Hosting Verona at the Arena

Sunday at the Arena for Vero Volley Monza, on the field the day after tomorrow February 5, at 4.00 pm (live on Rai Sport + HD and, against WithU Verona, for the eighteenth day of SuperLega Credem Banca 2022-23, seventh of the return round. After losing the external confrontation with Trento 3-0 last weekend, after four consecutive victories, the boys led by Massimo Eccheli want to smile again with the aim of not losing contact with the top positions of the standings, only eight lengths away (Trento and Modena are second with 32 points compared to 24 for Vero Volley). Winning would be especially important to overcome the Veronese, who won against Civitanova 3-2 in the last outing and for this reason above the Brianza in number of victories.

But one of Monza’s objectives is also to keep the pursuers at a distance: Milan and Cisterna, with Lazio’s next opponents away from home next Saturday. To reinforce the very clear intentions of the blues, also animated by the desire to avenge the defeat suffered in the first leg against the Verona team, who won at the Pala Olimpia with a 3-0 round in just over an hour, also the return of two players from ninety: the Brazilian setter Fernando Kreling and the German opposite Georg Grozer, both on the bench. For the director of the green and gold national team it will be the first time on the bench in the Italian top flight, given that the knee injury that kept him away from the fields for four months occurred at the end of September. Beretta and his teammates will try to push on the block-defense correlation (153 blocks, fourth place in a ranking which sees Trento in the lead with 166) and a continuous service (fifth place with 101 aces, Piacenza commands with 124), among the fundamentals that many joys are giving in this sporting year, to bring home success number 9 of the sporting year, the fifth in Brianza.
