Cucine Lube Civitanova are the first finalists of the 2019/20 Italian Men’s Volleyball Cup whose Final Four is held in Bologna.

 

Itas Trentino have been worthy rivals to Cucine Lube Civitanova in what seemed as endless semifinal match of the 2019/20 Del Monte Coppa Italia SuperLega held in front of 9,000 spectators at the Unipol Arena in Bologna. The team coached by Angelo Lorenzetti had the lead in sets of 2-0, but the European and world champions showed what they are made of and turned the encounter around: 3-2 (15-25, 20-25, 25-16, 25-21, 15-12 ).

Luxembourgian Kamil Rychlicki was Lube’s top scorer with 22 points, but the role of Cuban Robertlandy Simón has to be stressed. He scored as many as 11 points in the fourth set, having an 80% (12/15) attack throughout the game. Serbian Srećko Lisinac tallied 20 points for Trentino, including 6 kill blocks and 4 aces.

Trentino really started fast in set 1 and 2 and looked really smooth but Lube's experience and identity showed through when it counted. Bruno found the hot spikers at the right time and Simone Gianellli didnt feed the ball enough to his middles and Russell who hit .680 and zero errors. Both Trentino's other pins received more sets and far lower scoring percentages. Doesn't look like Kovacevic will be back this year to form so the coaches need to be smarter.

Hoping the Perugia/Modena match is as good.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
