Like in the last season in the final of Coppa Italia will play the Italian champion and the vice-champion. Who will be better this time?
In the first semifinal match Itas Diatec Trentino without bigger problems won over Tonno Callipo Vibo Valentia 3-0 (25-18, 25-13, 25-15). The match was tied only in the first set. Then, because of too many mistakes from Vibo Valentia’s side and an excellent performance of Matey Kaziyski from the other one, the current World Champions dominated and quickly finished the match. The best player was Kaziyski (Trento) with 15 points, including 4 aces, 3 blocks and 40% on the net. From Vibo Valentia the best performer was Tine Urnaut with 11 points and 55% in attack.
The second match brought a tied battle won eventually by Lube Banca Marche Macerata 3-1 (22-25, 25-23, 25-19, 25-19). Also in this game a key to the victory was to make less errors than the opponent. In this case it was Casa Modena, which made more of them. Great match for Sasa Starovic, who made 21 points (2 blocks) and 53% in attack. Good game also for Ivan Zaytsev (15 points: 1 ace, 1 block and great 65% on the net). From the other side the best scorers were Gundars Celitans (14: 1 ace and 43% in attack) and Sam Deroo (13: 1 ace, 2 blocks and 42% in attack).
