Lundberg’s sporadic outbursts and Cordinier’s equally isolated flashes do not allow Virtus to avoid a terrible impression in a match where Banchi’s team still demonstrates how indigestible it is to play away from the Two Towers.

Lundberg’s sporadic outbursts and Cordinier’s equally isolated flashes do not allow Virtus to avoid a terrible impression in a match where Banchi’s team still demonstrates how indigestible it is to play away from the Two Towers.

The reality is that until a few weeks ago the black V had played a season bordering on perfection and then, when the big European teams consolidated or adjusted themselves, the music changed with the defences, even the less rough ones like that of Barcelona, ​​who took measures against the Bolognese gaming system and found a way to jam it.

 

This explains the 4/25 in the three-point shot accompanied by an equally lackluster 20/40 in the two-point shot. Figures that demonstrate how nervously the people of Bologna have been turned off, giving the idea of ​​having an energy problem.

The guests started off strong with Cordinier (5-11), but already in the second quarter they gave the impression of having lost their way. Virtus gets to -20 (52-32) and then looks for a burst of pride with Lundberg, one of the few not to play with the hand held. This brings us to the final -27 which is not so serious due to the size of the deficit or because the goal difference was not defended or because we have to say goodbye, at least momentarily, to second place.

The problem is that without the warmth of its fans this team, which is young and not at its main points of reference, tends to fall apart when faced with the first difficulties. Partizan arrives at the Segafredo Arena tomorrow with Shengelia expected to return.
