LAST MEETING

THE LOWDOWN

CUCINE LUBE CIVITANOVA

  • Cucine Lube Civitanova absolutely stormed through Pool A of the FIVB Club World Championship’s as they won every single game, including their 3-0 domination of Fakel Novy Urengoy last time out.
  • The four-time Italian champions are only taking part in the competition for the second time ever, having lost in the final last year to Russia’s Rubin Kazan - who Lube happened to beat in the group stages this year.
  • 33-year-old Osmany Juantorena led the scoring for Lube with 14 points in their victory over Fakel, although six-foot-seven Brazilian Yoandy Leal Hidalgo leads their overall scoring with 42 points, followed by Tsvetan Sokolov on 41.

ASSECO RESOVIA

  • Asseco Resovia could only finish second in Pool B after losing their final match 3-0 to the pool’s eventual champions Trentino Volley.
  • The six-times Polish champions are playing in their very first World Championships this year, but have twice been runners-up in the European Champions League, in 1973 and 2015.
  • 25-year-old Frenchman Thibault Rossard leads Resovia in scoring with 41, having won the 2017 FIVB Volleyball World League with France.

THE PREDICTION

Cucine Lube Civitanova have faced Asseco Resovia on five separate occasions, and the Italian side have never lost. However, when Lube reached the final last season, they won all of their pool matches - like this year - so caution should be advised before they face Resovia. This free-scoring Lube side should be able to move past Rosovia.
