On Saturday at the BLM Group Arena the anticipation of the fourth turn of SuperLega

Is played during the imminent weekend the fourth turn of the regular season of 2019/2020 Credem Banca SuperLeague. The Trentino Volley will be the protagonist of the anticipation of Saturday: the 9th November at the BLM Group Arena the world champions will host the Calzedonia Verona in the traditional ‘’derby of the river Adige’’. Starting whistle expected at 6:00 PM: live on RAI Sport + and Radio Dolomiti.
ITAS TRENTINO the frantic rhythms imposed by the calendar of November do not grant breaks; just three days after the success for 3-1 against Tonno Callipo Vibo Valentia, the team return immediately to the field to face the second home match of the seasons and to try to maintain the invincibility in the championship.
‘’Succeed will not be easy, because we will face an ambitious team as Verona that is definitely among those that can try to steal one of the first four positions to the teams that are used to fill them – warned the coach Angelo Lorenzetti by presenting the match -. The Calzedonia has already taken a strong footprint from its new coach, the team plays with efficacy and personality so it will surely give us trouble. For our part, we need also this kind of situation in order to improve and continue in our growth path; the start was very positive, but prove ourselves is never easy. It is true that from now on we’ll play always every three days, but is an obliges path for a team like ours who struggled during the past season to win a place in the Champions League. So, there is no need to complain, but to concentrate on every single match’’.
In view of the match of Saturday, the Trentino Volley won’t have particulars problems of squad and the coach will be able to chose freely which couple of spikers insert in the starting six. The team on this occasion will come down on the pitch for the 820 official match and will go hunting for the 573 absolute victory, possibly the 300 of all time in front of its public who will be able to admire his team live already on Wednesday 13 November in the home match against Piacenza.

THE OPPONENTS This new season for the Calzedonia Verona, that has brought back on the bleachers of the SuperLeague the Bulgarian coach Radostin Stoytchev (who as coach of Trentino Volley between the 2007 and 2016 has directed 389 matches, winning fifteen titles), started with two home victories and one defeat against Perugia. Calzedonia Verona immediately move its rankings, confirming of being the loose cannon of the tournament and to be able to aspire to a prestigious position in the Italian championship. For reaching one of the first four positions and then therefore also the qualification to the semifinal of the Play Off (goal never achieved before by the club), the society has operated in a targeted way on the market, confirming the ‘’valuable pieces’’ already on the shortlist, but it also has had to deal with a new serious injury of the American spiker Jaeschke, who will have to stop for many months because of a problem on his shoulder. To cope with his unavailability arrived the compatriot Muagututia, immediately under the spotlight in the success for 3-2 of the last Sunday against Piacenza. On the high balls should be followed also the French opposite hitter Boyer and the Bulgarian Asparuhov, while the diagonal on the position number 3 currently used is the one of the last championship of the Trentino Volley Solè-Birarelli, who, in the past, have totaled respectively 189 and 345 presence when they were playing in Trentino Volley. The roaster offers a lot of alternatives in all the roles, also taking into account the presence of Cester, Franciskovic, Marretta and Kluth.
ALL PREVIOUS What will be played on Saturday will be the 38th official match between the two societies; the so-called derby of the river Adige has almost always said good to the colours of Trento, winner in twenty-seven previous.
