Cosenza is already in Pisa mode. Caserta hopes for an encore away


By John

Maximum concentration in the Sila group before leaving for Pisa. Fabio Caserta’s team will carry out the finishing touches this morning in the city and then leave for Tuscany in an attempt to repeat the coup already achieved in Palermo a week ago. However, be careful of the intentions of Alberto Aquilani’s team, who have not yet won in front of their fans this season.
In fact, the Nerazzurri, after missing the match against Lecco (which recovers on Tuesday 24 October), were narrowly defeated by Parma (1-2) and then drew against Bari (1-1).
Cosenza will therefore have to pay maximum attention. Caserta, in these hours, will resolve the training doubts it carries with it. Yesterday he trained regularly with the Pietro Martino group. On the right-hand defense, however, it will be the turn of one of Baldovino Cimino and Andrea Rispoli. The latter celebrates its 35th anniversary today.
Previous and former Twelve precedents in Pisa for the Sila team. Negative balance for the rossoblù: five defeats, four draws and only two victories. The latest success was dated December 2019.
Piero Braglia’s Cosenza prevailed over Luca D’Angelo’s team 3-1 thanks to Rivière’s brace and Broh’s temporary 0-2. The Nerazzurri only closed the gap in the second half with Birindelli. Then, a few minutes later, Perina saved a penalty kick from Davide Moscardelli.
Same score but this time negative in the last cadet championship. At Viali’s first time on the Sila bench, the Pisans won the three points with a wild Morutan (double) and Masucci. D’Urso’s goal a few minutes from the end was useless. The year before, 1-1 was decisive for reaching the playouts: Liotti responded to Venturi’s own goal with a penalty (procured by Zilli). Cosenza’s first blitz dates back to 1993: on 2 May, it was Marulla who determined the success of the eleven-metre Wolves.
The only ex present on the Tuscan side will not be on the field. Ettore Gliozzi, in fact, is out after knee surgery at the beginning of September. LThe striker from Siderno has totaled 30 appearances and 7 goals with the Sila jersey.
In Cosenza there are two with a past at Pisa. The first is Andrea Meroni. The center back from Monza wore the Nerazzurri shirt on 69 occasions without ever managing to score. The other ex is the sporting director Roberto Gemmi, a great protagonist of the Tuscans’ latest promotion to Serie B and also of the two subsequent tournaments.
Designation For tomorrow afternoon’s match in Pisa, CAN has designated Daniele Rutella. The referee from the Enna section has only one precedent with Cosenza, relating to the past championship. In that case, the rossoblù were beaten 2-1 by Bari at the “San Nicola”.
The Sicilian referee has managed Pisa on three occasions: two draws (1-1 against Cagliari, in 2022, and 0-0 against Cuneo, in 2018) and one defeat (3-2 against Viterbese in 2019). Together with the match director, there will also be the assistants Ricci M. and Niedda and the fourth official Bozzetto at the “Arena Garibaldi”. Var Miele and Avar La Penna complete the referee team.
