“Pelagotti and Massolo, two holders on goal”
Silvio Baldini talks about the line-up which, however, has not been revealed. “I have 23 players, all of them have trained well and are in good condition. Those who have played less may have some difficulties with the pace, but mentally they are already because in these two months they have all been involved and they are all ready to start from the beginning. Until the result is safe, I will rely on the players who up to now have given more guarantees ”.
And he concludes: “Pelagotti or Massolo, until tomorrow I will not say the formation, but I will try to focus on the players who have given me more guarantees.
