Coach Massimo Ficcadenti is fired up for today's trip to Florence after Cesena beat leaders Lazio. “We've broken through now.”
The Sea Horses had been in dire straits with a run of one point from seven rounds, but face Fiorentina with renewed vigour.
“We are in good shape physically and the victory over Lazio was a turning point. We've broken through now,” he said of Wednesday night's 1-0 result.
“We will not change our tactical approach, not even against a strong Fiorentina side with quality players that has been built to target important objectives. Their current position in the standings is undeserved.
“We can have our say too. We were convinced of that before the Lazio game, despite the negative results, so we have even greater belief now.”
The match opens up Serie A Week 12 at the Stadio Artemio Franchi at 17.00 UK time today.
