SuperLega Credem Banca Play Offs get even more alive with the first round of the Semifinals. After the most fought and unpredictable quarter-final series ever, Civitanova, Milan, Piacenza and Trento remained in the running for the Scudetto. The two matches of Game 1 in the best of five games will be played on Thursday 13 April at 20.30.
Live television on RAI Sport for the first match between Itas Trentino and Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza, remake of the Del Monte® Coppa Italia 2023 Final, a trophy won in Rome by the Emilians, also victorious in the other two seasonal matches in the Regular Season. This is challenge no. 21 between the two Clubs. So far it has been the Trentino players who have made the big voice with 16 victories against the 4 in the direct clashes obtained by Piacenza, eliminated by Angelo Lorenzetti’s men both in the 2020/21 Quarter-finals in two matches, and in the 2021/2021 Quarter-finals 22 in three games. Teams enter the match in good mental condition. After the disbandment in Race 2 with Monza, Itas gave a show of strength by imposing itself in an authoritarian way in the following matches and closing the series in four races, while Gas Sales comes from a Via Emilia derby that started in the worst possible way. down 2 to 0 in the series with Modena, and finished in triumph with three successes in a row. The last with a monstrous comeback in Race 5 at the PalaPanini. There is no shortage of certainties in Trento, enthusiasm in Piacenza in Massimo Botti’s group.
On Thursday, at 20.30, the lights of the Eurosuole Forum will also come back on for the first match of the Semifinal series between the Italian champions of Cucine Lube Civitanova and Allianz Milano, the black and white beast in the Quarter Finals of the last two seasons of Del Monte® Italian Cup and now fresh from the exploit with the Block Devils in the quarterfinals of the Play Offs. The Marches and Lombards have faced each other 20 times in Serie A. Tradition in favor of Lube thanks to 16 victories against the 4 exploits of their rivals. In 2022/23, in addition to the Ambrosian hunchback in the Cup, the two teams faced each other twice in the Regular Season with double success for the cooks, returning from an endless series won against Verona at the Eurosuole Forum in Game 5. With the help of a very warm audience, Chicco Blengini’s men overturned a verdict that seemed obvious after the first two matches won by the Scala. Great proof of maturity, strength and pride also for the Milanese sextet of Roberto Piazza, who hypnotized the favorites for the victory of the tricolor in the show at the PalaBarton in Perugia.
