SuperLega, big home match against Monza on Sunday: all the numbers

The preparation of the Itas Trentino men's team continues at the Il Quotidiano Arena ahead of the match that will see the Italian champions host Mint Vero Volley Monza on Sunday at 6 pm in the big match of the sixth round of the regular season SuperLega Credem Banca 2023/24. The Yellow-blue will hold a double session today (weights and individual technique in the morning, group work in the evening) to get the best possible approach to the challenge that will face the only two teams that have always scored away from home.
It will be the sixth official meeting of the calendar year 2023, a period that also includes four quarter-final matches in the Play Off Scudetto and a regular season challenge similar to this weekend's. The clash has become a classic in Italian volleyball, with three Coppa Italia quarter-finals (2017, 2018 and 2022 editions), a Super Cup final (2021 edition, won by Trento 3-1) and two Play Off Scudetto quarter-finals (2017 and 2023). Specifically, there have been 19 regular season games, six in the Play Off Scudetto, three in the Italian Cup and one in the Italian Super Cup.
The balance is 25-3 in favour of the club from via Trener, also thanks to fifteen wins out of fifteen matches played in Trento. The first match was played in Brianza almost nine years ago: 26 December 2014, Vero Volley Monza-Energy T.I. Diatec Trentino 0-3 in the sign of Martin Nemec (MVP with 16 points, 80% in attack, with four aces). The Yellow-blue squad at the time already included opposite spiker Gabriele Nelli.
