A Sunday that started well and ended better for WithU Verona, which returned from the away match in Monza with full loot in its pocket, matching the result of the first leg. The Veronese boys have gone up the current in recent weeks and against Vero Volley they have slipped in the third success in a row, which was worth the hook up to fifth place in the standings. Having found a smile even away from the friendly walls, but with a large group of fans following who sang chants from the first to the last minute of the match, Stoytchev’s team is awaited by another important away match.
The Veneto Derby is scheduled for Sunday afternoon with Volleyball Padova, looking for points in terms of salvation. This is the fourth to last round of this Regular Season of SuperLega Credem Banca, which Raphael and his teammates have already started preparing carefully. Once the fatigue of the last round had been relieved, the group resumed activities this morning with the usual unloading session in the weight room, before starting work on technique in the afternoon. From tomorrow, then, the Verona team will move to the ISEF gym to continue their preparation. On Thursday there will be another double session in the sports facility located in Borgo Venezia, where exercises for perfecting game patterns will alternate with a careful study of the opponent. The departure towards the city of Padua is scheduled for Saturday morning, with the first contact with the Kioene Arena which will already take place in the afternoon.
“We have shown that we are a solid and square team, managing to contain even the shock wave that hit us in the third set”. These are the words of Dario Simoni in the post-match analysis. “Another difficult test awaits us on the Padua field – continued the Gialloblù assistant coach – but we will have to try to extend our positive streak”.
