Lopez calls for patience

Cagliari boss Diego Lopez calls for his side to be more patient in today’s key Serie A match with SPAL.

The Sardi play host to the Biancazzurri knowing victory will see them open up a sizeable gap over their relegation rivals.

“The match against SPAL has exactly the same worth as those against Benevento and Hellas,” Lopez told a Press conference.

“It is a relegation battle. It will be different to the match against Crotone, we need to impose ourselves on the game.

“We need to show patience and keep the ball more. It’s important to get players back like Pavoletti, Barella and Joao Pedro, especially for the group.

“We need to do all we can to ensure the crowd support us until the end.”

Cagliari are currently fifteenth in the table, three places and four points better off than today’s opponents.
