and can carry out medical examinations. The pressing on Turin continues for Baselli. There would now also be the player’s ok. An important step forward. The exchange with Genoa Godin-Biraschi is not a simple negotiation. Especially because the Uruguayan central defender could yield to the court of Atletico Mineiro, willing to offer him a profitable contract. On Caceres there is not only Salernitana, in the last few hours Parma has also come forward.
