The first act of the season of the challenge ‘the eternal’ between Igor Gorgonzola Novara (in the photo Stefania Veljkovic) and Imoco Volley Conegliano is one of the three advances of the 6^ day of Serie A1 Women. The blue Massimo Barbolini – who will not be on the bench because of a routine – and the team is Daniele Santarelli, who occupy the first two positions of the ranking, will face an exact week away from the Italian Super cup on 16 November, the Allianz Cloud (continues swimmingly the pre-sale, tickets on the circuit Vivaticket).
“It will be strange to suffer in front of the computer – tells coach Barbolini – because it is the first time in his career that I find myself in a situation like this. However, I have full confidence in my staff, starting from David, and all athletes: I am convinced that they will do what they are doing from the beginning of the year, i.e. a performance major with grit and humility. We can and should continue to grow, we’re doing it with the right attitude and dedication”. “Saturday I go back to Novara, where I spent two important years of my career, it will be nice to greet the fans that I have always followed with affection – the words of Paola Egonu, great ex of the challenge – but will go down to the field with the shirt of my new team and are now focused exclusively on the Imoco Volleyball and an intense season that we are tackling with great enthusiasm. Saturday we will give everything to win with the shirt of my team, as I have always done in my two years in Piedmont, with the shirt of Novara”.
The match of the PalaIgor will be broadcast live on PMG Sports, LVF TV, Republic.it and Sports.en. The cameras of Rai Sport HD will be at the PalaGeorge in Montichiari for the duel of high-ranking between Bank: banca valsabbina Millenium Brescia and èpiù Pomì Casalmaggiore. Brescia is in fourth place and coming from two consecutive wins: “We are realistic – he tells Francesca Parlangeli, free of brescia – we are in the midst of teams that have an organic strong to important objectives. We will be playing with nothing to lose: our growth is to demonstrate in these races to give 100%, play with a clear head and be able to increase our experience. It is a time of fat cows, therefore, we must take all the possible steps, facing head-on at all, race after race”. The casalasche find themselves in group Caterina Bosetti: “We have to be aggressive, trying to dictate the pace not allowing Brescia to impose their will – says Tiziana Vigil, former captain of the training of brescia is in A2, which in the greatest series -. We have to capitalize on every opportunity that may present itself because the Millenium is a team that defends a lot and, therefore, have patience and be ready to play a long game”.
The third and last payment in advance for Saugella Monza and Lardini Filottrano will be held in the PalaYamamay of Busto Arsizio. The brianza of the Maximum Dagioni go chasing the second victory of the season: “it is Not an easy time for us but I am confident of my team – says Federica Squarcini, the young central Saugella – need a victory to boost morale and the opportunity is already tomorrow against Filottrano, the opponent that we will face with determination and courage to achieve success. You will need to have more patience and a lot of determination to demonstrate all our qualities, to make the three points and to excite our fans”. Success is active in the marche region Filippo Schiavo: “on Saturday, a Bust we will have to interpret with clarity and attention to all the moments of the set and the match, a way of being in the field that will be the counterpart to the moments of improvisation that are presented in the last games, thus influencing the results. There are then accept the capabilities of others, but only after having given the one hundred percent”.
The third trip of the season for the Bosca San Bernardo, Cuneo, after the splendid victory of Scandicci and the heavy defeat of Montichiari, Sunday at 17.00 will take the field at the Mandela Forum to address the master of the house de Il Bisonte, Florence, a splendid third in the standings on 12 points. “The two consecutive defeats have not changed our approach to work during the week – exact Carlotta Exchange rates, the setter of the ‘cats’ – these days we have worked so hard and well as in the previous weeks. We must remain serene because we are still at the beginning of the championship. That of Florence is a travel difficult, why play at Mandela Forum is always complicated, but Brescia has shown us that you can win. The challenge with Dijkema? As a style of dribble we are very different, but find myself with the pleasure of a former companion with whom to Novara I had tied up in a season in which we alternavamo often in the cabin of direction”.
Returning late at night from a fruitful trip to Perugia, the Join-And-Work Busto Arsizio seeks to recover energies for the next match, Sunday at the PalaYamamay, against the goals the Golden Tulip Volalto 2.0 Caserta who, after a difficult start, has shown in the last two rounds of significant progress by finding a wonderful point against the towns of Conegliano and a clear win for a 3-0 win on Monza. Coach Lavarini resurface in all likelihood, the sextet saw in Perugia with Orro – Lowe, Bonifacio – Washington, Gennari – Herbots, Wang free.
Perhaps it would not be expected to face the match with a big League position, the better, yet the Real Mutual Fenera Chieri, which is offering a very good performance, is the host of the Savino Del Bene Scandicci with the goal of distanziarla further. On the other hand, the tuscan Marco Mencarelli, they are working to improve their individual performance and the team: “Mencarelli is a coach of the highest level that I do not find I certainly, is a very strong team and well balanced, but above all, that has great potential – tonalizza Julius Caesar Bregoli, coach Chieri – is finding a little out of his assets, as many teams have changed enough or have players return from the commitments with the national. For us, it will be definitely a tough match even if we play in the house and we come from a positive period. I know I repeat myself but, especially in matches like the ones with Scandicci, for us, the joke is a little on the theme of the whole season. Beat well is very important, otherwise it becomes really complicated”.
Finally, the Zanetti Bergamo will have the goals Bartoccini Fortinfissi Perugia, which closed the fifth day of the Regular Season on Thursday evening with the match that saw host Busto Arsizio, which has yielded three points in four sets. The race in the arrival, and the ranking of the opponents must not, however, to lower the defences of the girls of Marcello Abbondanza, who return to Bergamo after the tie-break comeback with Italy and the defeat in three sets to the home of the champions of Italy to Conegliano. And with the return to the Altarpiece of the Lambs, is back training with the group also Imma Sirressi, that in the postponement of Treviso had been forced from resentment muscle to leave the place to Lucy Imperial. For perugia some doubts at the centre after the resentment muscle accused by Giulia My Bertolo during the race on Thursday. “We started working on the next race from the very beginning, it will be important, as indeed are all – explains the other central Luisa Casillo – through the video, we are studying what measures may be taken against an adversary, however, well-equipped”.
