Maaseik v Trentino

Other sports - Champions League - 05 Dec 19:30

This volleyball tip comes from the Champions League group stage match between Maaseik of Belgium and Trentino of Italy.
 
Belgian teams are generally underrated in the Champions League, Belgian volleyball has gotten a lot stronger over the last couple of year but bookies don't seem to have acknowledged that. In the 14 matches involving Belgian teams in the Champions League last year the two sides beat the handicap on 13 occasions and both teams won as outsiders at least once.
 
Both sides were very tough to beat at home, Roeselare were only beaten by Russian teams Belgorod and champions Kazan and still took a point off Belgorod. They also beat runners up Perugia at home. Maaseik are very similar to Roeselare and just as good a team. They only won 1 of their group games last year but they were drawn into an extremely tough group. They still managed an impressive win at home to Istanbul and took a set off Moscow. Even Polish champions Kozle struggled for long periods in a game that wasn't as comfortable as the 3-0 scoreline suggests.
 
Their early season form wasn't great as a couple of new players took some time to settle but they soon got back to their best and come into this one on the back of a 7 game winning streak, the highlight being a superb 3-0 win away to champions Roeselare, showing their ability to rise to the big occasions.
 
Trentino are a mess this season after a great season last year. They've already lost 5 times this season out of their opening 10 games, they only lost 5 all season last year. Their usually reliant on their home form, winning every game apart from 1 last season but even that's been dodgy this year with 2 defeats already. They've won their last 3 games to rise a little in the table to 8th but even these haven't been too impressive, they needed 5 sets to beat relegation candidates Latina at home.
 
Away from home they've lost in straight sets in 3 of their 5 matches. It was their away form that let them down in Europe last year in the CEV cup, losing away to Fenerbahce in the semi finals and then losing to French side Tours in the final 3-1 away from home. They've always been a side who look far more comfortable at home, last season in the Italian league stage they won 13 out of 13 at home but lost 5 out of 13 on their travels and this was when they were at their best, they don't look anywhere near as good as that side this year.
