Second phase of the championship for Pallacanestro Cantù. Tomorrow for coach Meo Sacchetti’s Brianza players will make their debut in the yellow group. The challenge at 18 in Pistoia against the formation coached by the former Nicola Brienza.
The Tuscans finished the Girone Rosso of the regular season with 36 points, losing only one game at home against Cento. A never trivial challenge, the one between Pistoia and Cantù, both in terms of the importance of the two squares and for the heated rivalry between the two fans.
“These games will tell us who we will face at the start of the playoffs. They are an aggressive team that presses a lot – explains coach Meo Sacchetti -. Not only that, they have an important field factor on their side. Pistoia is a good testing ground for the playoffs. We will start testing these games against top level teams.”
“We will have to know how to read the match well to find the right solutions – he adds – Not only the attack will be important, but also the defense. These matches are always like finals. They have a top-level roster with players who score baskets when they hit the streak. We expect not to suffer too much under the basket and that our big men have an important presence”.
