In the big match of Round of the 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season, Lube beat Modena and recorded their seventh success in as many games: 3-0 (25-19, 25-20, 25-20). Even though they were deprived of the help from Osmany Juantorena due to the adductor muscle strain and facing the team that didn’t concede a single set from the start of the league, Lube redeemed to their fans for losing the recent Super Cup semifinals to the same rivals and isolated themselves in the charts with 7-0 and 21 points. The naturalized Brazilian Yoandy Leal top-scored for the winning side with 15 points, which was as much as Ivan Zaytsev tallied on the other sied id the net.

Perugia head coach Vital Heynen has chosen to give a rest to the starting opposite hitter, Serbian Aleksandar Atanasijević, while he won’t be able to count on the middle blocker Fabio Ricci for a long time due to injury. Poland National Team member Wilfredo León chipped in with 19 points, including 6 aces, for the winning side. American Torey DeFalco scored 11 points for Vibo.

The match between the home side of Gas Sales Piacenza and Vero Volley Monza was marked by the new record of SuperLega.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
