Out of editorial staff
On the fourth day of the second leg of the Serie B2 Women’s Championship, Group F, the Galaxy Inzani will be on the friendly PalaLeoni floor on Saturday Pole. Riva Suzzarain a race that promises absolutely not to be underestimated.
In fact, there is great anticipation for the game between the Parma players, mainly due to desire redeem the opaque performance of the first leg. In Mantua, Candio and his teammates enjoyed a 3-1 comeback in early November that left them with 5 points after four days, passed by the girls coached by Francesco Sgarbi, who at that point were alone in fifth place at a height of 7 layers.
A round later, however, the situation is completely different today: Suzzara is now entangled in the full relegation zone, fourth from bottom, level with his regional colleagues from Rivalta sul Mincio, with 15 points Martinelli (author of an excellent performance in the first leg) and teammates who lost in the tiebreak last Sunday in Rubiera after leading 0:2.
On the other hand, the morale at Collecchiese is very different: the 26 points in the general classification have dug a furrow of 11 lengths for the opponents and the good performance in Mirandola, albeit with only one point, made the team pull up itself in fifth place, thanks to the dry defeat of Volley Davis (remains at 25 points) in Alseno.
A team that of Scaltriti, never tamed in every game and objectively aware of its strengths; The varied and tough game is a natural consequence of the Colornese coach’s competitive approach, who explains: “I can only be satisfied with the performance from last Saturday, scoring points in Mirandola has been taboo for all teams so far, and catching up from 0-2, even in the third set, is a result that shouldn’t be scoffed at at all. The point reached helped move the table, which is what interests us in the first place. Now – Scaltriti continues – let’s think about Saturday’s game, because Suzzara is a team that so far has been able to trouble all the opponents they have faced, as indeed happened to us in the first leg”.
Technical Director Aristo Isola, Dean of Italian Sport Managers, shares the mood experienced at PalaLeoni: “The game against Suzzara is very close to our hearts because in the first leg, thanks to the absences in the team, we got a result that was probably lower than what we expected the night before. The gap in the table between us and their team, although objectively there, means nothing, because in this championship all teams, except for the top of the table, can set traps for their opponents. I expect – concludes the manager from Parma – an attentive competition by our players who certainly want to do well in front of their home crowd.”
A home crowd that, apart from the opening debut against the unbeatable Gossolengo, has always seen their favorites, who are objectively having a good season, come out on top as winners. Arbitrators are Messrs. Gloria Salvati and Davide B. Fallica, both from Emilia Romagna; Appointment therefore on Saturday at 7 p.m. at the PalaLeoni in Collecchio.
