Leo Shoes Modena carved out a big win in Round 8 of the 2019/20 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


In a duel of fierce rivals, which represents one of the biggest rivalries of Italian but also European volleyball, Leo Shoes Modena prevailed over Itas Trentino by a 3-1 (22-25, 25-23, 25-22, 25-21) in the match valid for Round 8 of the 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season. Last season, Modena lost both matches to Trentino prior to the play-offs and now, they are on a good way to take full revenge on the rivals for this.

Ivan Zaytsev with 18 points and Pole Bartosz Bednorz with 6 aces led the home side of Modena to a valuable victory in front of 5,000 spectators at the sold-out PalaPanini. Luca Vettori and American Aaron Russell top-scored for Trentino with 17 points apiece. The latter has served 5 aces.

With this win, Modena continued to breathe down the neck of the leaders in the charts Cucine Lube Civitanova. Modena are at 7-1, while Lube remained the only undefeated team with 9-0 after beating Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia on the road by a 3-1.

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
