The SuperLega Credem Banca is preparing to sprint for the halfway point. The 9th first leg of the Regular Season, third from last in the first round, opens with the advance matches for tomorrow, Friday 8 December. On the pitch Cisterna – Civitanova (6.00 pm) and, followed by Taranto – Piacenza (8.30 pm) with Rai Sport live. The other matches will be played on Sunday 10 December, with the exception of Perugia – Padova, which took place on 22 November (3-0 for the Block Devils) to free Sir from commitments in view of the Club World Cup.

Returning from Perugia empty-handed in the advance of the 8th round, after almost bringing the match to a tie break, Cisterna Volley tries again within friendly walls against another big team in an attempt to improve the current ninth place arm in arm with Verona. Arriving in the Pontine area for the advance of the 9th day scheduled for tomorrow, Friday 8 December (6.00 pm), the Italian vice champions of Cucine Lube Civitanova, returning from a black Sunday which saw them succumb with the maximum gap between the friendly walls against Itas Trentino, champions of Italy, have the obligation to resume their march in search of a good placing in view of the quarterfinals of the Del Monte® Coppa Italia.

Television showcase with Rai Sport live at 8.30pm tomorrow, Friday 8 December, for the night match at PalaMazzola. The hosts of Gioiella Prisma Taranto, second to last at 5 in the standings and still looking for their first victory of the season, have scored points in the last three championship matches after as many photo-finish defeats on difficult pitches such as Cisterna and Civitanova and at home against Modena. The guests of Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza come from a doubly favorable round.
