It will be Perugia-Monza for the scudetto!
Mint Vero Volley Monza, after defeating Trento away last night in game 5 of the semi-final with a great team performance, joins Sir Susa Vim Perugia in the final series that awards the tricolour. We start at PalaBarton with race 1 on Thursday evening at 8.30pm with presale open from this morning.
Therefore, an unprecedented final for the Italian Super League with Monza making its first ever participation. But the final is nothing new this season because the one staged in Bologna for the Italian Cup Final is repeated, demonstrating the quality and consistency demonstrated by the two teams during the year. Among other things, power of coincidences, both overcame the same teams in the semi-finals that were also defeated in the Italian Cup semi-finals.
Field factor therefore in favor of the Block Devils by virtue of the second place achieved in the regular season against the fifth place finish of the Brianza team. Block Devils continuing their preparation work for the final in Pian di Massiano (physical and technical work this afternoon), obviously adding tactical preparation towards a specific opponent compared to the previous days.
An opponent who, despite the predictions on the eve of the match, has shown that he fully deserves the final act of the Super League. The excellent “scalps” of Civitanova in the quarter-finals and Trento in the semi-finals, both beaten away in game 5, could be enough as a calling card, but Monza is much more. It’s the speed and unpredictability of Cachopa in playmaking, it’s the robustness of a continuous and effective sideout, it’s the interchangeability of the performers on the pitch with the three spiker module (Loeppky, Takahashi and Maar) which doesn’t give the opponents points of reference , is the great quality in the break phase with the defense in particular led by libero Gaggini who repeatedly picks up balls to be able to counterattack. Last but not least, it is the great enthusiasm that obviously and rightly pervades a group that is having a sensational season (third final reached after the one in the Italian Cup and the Challenge Cup) and that is looking for the classic icing on the cake.
