Italy - Superlega 2019-2020

  • Belated comment on Lube vs Milano game as I've just watched the replay... How would Lube's coach opted for this opposite over Ghafour at the beginning of the season? He's really weak as a spiker. Before the reinforcement comes, I'm wondering if Lube has any OHs that can serve as a receiving opposite, and Leal will focus more on spiking.

    Rychlicki is the better opposite in my opinion and he's not really an opposite. He's an outside hitter so reception could be handled by him.


    I think the problem with Rychlicki is not being used to Bruno's sets. It could take a while but I think he'll get better and he's still young.

  • And so the guy in Milano's stands holding the speedometer gun is the highlight from their side. :gone:


    Oh and Nimir tried to carry Milano on his back like he've done before but the lead was just too large.

  • Couldn't watch the game, but are the stats correct? Did Uros play 2 sets without attacking a single ball? :what:

  • Trento still has yet to win against the other top 4 teams so I can't see them winning.


    Neither Russell(ankle injury) or Kovacevic are 100% fit which makes it really difficult. Cebulj is a good OH but they need two OH performing well to compensate for Vettori. Vettori is quite okay this season but he's not an opposite that could score 30 points so the pressure is on them and Giannelli, ofcourse.


    Well, the good thing is he's having a really great connection with Lisinac. He's scored consecutive times over 15 points so that takes some pressure from the OHs.
