At the PalaBasletta (8.30 pm) a sharp challenge with the Milanese, captain Rossi: “Finally there will be the public, an important match”
Elachem Vigevano debuts in the first official match of the season, hosting Legnano tonight at PalaBasletta (two-ball at 20.30) for the dry match of the first round of the Serie B Super Cup.
After the win against Cremona in a friendly on Wednesday evening, the ducals are looking for their first success in an official match, and coach Paolo Piazza awaits significant confirmation after the good sensations of the preseason.
«Even if the matches that really matter are in October, when the championship starts – explains captain Filippo Rossi – we want to win on our debut in an official match, finally in front of our fans. It will also be an important test of approach and preparation for the championship. We will have to enter the field first of all with the right spirit and with the desire to sacrifice. At this moment the mental attitude counts, but also the ability to manage workloads avoiding drops ».
For Rossi there is another novelty that has the flavor of a return to the past: after having played all last season in the role of great forward, in this one the captain of Elachem has returned to play the role of the play who commands the game and dictates the times. «I’m happy – he says – even if I still have to work to adapt to the role, becoming familiar with the various situations that can happen to me in the game. But I didn’t mind playing big forward either. But I am at the service of the group and of what the coach indicates ». Last night, meanwhile, the pre-sale of tickets closed: 504 seats were available in the stands of the Vigevano building (the ticket office is not scheduled to open today); to access the Basletta it is mandatory to have a Green pass. –
