The ranking has decided: the playout between Stadium and Geetit Bologna will decree the third and final relegation of the White Group of the A3 CREDEM Banca Series. An A3 championship in great growth: despite the reduction in the number of teams, the survival quota has risen, going from the 28 points of San Donà last season to the 29 required for the Sardinians of Sarlux Sarroch to occupy the last survival slot. As proof of the increase in the level of the championship, it should be noted that the yellow-blues, of the teams caught between direct relegation and the playout zone, are the only ones not to have played in the promotion playoffs last season, with WiMORE even reaching the quarter-finals against Casarano (in the playout with Napoli in the blue group).
The ruling, which came on a razor’s edge after the relegation of Garlasco, defeated at home by the Pink Devils and the 3-0 victory over Salsomaggiore, opens a new window on the gialloblù, who manage to close the return in the same position in which it was opened , resisting the overtaking of a never tamed Moyashi.
A fickle Stadium, sometimes lost, which however seems to have found some certainty during the second round. Of course, the competitive stumbles were not long in coming on several occasions, but we must not forget the successes that the PalaSimoncelli favorites were able to bring to their audience. Successes such as the victory in 3 sets against the runners-up Belluno Volley, and the renewed series of domestic triumphs in direct clashes.
However, it remains a taboo. despite being debunked in Salsomaggiore on Boxing Day evening, the gialloblù have never managed to repeat: the away victory. Spiker Federico Rossatti intervenes on the topic: “These entanglements have rekindled our hopes. We are definitely going to Bologna to win a match that already promises to be a great derby. I hope to see many fans away too. We need all the support we can get off the pitch: we, for our part, will fight until the last ball is dropped.”
