Diatec Trentino at Eurosuole Forum in Civitanova
Trento, October 30th 2017
This morning Diatec Trentino has been at work in PalaTrento in order to prepare for the next match of regular session SuperLega UnipolSai 2017/2018. This first period of the season can't give the team any break. On Wednesday, November 3rd, indeed, the yellow-blues will be back on the field of Civitanova Marche playing the big match against Cucine Lube, reigning champion of Italy, for the fifth round of the championship. The program, aiming to prepare the team for the remake of the match that delivered the last Scudetto and the Coppa Italia, is really intense. It includes a double session of training today and one session on Tuesday morning, before leaving for Marche. This week Uros Kovacevic has come back to the group and he will gradually restart the exercises that the staff prepared for him in order to be ready to play once again in a couple of days.
On Wednesday night in the Eurosuole Forum (live on Radio Dolomiti and Lega Volley Channel from 6:00pm) the 57th official match between Trentino Volley and Lube will be played, the sixth of the year 2017. The yellow-blues are up 30 to 26 won matches, but Lube won the last five ones. The most recent victory of Trentino Volley was in fact in November 13th 2016 (3-2 in PalaTrento, regular session). The last won match on the white-reds field happened in February 10th 2013 (3-1), when the field still was in Fontescodella, Macerata.
