Good evening and welcome to LIVE LIVE of the first leg of the men’s volleyball Champions League semifinal between Sir Sicoma Monini and Itas Trentino. Just like a year ago Umbrians and Trentino find themselves up against a place in the Super Final of the Champions League and the Trentino people prevailed, then defeated in the final by Grbic’s Zaksa who this year is on the Perugia bench to try to overturn last season’s verdict.

In this season, Perugia and Trento have already faced each other six times. Trento had started the Supercoppa semifinal, a trophy then raised by Lorenzetti’s team, followed by, between the preliminary round of the Champions League, the regular season of the Superlega and the final of the Italian Cup, the balance is clear enough: four Umbrian successes and only one ( in the return of Superlega) for Trento. The season so far has said that Perugia has something more but woe to underestimate an Itas that is a mix of freshness and experience and for the occasion, Daniele Lavia recovered, returns to the typical formation with the Calabrian hitter in the opposite role.

On the one hand, there is a real caterpillar: Perugia has lost only three times this year (33 games played by the Umbrians so far this season) but two of these defeats have suffered against Trento. Nikola Grbic’s perfect car has had an enviable path, convincing both in terms of physical strength (which had been the Achilles heel of last year but Covid was involved), and on a technical and tactical level. It is true that with Simone Giannelli as director and two guns like Anderson and Leon (returned to his usual levels, that is stratospheric) everything becomes easier but it is an overall idea that the Umbrian team gives when they take the field and for this we must give credit to the Serbian coach.

On the other hand, there is Itas that was supposed to be this season’s outsider and in the end has once again found a way to play a leading role. He won the Super Cup, finished third in the Club World Cup, played in the Italian Cup final against all odds, is one step away from the play-off semifinal and tomorrow is going to play for the second consecutive year in the Super Champions League Final. Not bad for a revolutionized team and, on paper, resized last summer, which has focused a lot on Italian players and which continues to be a reference for those who love volleyball, beyond bell towers and cheering.
