Crotone wants continuity with Messina


By John

After the important victory at home against Giugliano, which follows the previous one against Foggia, Crotone returns to the field tomorrow at the “Scida” to face Messina, fresh from the home defeat against Brindisi. Therefore, a team will arrive on the banks of the Ionian Sea that intends to make up for the defeat in the midweek round, demonstrating that it was just an accident. On the other hand, however, the Calabrians want to continue and improve their path. The only flaw at the moment remains the fact of conceding a goal at the start of the match, complicating life and making the match difficult, even if the group demonstrated that they have the strength to overturn the final result.
Against the Sicilians it will be an important test that could say a lot for the continuation of the season of the Pythagoreans. Which are five points from the top, currently occupied by Juve Stabia. Mister Zauli, who will certainly not have the injured D’Errico available, will have to evaluate the condition of Papini, Vinicius, D’Alterio and Gigliotti, with the latter expected to become available again. So in the starting eleven against Messina we will see Dini defending the rossoblù goal, in defence, in the now tested 3-5-2, Loiacono, Gigliotti and Bove, if the captain manages to take part in the match, otherwise in his place he will called Leo into question.

In the midfield Tribuzzi or Bruzzaniti on the right, Crialese or Giron on the left with D’Ursi or Felippe, Petriccione and Vitale completing the unit. Gomez and Tumminello will certainly act in attack, with Vuthaj ready to enter during the match.
The precedents between the Calabrians and the Sicilians are a total of 23 between the championship and the Italian Cup. The balance is 9 victories for Crotone, 5 for Messina and 9 draws. Last season, the Pythagoreans prevailed both in the championship and in the C Cup match.
