It arrived today, the day after the sentence that officially ruled out Campobasso and Teramo from Serie C, the official announcement of next season’s groups. The two new entries, as widely announced, are Fermana and Torresboth included in Group B, with Pescara slipping into the southern grouping.
SURPRISE – Also confirmed the rumors that Alexandria wanted, a little surprisingly, in Group B instead of Piacenza, which therefore remains in the group of northern Italy. A decision that the two clubs had tried to contest, but which did not bring the hoped-for results. The Piedmontese club, newly relegated from Serie B, thus enters the number of candidates for direct promotion (despite a decidedly subdued market up to this point).
FAVORITE – With the exit of the groups, the time has also come to draw up the list of the main contenders for victory. In A, inevitably, they will be contending for the victory Padua, Pordenone and Vicenza, which are unlikely to find teams able to counter them in the long run. The fight in Group B is also exciting, with Reggiana and Cesena ahead of Virtus Entella and Alessandria in the hierarchies at the beginning of the year. In the south, on the other hand, it seems to be a four-way issue between Catanzaro, Crotone, Avellino and Pescara, fresh from the group change.
