SuperLega, this Sunday in Modena, the 83rd derby of the A22: the match in numbers

Today, at the ilT Quotidiano Arena, resumed the preparation of Itas Trentino men's team for the upcoming match on Sunday at 6 pm at the PalaPanini in Modena, where the Italian Champions will be in action. It is one of the most anticipated encounters of the SuperLega Credem Banca 2023/24 regular season. After a day of rest on Thursday, the yellow-blue Team underwent a double training session (weights and individual technique in the morning, group work in the evening) to approach the so-called “A22 derby” in the best possible way.
This will be just the second official encounter in the last twelve months. Nevertheless, Modena, with 82 matches, is the second most frequently faced opponent by Trentino Volley in over twenty years of the Club’s history; only Civitanova (96) has been faced more times. The historical rivalry has also decided titles; there have been 5 finals played between the two clubs: Scudetto Playoffs 2015, Supercoppa 2018 and 2015, Coppa Italia 2014 and 2015 (four wins for Modena and one for Trentino).
However, the overall balance favors the Club from via Trener at 48-34, also thanks to ten victories in the last fifteen matches. The very first encounter took place at the PalaPanini in Modena on October 29, 2000, and ended in a 3-0 win for the hosts marked by Vigor Bovolenta (13 points with 8 winning blocks). In its history, Trentino Volley has won nineteen out of the thirty-nine official matches played in Modena, including the last two.
