The fourth round of the showdown for the Scudetto could already put an exclamation point on the Credem Banca SuperLega Play Off Final. Cucine Lube Civitanova and Itas Trentino take to the field tomorrow, Friday 12 May, at the Eurosuole Forum, broadcast live on Rai Sport. The hosts, struggling with Ivan Zaytsev’s muscle injury to his right shoulder after Sunday’s injury in Trento and with the hopes of seeing the Tsar on the pitch reduced to a flicker, want to react with a great choral performance. Chicco Blengini is called to find alternative formulas while respecting the necessary number of Italians on the pitch. Up 2-1 in the series, the guests, without Srecko Lisinac, who underwent surgery yesterday for a back problem that had kept him out of Race 1, but with a great Matey Kaziyski, harnessed the Lube in Race 3 at the BLM Group Arena and they want to repeat themselves in search of the fifth Scudetto to break the fast that followed the 2014/15 season. After two tricolors lost in the Final against the red and white (2011/12 and 2016/17), climbing onto the roof of Italy with the frame of the Marche sports hall would be equivalent to a great sporting revenge for Itas and a tribute for coach Angelo Lorenzetti, who gave an important identity to his group.

Alex Nikolov (Cucine Lube Civitanova): “We are sure of ourselves even in the absence of optimal conditions. The disadvantage in the series doesn’t scare us because we’ve already hit hard comebacks and we get excited in the difficulties. A sporting battle awaits us, we are convinced that we can get to Game 5. We will be ready, you cannot dominate a strong team like Itas, but it must be fought with patience and fortitude on every single ball”.
Wout D’Heer (Itas Trentino): “La Lube has already demonstrated that in the previous rounds of the Play Offs it is a team that never gives up and I’m sure that on Friday evening they will put everything on the pitch to be able to return once again to Trento. We will find ourselves playing in front of a full Eurosuole Forum; it will still be the last home game of their season and they will want to do their best, but we will go down to Civitanova to try to close the account on that occasion. I think Race 2 demonstrated how we can have our say in the Marche too”.
