Venezia vs Trento
Italian Lega A, playoffs semifinals, Game 2 in the series best of 5
Venezia vs Trento, current score is 1-0 for the visiting side who made upset here few days ago when won the opening game with 78:80.
Honestly, I expected back then to Venezia take a lead in the series, especially after another big title contender (Milano) lost its first game at home. But, Venezia failed too. Still, the same as yesterday Milano got back on track with outstanding performance and huge victory in Game 2 of the semifinal series against Brescia, I expect now to Venezia do the same.
Venezia and Milano are current two best rosters in Italy and it would be big surprise if some other team reach the finals.
Venezia was the No.1 team in the regular season. I like them cause they play equally good home or away. Completely the opposite from Trento who is below 50% when it comes to road games.
I said, Venezia is good as at home as on the road. But here on the home floor they really are tough to beat cause the team has excellent support, always and without any exception. They don't have too big hall but it is crowded always and those fans are very nice wind in the back of the home team.
The host is a team with very long tradition, this is real basketball city and they are defending the title from season ago. Back then Venezia was better in the finals exactly from Trento, 4-2 was in the series. Similar like now it started back then with Trento making break on the road but the same as then, I expect now huge reaction from Venezia in Game 2.
