HERE ITAS TRENTINO After having spent only one day in Trento, gialloblù team is leaving again, for the first trip in November looking for some points, important for the ranking. On away field, Angelo Lorenzetti’s team has shacked the ranking 3 times out of 4 matches, and this is the goal for the next matches too, as clearly said the coach.
“The qualification round for the Main Phase of Champions League played until last Thursday in Switzerland has been hard in all aspects, first of all the physical one. But it gave us good sensations and an excellent play’s feedback. – declared - . We need to play in a such a good way in Championship too and we want to recover and keep winning 3-0, as we did in Amriswil. Our opponent team Cisterna needs some points too, so we need to concentrate and play all the fundamentals good since the very beginning”.
The coach can’t count on the hitter spiker Michieletto, but there will be all the other 12 players, who completed the preparation for the match, the last training, on Friday night. Today, the team will spend the whole day travelling to Lazio. In this occasion, Trentino Volley will try to get the 597th victory in its story (of 858 match played), number 286 on away field. In regular season, gialloblù team won 160 out of 254 matches on away field, for Giannelli this will be the 100th time playing as captain. He’s the younger captain, only two played more than him and are Kaziyski (204) and Lanza (150).
THE OPPONENTS For Top Volley Cisterna, the beginning of the season was characterized by defeats (6 out of 7) and by physical problems of which is suffering Sabbi, and which forced first Tubertini (on bleachers until the ko during the 4th day against Ravenna) and then his successor Kovac to choose Szwarc as substitute despite the fact that the Canadian player (now Polish citizen) is a hitter-spiker. The arrival of the Serbian coach brought some new air, indeed the team scored the only 4 points they have until now, thanks to 3-1 on home field against Monza and at the tie break in Verona last weekend. Among the players, many are very talented: the hitter spikers Tillie (5th best receptor in Championship) and Randazzo, the two seetters Seganov and Sottile (the Serbian player often first-string, sometimes replaced by the Sicilian one) and the German middle-blocker Krick (very good at block). The coach can also count on Oreste Cavuto, who grew up playing in gialloblù juniores team and now often on the field thanks to his ability at attack, as he showed in Verona.
