Cucine Lube Civitanova – Azimut Modena
 
PRECEDENTI: 80 (42 successi Civitanova, 38 successi Modena)
PRECEDENTI IN SUPERCOPPA: nessun precedente in Supercoppa
EX: Alberto Casadei a Modena nel 2010-2011, nel 2012-2013 e dal 2014 al 2016, Giulio Sabbi a Civitanova nel 2014-2015 e nel 2015-2016 (fino all’1/12/15).
 
Giampaolo Medei (Cucine Lube Civitanova):Supercup is one of our targets in season, we play in front of our fans, will be a great worldwide event. We’ll try to take home the first event of the season, the teams will not be at their best of condition, alot of payers arrived late from the national teams, some the chemistries are not perfect. We’ll give everything we have, let’s see what will happen, we will need to see at what point the other teams are, but we are confident in a win”.
Radostin Stoytchev (Azimut Modena): “We are not at our best, it’s a compòicated moment for us, we practiced for the first time on yesterday with Holt, Franciskovic is out for an injury, some other players are not at 100%. We’ll play versus the defending italian champs, Lube, they are the favourites of this event and of Superleague, together with Perugia. They are better than us right now, they had the chance to practice more than us, so their play is more fluid than ours. We will obviously start with Bruninho and Ngapeth together, they have a special chemistry, they seem to be born to play together. Let’s see what will happen, we can only try to contain and reduce the mistakes”.

 
Diatec Trentino – Sir Safety Conad Perugia
 
PRECEDENTI: 20 (14 successi Trento, 6 successi Perugia)
PRECEDENTI IN SUPERCOPPA: nessun precedente in Supercoppa
EX: Massimo Colaci a Trento dal 2010 al 2017, Dore Della Lunga a Trento dal 2005 al 2009 e dal 2010 al 2012.
 
Angelo Lorenzetti (Diatec Trentino): “Will be a great event, the teams will arrive to this point not in perfect shape. With our staff, in past days we tried to make a game plan, trying to think about the real keys of this game versus Perugia. Irealized that the real key would be the enthusiasm in play together and have fun on the court, together with the patience in waiting the right moment, and accepting our limits. That’s how I think it will be the game versus Perugia”.
Lorenzo Bernardi (Sir Safety Conad Perugia): This is our first official event of our season. This is only the start of the season, all four teams are not still at 100% of shape, our focus is only on saturday’s game versus Trento. We played Trento alot of times in season, now they are pretty renowned, only the most important players Giannelli and Lanza remained, I think we are approaching the game with the right mentality. The guys are working tough and hard, they are making a good job”.

GIRONE BIANCO
Emma Villas Siena – Aurispa Alessano, the team from Tuscany will debut on the home turf at PalaEstra in this season, after the tie break win in La Spezia versus Fonte Acquaviva Massa in second round, after the bye week in the first. Alessano came from a good win on the home turf versus Messaggerie Catania, and will try to win the second game versus Siena in their history, having lost 3 of 4 games played versus Emma Villas.
Conad Reggio Emilia – Kemas Lamipel Santa Croce. These two teams faced each other 12 times, 9 wins for Lupi and 3 for Reggio. Conad is in trouble with only 1 point in the standings, after the tie break loss in first game at home versus Aversa and the loss in Grottazzolina. On the other hand Lupi came from a win versus Grottazzolina and a tie break loss versus Potenza Picena, so this game will be a very interesting challenge bewtween these two teams.
Sunday at 16.00 Messaggerie Bacco Catania – Videx Grottazzolina will face each other in Sicily. Both the teams are at 3 points in Girone Bianco standings. With Messaggerie Bacco Catania there is spiker Sidari, in last season with Grottazzolina. This game will be a very important game for both teams, looking forward to improve the standings and to hit a positive trend in the season.
At 18.00 Acqua Fonteviva Massa – Sigma Aversa, another brand new game in Serie A2 history. Massa is playing some good volleyball, after the loss in first round versus Catania and the tie break loss at Home versus Emma Villas Siena. Versus Massa the undefeated Sigma Aversa, with two great comebacks versus Cona Reggio Emilia and Materdomini.it.
Materdominivolley.it Castellana Grotte – Ceramica Scarabeo GCF Roma will be played sunday at 19.30. 4 times these two teams faced each other in Serie A, with two wins apiece. Materdominivolley.it Castellana Grotte is in trouble in this start of season, two losses for the team from Puglia until now, and it’s time to change the trend. GCF Roma had a bye week and a tie break win over Aurispa Alessano, now with 2 points in the standings.
 
GIRONE BLU
Monini Spoleto – Gioiella Micromilk Gioia del Colle, two top teams in this moment in Girone Blu. Former Monini Spoleto Joventino will be back at PalaRota with the opponent’s jersey. Monini is still undefeated after the wins versus Ortona on the home turf and in Lauria versus Lagonegro. Same road for Gioia del Colle, winner two times, in Cantù versus Pool Libertas and on the home turf versus Bolzano.
Caloni Agnelli Bergamo – Maury’s Italiana Assicurazioni Tuscania, another very interesting game between two teams still undefeated. Bergamo won at the tie break at home versus Lagonegro and on the road versus Club Italia, on the other hand Tuscania won on road in Trentino versus Mosca Bruno Bolzano, and on the home turf versus Pag Taviano.
VBC Mondovì – Geosat Geovertical Lagonegro. Mondovì won previous game at home versus Centrale del Latte McDonald’s Brescia. On the other side Geosat Geovertical Lagonegro, with only one point in the standings after two losses, one in Bergamo at tie break, and one, a clear 0-3 suffered, versus powerhouse Monini Spoleto.
Pag Taviano – Sieco Service Ortona will face each other in Serie A in the history of these two teams. Pag Taviano missed the debut on the home turf due bad weather and some drop of rain on the floor from the roof of Palasport, and now is ready to face Sieco Service. Ortona is with 3 points in the standings, after the loss versus Spoleto, winning on the home turf versus Pool Libertas Cantù.
Mosca Bruno Bolzano – Centrale del Latte McDonald’s Brescia will face each other for the first time in Serie A. Mosca Bruno Bolzano is still without points in the standings, after two losses, at PalaResia versus Tuscania and in Gioia del Colle versus Gioiella Micromilk. Centrale del Latte McDonald’s Brescia won the first game on road versus Club Italia Crai, and the second game of the season, remaining at 3 points in the standings.
At 19.30 the last game of the day, Pool Libertas Cantù – Club Italia Crai Roma. The two teams faced each other 6 times in Serie A, with 4 wins for Cantù and 2 for Club Italia. Pool Libertas is looking for a better season than the last, where they grabbed the save only at last game of the season. On the other hand Club Italia will try to come back after the two losses in first two games of the season.
