The words of Thiago Motta ahead of Bologna-Verona

After the external success against Lazio, Bologna will try to continue its race towards Europe against Hellas Verona, which after the draw with Juventus will try to bring home more points for salvation. On the eve of the match, Felsinai coach Thiago Motta, among other topics discussed in the press conference, tried to highlight the main key points to put the Scaligeri in trouble.

"Verona è in form. I have great respect for Baroni whom I consider a great coach and who currently has a really difficult team to face. They are in a good moment, fresh from the draw with Juventus and I have never seen a team really put them in trouble. They know how to close down but not only that: when they go forward they work as a group and I think they won’t wait for us in building from the bottom. We’ll have to be good at forcing them to go low, be alert on the restarts and play very well. We are ready to give a great performance, I think it will be" a good match" began the coach of the felsinei.

"Our tactical system depends on the characteristics of the opponents. Against Lazio, in the first half, they played a lot on our mistakes and we allowed them something. Then però thanks to teamwork we managed to stay in the game and in the second half we did better becauseè the match opened up more and we grew a lot deserving the victory. I am thinking about tomorrow’s game, what we need to do and what to avoid in order to give satisfaction to ourselves and our people" added the'former coach of Spezia.

"Calafiori canè play either central or fullback. The competition is not è only between them, because theyé can also play together. Lucumì è is a very technical player, who on the way out sees passes for his teammates. Calafiori carries the ball, he can also insert himself without the ball. Both are very well and deserve to play. As I have already said, we can only start with 11. They are both two professionals who are not happy to start from the bench, but they know they can make a difference even in the running game" concluded Thiago Motta about the conditions of the two players.
