This Sunday we play a team which is basically a Serie B team already. With only 15 points eared so far, Bari has basically no chance of maintaining Serie A status in the next season. Nevertheless, as matches like Lecce et al showed, we should not take this match lightly – but enter with a clear goal, which is to close the match as soon as possible and add 3 more important points to our account! Bari changed their coach 10 days ago and this had a effect as they managed to grab a draw against Genoa.
As far as our roster is concerned, the likes of Rocchi, Del Nero, Diakite will still be out with injuries and the latest to join the list is our right back Stephan Lichtsteiner, who is expected to be replaced by Lionel Scaloni on the right and Radu (who is expected to be back from injury) will occupty his usual spot as a left back.
There are some uncertainties in the middle: Gonzales, who impressed in recent matches and Matuzalem are expected to feature. Ledesma and Brocchi are questionable, though that will depend on the tactics Reja deploys.
In the attack, things appear to be as uncertain as in the middle, because Floccari is back from the injury but considering Kozak`s explosion, it will be difficult to leave the Chezch youngster on the bench.
Currently, the most probable formation looks like this:
Scaloni, Biava, Dias, Radu
Brocchi – Matuzalem
Gonzales – Hernanes – Zarate
