2 min read

Cucine Lube Civitanova prevailed over Itas Trentino in the Italian derby of the 2020 CEV Volleyball Champions League. As a result, Lube remained undefeated in the competition after beating SuperLega rivals Trentino in a duel of the last 2 club world champions: 3-0 (25:21, 25:18, 25:15). It was a postponed Round 1 match of Pool A, which couldn’t be held as scheduled (December 3-5) due to Lube’s participation in the 2019 FIVB Club World Championship.
Trentino was decimated by injuries as both starting outside hitters (Kovačević and Russell), as well as starting opposite hitter (Vettori) were sidelined. Actually, Vettori entered the court in 2 of the sets as a backup. Osmany Juantorena was the top scorer for the winners with 19 points, while Greek Mitar Tzourits scored 11 points on the other side of the net.
