The seventh round of SuperLega Credem Banca 2019/20, on Wednesday at the BLM Group Arena
SuperLega Credem Banca 2019/20 is taking the field for the seventh round of regular season that is going to be played entirely during the week. Itas Trentino is going to be one of the protagonists again in its court: the team will receive the visit of Kioene Padova on Wednesday, 20th November at the BLM Group Arena. The match will begin at 8.30pm: live coverage on Radio Dolomiti and live streaming on Lega Volley Channel at the link www.elevensports.it.
Here Itas Trentino They remained unbeaten up until now, and also in the away match against Milano, that turned out to be a 3-1 victory. Our players are now trying to go and win for the seventh time in a row, that would allow them to be nearer to the double insidious away game Modena-Latina after having collected some reassuring points.
“The first results of these days of work at a frenetic pace, during this first phase of the championship proved that each match can bring a new surprise - explained the coach Angelo Lorenzetti by presenting the match - . We must approach this match with these considerations in mind, as concentrated as possible and with the right aggressivity. we must remember how we played in Milan on Sunday and prove that the negative approach we had was just an isolated case. We are going to face a team that has already put us in a difficult spot in the past, a team that can manage every situation it is in. Kioene is a team that identifies itself well with its setter Travica, an experienced and combative players that holds the reins of the strategies and of the spikers with with personality.”
In sight of the match our coach can count on the whole roster, that will complete its preparation with a training session today early in the afternoon and one in the morning before the match.
With this match Trentino Volley will have taken the field for the 823rd time for an official match and it will try to win for the 576th time, it will eventually be its 345th victory in regular season (for a total number of 489 matches played).
Taking the field with the commemorative shirt brings back to the first challenge 19 years before… Padova is the first opponent Trentino Volley has faced within the walls of the BLM Group Arena (at the time was called PalaTrento). On 22nd October 2000, in the PalaTrento the team once called Itas Gruppo Diatec Trentino won over Padova at the tie-break during the debut match of the PalaTrento and of the team in front of its audience. To celebrate the anniversary, the Club is going to use the commemorative Erreà Sport shirt, that has been so appreciated by the public and which is quite similar to the shirt Giombini and his teammates were wearing on that occasion.
The opponents Two home losses in the last two rounds (1-3 against Perugia and 0-3 against Padova) aren’t much encouraging for Kioene Padova. Valerio Baldovin’s team is ranked seventh with six points, thanks to the wins against Vibo and Sora, teams that are also looking for a calm safety. To obtain it and maybe also get something more the Club has bought the Cuban left-handed bomber Hernandez and the talented player of area 4 Ishikawa, confirming the rest of the starting six that can count on the experience of Travica and Volpato and also on the will of emerging of Randazzo and Polo. In the roster there is also room for the Canadian spiker Barnes, that has not played much during this first phase due to some physical problems that also Randazzo accused, and the Spanish libero Danani, looking for some confirms after the great season of last year.
Previous matches The one on Wednesday is going to be the thirty-fourth official match between Trentino Volley and Pallavolo Padova, the fifth of this solar year. The previous records show that Trentino Volley is ahead with 28-5 and that it has lost just one time in a home match out of seventeen occasions (on 7th November 2004, 1-3).
