Top 10 is smoothly catching up on the chart.
There were two postponed matches in the Italian Championship yesterday. In the postponed match of the first round, Petrarca beat Piacenza away (33:11). The hosts resisted only in the first half of the match, having ceased to resist after the break. Thanks to the victory, Petrarch reached the first line in the standings, while having a game in hand relative to the closest pursuers.
The postponed match of the second round between Viadana and Emilia took place in a tighter struggle, but even here the guests were stronger. Emilia’s victory 31:20.
