Antonini still believes in it: “We must not give up” – Sport

Matias Antonini Lui was one of the protagonists of Thursday’s blitz in Trezzo sull’Adda. The 24-year-old Carioca centre-back delivered another “important” performance, contributing to the success of season number 24: “Coming up against Tritium was not easy. We come from the victory against Rimini, and the risk was to be offloaded. to draw the strengths and energies necessary to win. Tiredness ? We tried it mainly mentally, not understanding the bets in advance and not first looking at the moves to be made. In the 2nd half, however, we managed to improve.”

It was a seemingly “unnecessary” victory, but, in the end, it kept us on the bandwagon of leaders Rimini, still at +5: “This victory – Antonini Lui cut short – we are holding on firmly, because that in this championship it is never easy to win. From the first in the standings to the last, every Sunday and every game is very difficult”.

For the 10th time since the start of the season, Ravenna ended a game without conceding a goal. Keeping the defense unbeaten is one of the satisfactions to share: “It’s a job for the whole team. When you leave the field without having scored, I think the goalkeeper and the defender are the happiest, but the credit goes to the team, that he defended himself unanimously”.

Ravenna will now return to the field on Sunday 24, at the ‘Benelli’ stadium to face the regional derby with Carpi. Ten days without competitive commitments will allow Mr. Dossena’s squad to evacuate some toxins, not necessarily physical ones: “We will need training – added Antonini Lui – because there is one month left before the end of the regular season. We have ‘sacrifices to train well every day, listening to the coach and the sports trainer, as we have done since the beginning of the year until now. We must not give up now. These 10 days will serve us to recharge our batteries, but also to work profitably”.

At the start of the season, the “central” of the defense Giallorossi had also found his way to the goal with continuity, scoring 5 goals, the last of which was decisive, during the 12th day, in the derby at home won 2-1 . with Forly. Since that day, the vein has dried up: “I actually stopped scoring. But, as I said when I did, even now I say the same thing. The important thing is to win, without conceding goals Precisely for this reason, I was happier on Thursday after Trezzo sull’Adda won against Tritium, compared to other occasions when I scored, but the team conceded. I hope to find my way back as soon as possible, however, when Ravenna wins I’m already happy and satisfied”.
