The winning streak in 2019/20 SuperLega continues even in Calabria

Itas Trentino is back to success in the resumption of 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca. In the rescheduled match of the third round of the regular season, played last night, the World Champion team has shown to have been able to immediately turn the page compared to Final Four of 2019 Del Monte® Supercoppa, earning a victory at PalaCalafiore in Reggio Calabria - the new volleyball court of Tonno Callipo Vibo Valentia.
The team has won 3-1, remaining still unbeaten in the league and keeping a full score in the standings. The success in the longest away match of the entire regular season came at the end of a very good start, thanks to the contribution of a yet again great block phase (8 points in this fundamental only in the first set, won hands down), which became complicated in the second set, in which the locals attacked with exceptional percentages, but then set it right, making use of the substantial contribution of the service phase and of the entire attacking. With Kovacevic still on fire (20 points with 69% in attack and two blocks, rightly named MVP). The excellent performances of Lisinac (15 points with 71% and five blocks, all in the first set), Cebulj (15 points) and the contribution guaranteed by Vettori in important moments of the match, such as the end of fourth set, oriented the match towards the favourable result.
