    The usual starters are not playing, the reserves are playing.

    "La banca" are those who sit on the bench during a match. They are called "substitutes". They are not the same as the reserves. However, there are usually only five players on the bench, so if the eleven on the field are not the usual starters, they must be a mixture of substitutes and reserves. Some players alternate between the first-team susbstitutes' bench and the reserve team, so there is some overlap between "reserve" and "substitute".
