ITA M: Trentino vs Latina preview

Due to the Grand Champions Cup being played in Japan, there is no Serie A1 this weekend except for the postponed game of the first round between Trento and Latina, which had not been played as Trento was in Brazil for the World Club Championships. Serniotti’s men have only been beaten once (by Macerata) and are currently third in the table and could move up to second above Piacenza with a victory. But they’ll have to do it without Birarelli and Lanza, both in Japan with the Italian national team. On the other side of the net, Sottile and co gathered only one win so far against Molfetta. New signing Starovic will have to watch from the stand as the club will be allowed to play only after three rounds. Latina will also be missing libero Rossini, who’s in Japan too.

PAST ENCOUNTERS: 24 (17-7 Trentino)

Matteo Burgsthaler (Diatec Trentino): “Extremely important game for us, a win could get us up there in the league table. The fact we could work in the gym all week will certainly help us, something that had basically never happened in this beginning of season. We’re expecting a positive performance on court now, but we know Latina will come willing to add to their recent wins so let’s not underestimate them. It’s a tricky game”.

Daniele Tailli (Andreoli Latina): “I have been working for a while for this game, given that we knew Rossini would not be playing. I did my best to be ready. I can’t wait to take on Trento, and I am curious to see what I can do in this Serie A1. We have proved that we are gaining confidence as a team. They are an excellent team and that will be very complicated, but I think we have what it takes to take points out of this”.
