TMW Radio

The return playoff semi-finals are approaching, and Serie C will soon know the two finalists who will compete for promotion: Vicenza-Avellino and Benevento-Carrarese. In the morning of TMW Radioinside the transmission To All Che intervened former striker Stefan Schwochwho linked his name more closely to the Venetian team: “Vicenza is a very good team, built to have an excellent championship, and since Vecchi arrived there has been a definitive change of gear. The coach has brought mentality, he has already won the championship and important tournaments against Inter, who were a great school, and the team has changed from an attitude point of view, it has become more aggressive and compact. The club then cleaned up in the locker room, another fundamental issue. Winning is never easy, but Vicenza has good potential.”

We start again from 0-0 in the first leg. What will Vicenza have to pay attention to?
“To the aggressiveness of Avellino, who together with Benevento are the team that has spent the most to build their squad. The Irpinia team’s objective was written, but playing at ‘Menti’ will be different for them, even if with the quality which has, and there is a lot of it, can find the episode in its favour. Which is also in the cards for Vicenza, who have to play the match because they are at home but cannot leave spaces.”

Among the strong names at Lane is Ferrari.
“He is a point of reference for the red and whites, but he needs a team around him, he is not a player who manages to create opportunities alone. But he has an important physical structure, in the aerial game he is almost unstoppable, and in any case he also has a great mentality: I’ve never seen him protest against a teammate, he’s always available to everyone. He’s a footballer who fights, he never backs down, he’s a precious element, one of the leaders of the dressing room, of those who, like. they say, pull the cart to bring Vicenza to where it belongs.”

Let’s go now to the other semi-final. How do you rate Benevento-Carrarese?
“I had immediately put Carrarese as a possible surprise, they are a strong team that could be the revelation, because when you arrive with the wind at your back and you have no pressure it almost becomes a personal challenge, a recognition for themselves. The Apuans have a lot up front. quality, he always finds the goal, and he has put Benevento in a position to win by force. And when you have to win the second one by force, you are led to open up more, even in front of teams that know how to do badly Benevento has spent a lot, it has relied on a high-level structure, but having the label of favorites complicates everything: playing more freely with your head helps.”
