VILLA CORTESE looks for home win to make step forward to Playoffs 12
2013 Cev Volleyball Champions League - Women
Villa Cortese, Italy, November 13, 2012. AsystelCarnaghi VILLA CORTESE of Italy is set to play Agel PROSTEJOV of the Czech Republic for the third round of play in Pool B of the 2013 CEV Volleyball Champions League – Women. The clash scheduled for Wednesday comes for the Italians after a 3:1 home win against Atom Trefl SOPOT and an away defeat to Rabita BAKU and it is extremely important along the way to the Playoffs 12.
With Agel PROSTEJOV having suffered two defeats and Rabita looking like the pre-favorite of the group, VILLA CORTESE and SOPOT are likely to fight for the second spot available for the next stage of the competition.
This past weekend VILLA CORTESE suffered its first setback in the national league. “I hope that my players are able to clean up their minds, forget this defeat and get ready for our next match” says head coach Gianni Caprara. “We are a young but well-balanced team. We do not celebrate too much after claiming a win and we do not desperate if we lose”.
The club is still a little concerned about the condition of rising star Caterina Bosetti – MVP of the 2011 FIVB Junior World Championship in Peru – who suffered a shoulder injury during the last match of the national league but the first medical examination ruled out any serious problems.
VILLA CORTESE and PROSTEJOV are crossing their ways once more after they did so two years ago, always in the prelims of Europe’s most elitist competition, where their clashes ended with one win for each side.
