Scheduled for Thursday 23 March, at 18.00, Top Volley Cisterna – Gioiella Prisma Taranto, match valid for the 2nd first leg of the Preliminary Round for access to the Play Offs 5th Place Credem Banca 2022/23 between the ninth and eleventh strength at the end of the regular season. Lazio have their lead in the previous matches with 10 wins to 9, and have won both of the two seasonal face-offs in the league, as well as the only previous one in the Group for 5th place. After the clear defeat against the Patavini in Cisterna, the Pontine giants want to redeem themselves in their own arena against the Apulian partnership, which closed the Regular Season by losing in three sets in Milan, but still hitting salvation. If the home team, in the second internal match, has to put the pieces back together and return to the field in top concentration after the internal misstep of the debut in the three-team pool, the guests must react to the sudden news of the imminent end of relations between the Apulian Club and the technician Vincenzo Di Pinto, who had great satisfaction in the Taranto square and who will lead the team until the end of the 5th place Play Offs before saying goodbye to his working group.
