Men’s volleyball season in Italy immediately started with a bang!


After six months, Itas Trentino returned to their home ground for an official match. They were able to overcome Cucine Lube Civitanova’s initiative (1-0 and 2-1 in sets) in the first leg of the 2020 Italian Super Cup semifinal (3-2: 21-25, 25-19, 16-25, 25-21, 15-9) which was held in front of 826 spectators. However, Trentino made only a promising first step towards the 2020 Del Monte® Supercoppa final given that Lube will have the chance to turn things into their favor in the rematch at home, in one week.

The Dutch opposite hitter Nimir Abdel-Aziz notched 23 points (4 aces and 4 kill blocks) for the winning side but wasn’t hitting the ball according to the reputation he has (38% attack). Dick Kooy served 4 aces and was on a high level in defense (77 % reception; 35 % perfect). Cuban-Brazilian outside hitter Yoandy Leal scored 19 points for Lube. Cuban middle blocker  Robertlandy Simón made 4 kill blocks.

As for the other semifinal, Sir Safety Conad Perugia made quite a stock before the rematch against Leo Shoes Modena.

Cuban-Polish outside hitter Wilfredo León top-scored for the winning side with 16 points, while Argentinean middle blocker Sebastián Solé set up 5 kill blocks. German outside hitter Moritz Karlitzek stood out in Modena with 15 points.

CHN M: Chinese federation gives in to pressure, male foreigners will play Super League

Great news on the Men's Super League. The Women's you referred to in the news is actually not the same with the Super League though. It is a separate tournament roughly called National Championships where the provincial teams compete for the top honour. Women's Super League won't start until much later. If foreign players are allowed in Men's tournament, then it only.makes sense the same would apply to the women's. Let's keep our fingers and toes crossed! Reply
