 ESPN.com Soccernet Column by Roberto Gotta: This is the Modena world
In the truest possible underdog fashion, Modena were a Serie C1 team only two years ago, and in the news for the wrong reasons, when one of their players nearly died after being punched by an opponent outside the dressing room following a game at Como.
Five of them are still regular or part-time starters, which in Italy is as rare as any coach actually admitting his team lost a game deservedly and not because of obscure machinations by men in shades and white coats (or fl jerseys and shorts and a whistle between their lips, as it is).
Modena do not score many goals (ten in nine games, three of them in the win at Atalanta), but their defence has been solid, anchored by business-like central defender Roberto Cevoli.
