It is true that Calzedonia Verona are playing one of their best seasons in history, but not many fans in Italy could bet they will down the champions Diatec Trentino in a derby of penultimate round of regular phase in Serie A1 3-1 (28-26, 25-23, 12-25, 25-22)!



Venture of „Yellow and blue“ team is even larger knowing the fact they beat leaders on road but it is worth mentioning that Trentino were once again deprived of help from two players from line-up: Filippo Lanza and Greek Mitar Djurić.

Serbian from Verona, Uroš Kovačević, was named MVP of Alto Adige derby (18 points) while on the other side, Gabriele Nelli had 20 (64% of successful attacks). With this defeat, Trentino said goodbye to second place in teh standings and let it go to DHL Modena.

Cucine Lube Banca Marche Civitanova (Ivan Miljković 14) secured top spot for playoffs and spot in the CEV Champions League next season with an easy straigh-set win against Gi Group Monza, while runners-up DHL Modena (Earvin Ngapeth 23 pts.) achieved hard-fought victory (3-1) on road versus CMC Romagna and claimed second place.
