On Sunday at 6 pm Gioiella Prisma Taranto, engaged in this tight race for the final goal, will be on stage in Modena, in an away match in the temple of volleyball, the PalaPanini, where the Ionian team will attempt the feat against the second in the standings on equal footing merit with Trento, the Valsa Group Modena.

In the first leg, in last November’s match, the Gialloblù got the better of PalaMazzola despite a brilliant first set won by Gioiella Prisma, an excellent comeback at the end of the second set and a third set played evenly. The battle continued even in the fourth set, but the supremacy of the opposite Lagumdzjia, 24 points mvp of the match, and Bruno’s enlightened direction had tipped the balance in favor of Giani’s team. Ngapeth’s performance was also excellent, deciding the fate of the third set with excellent plays and serves.

Modena currently has a sextet made up of the very expert Brazilian playmaker Bruno and the Turkish opposite Lagumdzija in the main diagonal, the French eclectic among the strongest spikers in the world Ngapeth and the emerging champion Rinaldi as spikers, the Serbian and German totems Stankovic-Krick in the middle with a brilliant Sanguinetti and the expert Rossini as libero. They just bought the Belgian spiker Rousseaux.
Also available to the team are the French spiker Marechal, Malavasi and setter Salsi.

Yesterday evening Modena was the author of a superlative performance in the Cev Cup quarter-finals against Ljubljana, winning 3-1 despite some difficulties in reception: for Tommaso Rinaldi, author of 20 points with 52% in attack (without errors or blocks suffered ), 3 blocks and 5 aces. Giovanni Sanguinetti (89% in attack) and Adis Lagumdzija (17 points) also shine, but it is against blocks that the Modenese have supremacy in the third and fourth sets, with an important contribution from Stankovic.

A team with a lot of potential and with great effectiveness in the ball substitution, a team that has grown game after game and that will give everything against the rossoblùs. The Emilians are back from two good victories with Cisterna and Siena, in two very tight matches in which they proved to be a tough and determined team, fighting for a safe second place to be able to play off in a favorable position.
