Pirlo’s words in the press conference.
“It will be a good match to play. We face a team that is doing well and has the objective of going to direct Serie A but we have the objective of going to the playoffs. The stakes are important. Como is making a progress important, they changed the coach and the way of playing with many quality players but we shouldn’t be afraid because we are Sampdoria, we play at home and we have a great crowd on our side.”

How is the team after the intestinal virus we had last week?
“We have recovered from this intestinal virus and we have recovered Benedetti, who is also available. We lost Barreca but we had a week of work where we pushed and must raise the level. We are ready to fight against Como, sacrifice will be needed.”

Feelings about Barreca’s situation?
“We have no news yet, today we will know more.”
