The Christmas victory come from Itas Trentino. In the advance of the Round 1 of the second-leg, played for the first time in history of Italian volleyball on Christmas day, the team coached by Angelo Lorenzetti returned to success at the BLM Group Arena in the championship, a result that they had missing for a month and a half, thanks to the 3-1 imposed on Consar Ravenna. In the first part of the match, the guests put Trento into serious difficulty, who, after losing the first set, also wavered for a long time in the second set. The success 30:28 completely changed the cards on the table: in the second half of the game the hosts became more authoritative on the field, managing to conquer 3 fundamental points.
Lisinac, MVP of the match, scored 19 points for the winners (5 winning blocks, 75% attack, 12/16), which was exactly how many points Vernon-Evans scored on the other side of the net.
