Trentino makes it 20 against and beat the record of Modena 89/90. The other big guns win too, Cuneo (tie-break vs Vibo), Macerata, Treviso and Modena. Castellana Grotte surprised Monza.
Trento extends its record streak to 20 games. Only Ravenna 90-91 stands ahead now with 25 wins. “20 wins in a row? We’re not thinking about records, right now the important thing is to focus on our game and improve as much as we can before the Champions League Final Four”, said head coach of Trento after the game.
Macerata was not kind to Medei, a former assistant coach to Berruto in 2005. it was not all that easy, but Macerata was back on track against Latina and it proved to be a crucial victory given the tie-break of Vibo in Cuneo. Matteo Martino was back in the starting line up after a month out.
“We are happy with the result, but good volleyball is a different thing so I’m not satisfied with the performance of the team tonight. We have to sort out a few things, in some fundamental positions“, added Mauro Berruto.
Cuneo played equal game with Vibo. Cuneo took the first set but Vibo had the last word in two tight successive sets. The game went to the tie-break, which was decided by two Janis Peda aces. MVP: Vladimir Nikolov.
Francesco Fortunato commented the game – “We wanted the three points at all cost, it was important to use well our energy and take advantage of the rest we had been given. But things did not go as we wanted, shame because we started off well in the first set, we needed to maintain that rhythm, but instead we gave them the chance to get back in it and that’s what they did“.
