Crucial shift in SuperLega Credem Banca. The 9th return day of the Regular Season represents the sharp bend before the long final straight, both for the fight for fourth place and for the safety race, with the RAI Sport cameras ready to tell the most significant comparisons, both in the lower part than in the upper one of the board. The tournament will then observe a break on the occasion of the Del Monte® Coppa Italia Final Four, scheduled for February 25 and 26.

The advance of Saturday 18 February, with the first goal at 18.00, can be decisive for staying in the top flight. Gioiella Prisma Taranto and Emma Villas Aubay Siena collide at the PalaMazzola, paired at 14 points at the bottom of the standings, but with the Tuscans penultimate thanks to one more victory and with the home match against Civitanova to recover. In the first leg match, the Apulian sextet desecrated PalaEstra in four sets, but the difference between the two teams is now leveled, while in the previous three Taranto is ahead with as many successes.

The world champions of Sir Safety Susa Perugia are undefeated and have already won the Regular Season well in advance, but they continue to extend the season’s streak of victories and have not given up even at the BLM Group Arena in Trento in the tie break against Itas.

Sunday, at 18.00, the challenge n. 25 between Vero Volley Monza and Pallavolo Padova to break the balance between the two teams in direct matches. 12 victories each in previous crossings. The last face-to-face, staged in November on the Kioene Arena field, saw the Brianzas triumph in three sets.

At 18.00 on Sunday Cucine Lube Civitanova – Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza will be staged at the Eurosuole Forum, with live broadcast by RAI Sport and solitary fourth place up for grabs. On the eve of the eighth direct clash, tradition is favorable for the sextet from the Marches (6-1), who won the first leg in the photo finish.

Also at 18.00, far from obvious is the comparison in Veneto between WithU Verona, sixth with 29 points, and Valsa Group Modena, second with 38 points. 42 between the two teams, with the Scala having the upper hand only 7 times.

By a combination of fate and the calendar, in the postponement scheduled for Sunday at 20.30 at the Allianz Cloud, the hosts of Allianz Milano and the vice World Champions of Itas Trentino are called to the general rehearsal of the Italian Cup Semifinal which it will be played in a single match on Saturday 25 February in Rome.
