The Play Off Scudetto Credem Banca 2023 final series opens on Monday May 1st at the BLM Group Arena in Trento. After eliminating Monza in four games in the quarter-finals and then Piacenza in five in the semi-finals, Itas Trentino is preparing to face the Cucine Lube in the best of five matches that assigns the Italian title. Game 1 gets underway at 6.15 pm: live RAI Sport HD, Radio Dolomiti and live streaming on the OTT Volleyball World TV platform.
HERE ITAS TRENTINO After six years of waiting, Trentino Volley returns to play the matches that award the Scudetto and will be able to do so by counting on the field factor in three of the (potential) five scheduled matches. The Gialloblù team arrives at the appointment further reinvigorated in spirit and body by the victory on Tuesday evening in game 5 of the semifinal over Piacenza, where they showed how decisive the contribution of the public can be.
“Those that start on Monday are certainly the most beautiful matches to experience for any member of the volleyball scene – underlined the coach Angelo Lorenzetti during the presentation – . We are proud to be able to play them again, but obviously we don’t want to be satisfied with this, also because we have worked all season to be able to have our say right now. A very difficult series awaits us, because Civitanova has also shown during these Play Offs that they are a team that is never in tame and that they always know how to find a solution to the problems proposed by the current opponent. A mental and technical strength that also derives from what she has been able to win in the recent past. However, we had almost a week to prepare for the debut, studying Lube well and working hard in the gym, and above all we arrive at the appointment with the precious experience of the series with Piacenza behind us, which has made us grow under all points of view. The team is highly motivated and ready to have its say, all the way, as it has always done in any event it has taken part in this season”.
On Monday evening, the Trentino coach will be able to count on all the players in the squad at his disposal and probably should start again from the seven starters seen on the pitch throughout the series against Piacenza. There are only three players on the Gialloblù roster who have already played in a Scudetto Final: Captain Kaziyski (7, all with Trento), Podrascanin (5) and Nelli (2, both with Trentino Volley). All the others are therefore rookies, including the blue world champions Lavia, Michieletto and Sbertoli.
