SPAL Palermo, Corini Conference, 17th Serie B
SPAL Palermo 10//12/2022: Palermo is preparing to face Spal on Sunday. Not an easy match and prepared away, given yesterday’s immediate departure for Ferrara.
A complicated match awaits us against a difficult opponent who has an important squad, certainly built with the ambition of making a championship that could bring us closer to the playoffs.
Thus, Corini, who despite the distance and the impossibility of answering journalists’ questions before the match, nevertheless decided to release a video with some statements on the team’s social channels.
We are aware of facing an opponent who comes from an important draw obtained in Perugia and who will want to win in front of his fans, but we are ready to face him.
From the words of the coach, the bitterness for the 0-0 draw against Como is still evident: Compared to the performance in the match against Como, I think that the only difference is what we have built to finalize.
The first half was incisive, only the goal was missing. Also reviewing the second half we had an excellent dominance.
Due to 3-4 maybe incorrect final choices or because the Como players were good defensively, we weren’t able to finish towards goal effectively.
As for the standings, it reflects the trend of the championship: very short and very narrow. 1-3 points change 3-4 positions. We are fully aware of the balance that reigns for all teams in this league and the specific weight that each match has.
On the tactical aspect, Corini specified that it is not an experiment.
We often developed it during matches playing with a double striker, sometimes we played with two attacking wingers, two strikers or an attacking midfielder when we also included Floriano.
We certainly have the possibility to vary the tactical theme by respecting the characteristics of our players, always respecting what is the general balance that is needed for each team.
I think we have players who can have unpredictability in their ropes, the ability to score one-on-one and go play through balls. We accompany the action better than how we developed it in the first 6-7 league games.
We have to be more effective.
