The former Pavia and Cremona has strengthened the Milanese who are now quite fierce Donadoni sets the times: “We have to set the pace for the match.” On the pitch at 9pm
A more difficult transfer than it may seem today for Riso Scotti who on the field of Vanzaghello (ball at two o’clock at 21) faces Mamy Oleggio in the penultimate first leg.
In spite of a ranking that sees the Milanese team in penultimate place in the standings with 4 victories, Oleggio fought against all opponents, also conquering the important scalps of the two Leghorns. As if that were not enough, Oleggio has recently signed the former Pavia e Cremona Momo Tourè. «We have to start strong – explains Alessio Donadoni – focus the game on our characteristics, manage the game and the rest will come by itself. We will meet our friend Momo, he is a great player. We will prepare the game to limit him, without forgetting the others. And yes, Toure, thanks to the absence due to injury of the play holder De Ros, immediately took possession of the cockpit and will try to play the script of the former player with a poisoned tooth ». De Ros (12.4 points and 3.4 assists per game), second year of militancy in the red and white and great protagonist of the home victory with Livorno is struggling with an injury that forced him to miss the last match and is in doubt for this evening. Among the outsiders promises Omar Seck from Varese (5 points in 16 ‘on the parquet) who starts from the bench with 2000 Michele Romano (3.4 points per game). The small forward Fabio Giampieri (1993, extensive experience between Senigallia and Jesi, third scorer of the team with 11.5 points and 32% in the arc) and his alter ego Andrea Del Debbio (6.8 plus 5.3 rebounds) contribute to the perimeter rotation. In charge of the painting, coach Pastorello usually starts with captain Claudio Negri (10.3 points and 7.5 rebounds) who, with the passing of his career, has progressively approached the basket, turning into 4-5 while maintaining danger in the arc.
The starting center is the ’98 Alessandro Riva from Lecco, great physicist, interesting figures (almost 12 points and 6 rebounds per race), who has returned to the north after two years between Piombino and Montegranaro. Edoardo Maresca comes out of the bench, a long man from ’98 (already seen in B in Montecatini and Bisceglie) more fond of solutions from the arch than of internal battles and 2000 Andrea Colussa, Verona nursery. Mamy is the worst attack of the championship (67.5 on average), but she managed to put two prestigious scalps in the game bag like those of the two Leghorns. After the blitz at PalaModigliani against Pielle, in fact, the great domestic victory with Libertas arrived at the end of a dramatic match, dominated for two quarters, then put back in the balance by the Fantozzi boys and resolved by a play at the edge of the siren. by De Ros. So be careful to get off to a good start for Riso Scotti, which has a duty to start the year well.
