Volley Lube hope to keep up 100% record
Champions Cucine Lube Civitanova face Volley Calipo in the Italian SuperLega, hoping to continue their perfect start to the season.
Lube have won all eight matches and are on 23 points, leading Perugia by two points – who have played a game fewer.
De Giorgi confident
The league-leaders haven’t played since the October 25th, when they beat Milano 3-0. Coach Ferndinado De Giorgi is pleased to have everyone fit and is confident in his side’s chances of making it nine wins from nine.
He said: “We are finally complete. Jiri Kovar has returned full time and Enrico Diamantini has resumed training. We have had time to focus on the opponent and we will not be caught unprepared.”
