Second consecutive home game for Vibo following the tie-break victory over the Italian champions last week, which send them in 8th place, the last qualifying position for the Italian Cup. Città di Castello is 10th but just one point behind. In the last round, it was defeated by Cuneo.

Macerata has already secured its ticket into the Italian Cup and into the next phase of the Champions League. And now they will face Cuneo in the 73rd meeting between the two clubs, a classic in the league. Cuneo is far from playing at the level of Macerata this year. They have been knocked out of the Cev Cup this week, and will try to add to the recent victories to improve their seventh position to make sure they get into the cup.

Three victories with maximum points over Molfetta, Vibo and Ravenna rocketed Perugia to a very exciting position in the table, fourth. Latina have had ups and downs: unbeatable in Europe (win in Challenge cup 16th of finals this week) but struggling in the league. But given the tight table, they still have hopes to qualify for the cup quarters.
