Lube strong, but Verona is ready

2018/2019 Credem Banca Superleague Playoffs are upcoming. The last act of this amazing season is starting, with the top eight teams of the tournament ready to face each other in the best volleyball challenge in the world.

Azimut Leo Shoes Modena – Revivre Axopower Milano. Probably the most balanced Quarterfinal between these two different teams with different histories, also in this season. After a bad start, with alot of injuries and with some troubles in the roster Revivre Axopower Milano found the right rhythm in the second half of the season, arriving to this moment in a very good shape. On the other hand Azimut Leo Shoes Modena had a good start in season, as the powerhouse they are, but struggling in the second part, also for the injuriy to american setter Micah Christenson, now completely recovered and ready to rumble. Both the teams added a key player in the roster, Andrea Giani’s team added slovenian hammer Klemen Cebulj, and julio Velasco’s team landed frenchman Kevin Tillie.
Cucine Lube Civitanova – Calzedonia Verona. Ferdinando De Giorgi ‘s team grabbed the third place in regular season, behind World Champs Itas Trentino and defending italian champs Sir Safety Conad Perugia. Lube will face sisxth place finisher Calzedonia Verona, who will try to ride the class, the talent and the experience of Matey Kaziyski, a player who won alot of trophies and who knows how to step up in the crunch time. Anyway Lube is the favourite of this Quarterfinal.
Sir Safety Conad Perugia – Vero Volley Monza. It was a great target for Vero Volley Monza to reach the Challenge Cup Final, defeated by Belogorie Belgorod, and also reach the Credem Banca Superleague playoffs. Will be a tough challenge for Fabio Soli’s team to face defending champs Sir Safety Conad Perugia, the Number One seed in the Playoffs bracket. Lorenzo Bernardi’s team will need to keep up the focus on the series versus Monza, and not to think too much to the upcoming Champions League Semifinals approaching next wednesday versus Zenit Kazan. Strong favourite of this series, Perugia will need to stay into the series to avoid suprises, as happened at PalaBarton some rounds ago, when Monza defeated Perugia at tie break in regular season.
Itas Trentino Kioene Padova. The Derby of Adige will take place between the Numbert Two of the Seed, world champs Itas Trentino, and Number Seven, Kioene Padova. Last wednesday Angelo Lorenzetti’s team lifted CEV Cup in Istanbul versus Galatasaray, and remains the big favourite of this series. But Trento will need to be careful of the talent of Louati and Torres, and of the power of Polo and Volpato, guided by experienced setter Travica.
