After the 3-1 success in Pordenone in the first leg match, Consar Ravenna is closer to qualifying for the final four of the Del Monte Coppa Italia. In tomorrow’s return match at Pala De Andrè, the last at home this year (played at 7pm, free live on and refereeing entrusted to Turtù di Montegranaro and Cecconato di Villorba), Goi and his teammates just need to win two sets to achieve the goal. In the event of a three-point success for Tinet, the golden play-off set at 15 would be played. Marco Bonitta, Consar coach, does not change his strategies or thoughts. “We said that we want to play this Italian Cup to the best of our ability and that in any case we want to give space to those guys who have played less. There is no need for pre-tactics: we will play with the team that finished the match in Pordenone, because it is made up of athletes who have shown great commitment and dedication throughout the entire season and have earned this opportunity. It is also the last match of this year in front of our fans and we want to greet them in the best way. Then the progress of this match will also depend a lot on what Tinet puts on the field.”
No one in the Ravenna house expects a compliant or resigned opponent. Boninfante’s team will do everything they can to overturn the result and secure their ticket to the final in Cuneo, but the very attitude and management of the match exhibited by its players leaves Bonitta calm. “The best thing about Wednesday’s match was not It was the victory itself – he explains – but rather the team spirit, the unity, the union of intent. Everyone who started in the sextet and those who joined gave their contribution. But I had no doubts because during the year I often willingly mixed them up and made them feel like participants in a project. I was sure that we could play a good match, just as I am sure that the same thing will happen tomorrow.”
But it is not just the Del Monte Coppa Italia that marks this month of May, which is particularly a harbinger of good prospects for Consar. Broadening our gaze to the youth sector, there is a Boy League final to be played at the end of the month and a Junior League final to be won next Wednesday, in the home match against Castellana Grotte which will close the second qualifying concentration. “These are two very important objectives, which the company cares about a lot – recalls Bonitta -.
