Two matches of Italian Superlega CredemBanca Round 24 played in advance or, if you prefer, Round 11 of second leg were played on Sunday.
In first match of the day, a very good Top Volley Cisterna defeat at home newcomers Gioiella Prisma Taranto by 3-1 (22:25, 25:14, 25:23, 25:15) who, however, suffered the injury of their starting setter Marco Falaschi. He left the field on 7-8 of third set due an injury to his right ankle, and was replaced by Australian Dosanjh Arshdeep.
In any case, three very important pointa for the hosts, who can count on a very good Aidan Zingel, 10 points and 60% in attack, as well as 4 winning blocks, but above all on Dirlic, top scorer of the match with 20 points and a very good 53% in attack through 34 attemps.
On the other side of the net, Randazzo was the last to surrender (15 pointa and 51% in attack through 31 attempts).
Itas Trentino’s life in the vice-leader position in the standings of the 2021/22 SuperLega Credem Banca lasted for just 24 hours.
After the unexpected misstep in Italian Cup Quarterfinals, it seems that powerhouse Cucine Lube Civitanova reacted, despite still without Juantorena and Kovář, and they did it with by inflicting a clear defeats to Vero Volley Monza, in a match basically one-sided: 3-0 (25:19, 25:16, 25:17).
It is a game that the hosts won from the service line, thanks to 8 aces (5 by Zaytsev, very good also in counterattack), but also thanks to great numbers in attack, above all from Yant and Lucarelli, who ended the game both with over 70% in this element.
Monza, on the other hand, is still suffering the absence of Grozer, as well as the bad day of Dzavoronok, who stop himself with only 22% in attack, 44% positive reception, and 19% perfect. In short, today Vero Volley must be getting “DNR”, which stands for “Did Not Report”.
