First game of the second round, Day 14 of the Credem Banca Championship of Serie A3, And last of 2023 that the Chemical range from Brugherio is confronted on the field by Geetit Bologna (Saturday, December 30th at 4 p.m. live on the Legavolley YouTube channel) with a double mission: achieve their fourth success in a rowto Cagliari-Sarroch-Garlasco, a crucial result to further work on the current midfield area Meschiari and companions occupy them (8th place, 14 points)And repeat the success of the first leg, the exciting season debut in Paolo VI for the Rosanero, who had given the audience this 3:2 win.
Easily said, less done. Yes, because someone is in front Bologna which has ambitions that mirror those of the Chemical area. As for the ranking Geetit is there, at -2 from the boys of Coach Delmati (9th place, 12 points), in a still very complicated white group with always six teams fighting from the twelfth to the weekly position, locked in 6 points, a precarious situation that can be turned around in each round, considering that on the 14th day not only Brugherio will compete against each other – Bologna, but also Garlasco-Sarroch and then Motta and Mirandola against Acqui Terme and Savigliano, all six were involved in this dispute.
And then there is the revenge factor for Bologna, who are taking revenge for the 3-2 win in the first leg and appealing to the new energy that comes from the change on the bench Coach Guarnieri who took over from coach Marzola a month ago, and to a situation in the infirmary that has stabilized, with the entire squad available again, and that the 3-1 win against Garlasco before the knockout game against league leaders Mantua.
