To do this, the Maritimes have no right to repeat their past mistakes. It’s up to them to show more aggression, to perform in their attacks and to close the gaps in defense, while imposing the rhythm that suited them so well at the start of the season. Admittedly, they will be deprived of Tanguy Le Fur (broken nose) and Nicolas Moutibe (sprained ankle), both injured during their last duels against the Haut-Savoyards, but they will always be able to rely on Maximiliano Soliani, their goalkeeper with 114 saves and 2 goals in 10 games, which remains one of the key assets. The pillar that the crowd acclaims at each of its stops.
Born in 1993 in Buenos Aires (Argentina), it was in the footsteps of his big brother Mathias that “Maxi” (1.98 m, 104 kg) started in handball, at the age of 6, where after going through all the positions he ended up opting for that of goalkeeper. At the age of 12, he performed with Club Manuel Dorrego, then competed with the Argentina national junior team at the world championships in Mar del Plata (2011) and Bosnia and Herzegovina (2013). At 17, he joined the Italian Serie A1 with Handball Club Fondi, where he played for three years before joining US Saintes in 2020.
