Bortolo Mutti is left to count the few remaining Palermo players ahead of today’s trip to Cesena. “We’ve got to give it all we’ve got.”
The Sicilians go into this match without the injured Federico Balzaretti, Giulio Migliaccio, Matias Aguirregaray, Edgar Barreto and suspended Josip Ilicic.
“At least Matias Silvestre and Abel Hernandez are back. It could be the right time for Franco Vazquez to start,” said the Coach.
“There will be many games in a short space of time and a compressed calendar that nobody was expecting.
“At this stage of the season you need to scrape together your remaining energy. We’ve got to give it all we’ve got, even though there will be fatigue. That is the objective.
“We always go into a game with the mentality of taking it to our opponents and want to prove we can also do well away from home.
“Cesena are unbeaten in four and have some excellent individuals who did not expect such a complicated campaign.”
