Consequently, the biancazzurri matches scheduled for this week have been postponed: the third round match of the Italian Cup “Maurizio Minetti” against Tropical Coriano will take place on Wednesday 20 October at 20.30 at the “Daniele Grandi” stadium in Coriano, while it is not The new date of the challenge of the fifth day of the Italian Championship of Excellence in the home of Del Duca Grama has still been set.
The Victor San Marino, therefore, will have almost ten days at his disposal to review and refine the schemes and also try new ones in view of the matches and awaiting the return of Santi, Rosti and Pancotti from the U21 of the Titano.
And, as a match directive propositond, the board of Crer-L-Figc has given the green light to the inclusion of the league advances starting from the fifth first leg: Victor San Marino will play on Saturday against Fya Riccione on 6 November in away match (kick-off at 20.30 at the “Italo Nicoletti” stadium in Riccione) and against Russi on 4 December at home (kick-off at 15.00 at the San Marino Stadium in Serravalle).
Meanwhile, the coach Gianni D’Amore returns to analyze the second success of captain Barone and his companions in Excellence that arrived last Sunday at the Acquaviva Stadium: “We are satisfied to have won the three points again. For about an hour we managed to play a decent match against Diegaro without doing exceptional things on the pitch. I also really liked the attitude of the team, who after a few minutes from the start of the second half found themselves outnumbered but did not risk too much or immediately shots on goal. The performance of the new Greek acquisition was very convincing. We knew the qualities of this player even before hiring him: very well to need a profile like his to dare a little breathing space to the many young people who play in his same role. Greco arrived with us and immediately played a very good game with great humility respecting my predictions about him. In attack, who in the first half and who in the second half, Sapori, Bardeggia, Zabre, Pancotti and Prandelli put their soul into it, but it is clear that we can always improve a lot on the development of offensive maneuvers and finalizations of what we create in match. If we think we want big, we also have to start conceding a few goals so I’m happy that Pazzini has reached a clean sheet for the first time in the league. We want to keep fighting for promotion to Serie D: that’s our goal and we will never hide from what we said at the beginning of the season. To think about the ranking of group C of the Emilia Romagna Excellence, however, we must first focus only on ourselves and create a long series of positive results; When we manage to do all this, we can then also think about our rival clubs such as Fya Riccione, Russi and so on ”.
Finally, Leonardo Albonetti, midfielder of Victor San Marino, talks about the last league match in which he scored the decisive goal: “It was important for us to return to winning in Excellence after two consecutive draws, one negative from a character point of view while the another positive in the same respect even if the bad weather has limited us a lot. Against Diegaro we managed to approach the match well and the victory came after showing on the pitch that we are a real team despite Pedrazzini’s expulsion at the beginning. That episode could have knocked anyone down, even a bull, but we managed to compact and hold out until the end to get the 3 points. We will always fight to stay as high as possible in the classification of group C of the Emilia Romagna Excellence because we are a good ambitious group ”.
