The Derby of Lombardia

SuperLega Credem Banca finally opened. If a good day starts in the morning, in the Regular Season 2022/23 there will be uncertain comparisons and great matches. The 2nd round, scheduled for Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 October, offers two regional derbies (Monza – Milan, Piacenza – Modena and Verona – Trento).

Saturday 8 October, at 6.00 pm, the spotlights of the Monza Arena will turn on again for the Lombard derby with RAI Sport live between Vero Volley Monza and Allianz Milano, two big disappointments in the first round. The Brianza want to redeem themselves within the friendly walls after the clear defeat in Perugia, despite the good performance of Petar Visic’s setter to replace the unavailable Brazilian Fernando “Cachopa” Kreling, stopped due to a knee injury. It did not go better for the Milanese, defeated with the maximum gap at home by Cisterna despite the basic balance of the first and third sets, and eager to get up again in the demanding test against the two ex, Gianluca Galassi and Stephen Maar (chasing the ‘ace n.100 in SuperLega).

The second advance on Saturday, at 8.30 pm in the setting of the PalaOlimpia in Verona, is the 43rd derby of the Adige between WithU Verona and Itas Trentino, which they won on their seasonal debut. The Veneto team has conquered the PalaBanca of Piacenza showing a great push on the band and maintaining an enviable lucidity even in the most delicate moments. A great protagonist of the Scala past, Matey Kaziyski, returns to Verona as a rival, while Trento faces both the former yellow-blue flag Raphael Vieira De Oliveira and Lorenzo Cortesia, up until two years ago on the roster coached by Angelo Lorenzetti.

In the early Sunday at 16.00 the Top Volley Cisterna wants will face Gioiella Prisma Taranto, a team still at zero points in the standings, but which in the first official match of the tournament was able to frighten the Italian champions of Civitanova, then victorious at distance in all three set without ever taking off.

After the welcome back in the category, served by Trento at the BLM Group Arena, the rookie Emma Villas Aubay Siena tries again to grab a win on the home turf, facing powerhouse Sir Safety Susa Perugia at PalaEstra with the aim of repeating the test that yielded the 3 flash points at home with Monza.

The last official match of 2021/22 at the Eurosuole Forum had been staged in prime time for the third title in a row for Cucine Lube Civitanova, which on Sunday, at 20.30, will face Padova Volleyball. The agonistic wickedness of Padova and the 14 walls that blocked the way to the Modenese offensives laid the foundations for the 2 points snatched against a big one.

At 8.30 pm on Sunday, PalaPanini will separate the great ambitions of two teams who lost at their seasonal debut in SuperLega Credem Banca. The RAI Sport cameras are ready to cover the tenth Emilian derby between Valsa Group Modena and Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza. The hosts, ahead with 6 wins to 3 in the previous budget, come from the tie break defeat against Padua at the Kioene Arena, while the Piacentini, who fell at home to the last breath against Verona, during the week were rejected by the sports judge the appeal for an alleged irregularity on the occasion of the potential victory point denied by the referees after consulting the Video Check. Yoandy Leal returns to Modena as a rival for the first time, Adis Lagumdzija and Dragan Stankovic receive a visit from the club where they played for a season.

Serie A2 Credem Banca

The Serie A2 Credem Barca returns to ignite the Italian sports halls with the advance of Saturday 8 October between Prata di Pordenone and Porto Viro, a match followed the next day by another six matches scheduled simultaneously at 6pm. Debut for the freshman Tinet Prata di Pordenone.
The newly promoted Videx Yuasa Grottazzolina celebrates the return to A2 on their own court. After losing in the sprint the Del Monte® Coppa Italia of A3, but thanks to the victory in the Play Offs of A3 and in the Del Monte® Supercoppa of the category, the Marche team, with Breuning Nielsen 2 points from 1700, dreams of a good impact, but Sunday awaits the BCC Castellana Grotte.
Lombard Derby on the 1st round: Pool Libertas Cantù and Agnelli Tipiesse Bergamo take their first steps in the season with the sixteenth act of a challenge so far lacking in satisfactions for the Canturino team, victorious only 3 times, but willing to redeem the tenth place of last season. Bergamo arrives at PalaFrancescucci, winner of the past Regular Season and of the Del Monte® Supercoppa of Serie A2 for the second year in a row.
Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia arrives at PalaSport Villa d’Agri in Marsicovetere, Cave del Sole Lagonegro, relegated to A2 against all odds after a season marked by injuries and complex situations.
Eliminated in quarter-finals of 2021/22 PlayOffs with a very high head after two spectacular marathons with Cuneo, then finalist of the promotion play-offs, HRK Motta di Livenza,
If in 2020/21 the Consoli McDonald’s Brescia had become the protagonist of a fairy tale that ended only in the Play Off final series, in 2021/22 it was the turn of BAM Acqua S. Bernardo Cuneo to dream up to the last step, only to wake up abruptly in the showdown with Reggio Emilia, former protagonist of the final act of Del Monte® Coppa Italia Serie A2. The two teams want to start on the right step. In particular, the Tucans want to assert themselves against an ex, the central Codarin, and exorcise their black beast BAM, never beaten in the previous 5.
After a complicated season in SuperLega Credem Banca which ended with an early relegation, Consar RCM Ravenna restarts with great ambitions and a young project from Serie A2 and, fresh from the training test with Vibo, immediately finds an uncomfortable client like Kemas Lamipel Santa Croce.
