Lube facing Knack in last round of Champions League Pools

The atmosphere of the CEV Champions League is preparing to revitalize the Eurosuole Forum. Tomorrow, Wednesday 25 January (8 pm with live Eurosport 2, Discovery+ and Radio Arancia) the Cucine Lube Civitanova will close its adventure in Pool C by hosting the Belgian sextet of Knack Roeselare in the 3rd second round. The red and white players need an flawless performance to hit their first home success of 2023, fill up on self-esteem after three empty rounds in SuperLega Credem Banca and guarantee themselves the full success in the cup grouping.

The final ranking of Lube will determine the pairing in the double challenge of the Quarterfinals. The team from the Marches is currently the fourth first classified in the ranking and in the direct matches they would find the fifth first classified, or the Turks of Halkbank Ankara, finishing in the lower part of the scoreboard, the same from Trento. The results of the last round could upset the cards on the table.

In the CEV Champions League the red and white won the five matches played so far, winning Pool C with one round to spare and, consequently, qualifying for the Quarter Finals as group leaders. The first two victories came with just as many comebacks, at home from 0-2 to 3-2 with Benfica and in France by overcoming a partial deficit to prevail in four sets against the hosts of Tours. The progress of the blitz in Belgium and, above all, of the subsequent lightning victories at home with Tours and in Lisbon with Benfica were different.
