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”.
