Scandicci Women v Novara Women

Other sports - Serie A1 - 22 Nov 19:30

This volleyball tip comes from the Italian Womens Serie A1 match between Scandicci and Novara. Both of these sides have won 6 out of 6 so far, each dropping a point and only losing 3 sets each along the way to currently sit 2nd and 3rd in the table.

Scandicci have been looking unstoppable so far but they are far too reliant on Isabelle Haak. Last season they were an average mid table side winning 11 out of 11 and it's the signings of Carlini and Haak that elevated them to the top end of the table.

Carlini is a good setter but there's no doubting it's the talent of Haak that has got them to this position. She will be one of the best players in the world in the future but at the moment she's still an 18 year old girl who has yet to face opposition of this quality. Last season she played in the French league where the quality is nowhere near as high as it is in Italy.

She's taken to the new challenge well so far and started off completely destroying teams, her stats for the first 3 or 4 games were insane but teams are starting to learn more about her and how to stop her. Pesaro did a great job of stopping her early in the game on Sunday and the team as whole didn't really have a plan B.

Everything goes through Haak at the moment and when things weren't going her own way she was beginning to get frustrated and made a total of 11 errors in this game. She still won a total of 30 points but in the 1st and 4th set she really struggled and as a result the team lost both of these sets.

This was against a newly promoted side who came into the game with a strong game plan, today they face much stronger opposition and Novara and i'm not sure they're ready for the test. Novara won the league last season and have won every game so far this season, including beating last seasons champions league runners up Conegliano in the super cup. The have one of the best squads in Europe outside of the Turkish teams. They'll know all about Haak and will definitely have a plan on how to stop her and unlike Pesaro they actually have the talent to pull it off.

Scandicci are going to need to come up with something extra to keep their winning run going here and based on what I've seen of them so far I'm not convinced they have it.
