Coach Cavina towards Biella: “It's a match that rewards our daily work”

Forty-eight hours after Sunday's match between league leaders Angelico Biella and Orsi Derthona, valid for the eighth round of the second round, we took stock of the Lions' preparation with coach Demis Cavina.

Coach Cavina, on Sunday in Biella Derthona will play a particularly stimulating match, on the field of the first class of the West group of A2.
“After the summer revolution that affected this club on and off the pitch, not even the most incurable optimist would have ever thought that this team could play matches of this technical and emotional content so soon. We earned these results with daily work, following a path within which the Biella match aims to be a stage and not a point of arrival."

BiellaForum is undefeated: how can you worry the league leaders?
“Biella has a decidedly superior size and athleticism compared to most of the teams in this group and, recalling the first leg, manages to combine this excessive physical power with great danger on the perimeter, thus giving few points of reference to their opponents. To counteract these two aspects, it will be essential to approach the match thinking exclusively about our game plan, without distracting ourselves from the things we cannot control."

How did your training week go?
“We are continuing to alternate training between the "new" field in Voghera and that in Tortona, with the hope and hope of receiving good news regarding the definitive transfer at the beginning of next week. We worked without physical problems and with very high morale: it was precisely on this aspect that we leveraged to best prepare for this great match."
