After scoring a 1:3 away win in Monza, the group around head coach Radostin Stoytchev tops the standings of the national league together with Lube Banca Marche MACERATA and the triple winners of Europe’s most elitist competition need only one point – i.e. two sets – from the last couple of rounds to qualify for the Playoffs 12.
Stoytchev shall opt for his usual starting six with Canadian Steve Brinkman being most probably replaced by Matteo Burgsthaler. Some weeks ago TRENTINO easily disposed of Partizan in Beograd but does not take another victory for granted being fatigued for the busy schedule stemming from three competitions running at the same time (national league, national cup and Champions League).
“We have a great opportunity to secure our leadership in the group” says Stoytchev.
“We shall get a win to be much more relaxed for the last game in Spain with CAI TERUEL. We shall not underestimate our opponent after our easy win in Serbia; they are a young team with some talented players and if you allow them to play with their rhythm, it could turn into a risky game. We need to stay focused from the start until the end of the game”.
