SuperLega, an experimental Itas Trentino closes the regular season with a defeat vs Padova

The regular season of SuperLega Credem Banca 2023/24 ended tonight for Itas Trentino men's team with a home setback, the first of its entire Italian season. With their heads already projected towards the upcoming Play Off Scudetto (on Wednesday at 8.30 pm at the ilT quotidiano Arena they will play match 1 of the quarterfinals against Modena), the Italian Champions took the field with an experimental set-up (resting all the players who have played the most matches so far), which inevitably offered the side to Pallavolo Padova.
The Venetians won 3-1, their eighth victory of the season, but beyond the result, the coach of the Yellow-blue, Fabio Soli, can nevertheless be satisfied with the spirit and will to fight shown for long stretches by those who were part of the starting six. The various Cavuto, Magalini (both scoring 14 times) and Nelli (the best of the locals with 17 points, 57% in attack, one block and three ace), led by Acquarone, sold their skins dearly, especially in the first half of the challenge, which was always uncertain and full of reversals. At a distance, Padua took advantage of a more well-oiled set-up and a more brilliant general condition, but the more than three thousand spectators in the stands this evening applauded the team for a long time, showing character and cohesion on this occasion too, and making their debut in the top division with two young players from their nursery, setter Bernardis and outside hitter Bristot (both with an unforgettable personal point).
