Title game Sunday in Trento

Just like in 2008 and 2009, Trento and Piacenza meet in the final for the league title. It’s all down to game 5 after two home wins each as Trento is chasing its third national championship in history. It will have to do so without the injured Raphael.

“Losing him is definitely bad news for the team – admitted coach Stoytchev – His injury came at the most important moment of the season and with very little time to prepare without a player that not only is a top level athlete but one who has always been crucial to the squad. Having said that, we still have what it takes to win this league title”.
