ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

I don’t think so. I believe it will be 3-2 or 3-1 Civitanova in the last game against Trentino. As I said before, Trentino doesn’t have a good attack, very good at defense and reception, but the attack is concentrated on Kovacevic too much. lube on the other hand, have 3 attackers that are very strong. Russell after the mundial of clubs didn’t to a great Italian league, and gianelli when the team lacks a good reception commit too many mistakes like two touches and low balls. Let’s see how will go, but as I said earlier, Trentino doesn’t have a strong attack to beat Civitanova Reply

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

Zaytzev was simply terrific, finally. :)
Lube again wins the serve /passing battle, which they live by in this matchup.
Trentino looks fragile and unsure. Russell is not swinging with confidence, Kovacevic passing is off and serve is not there. Gianelli's location missed numerous times
Why is Vetorri EVER pulled for a significant less player in Nelli? That the Trentino coach cannot do again. All this and yet Trentino still could have won match 1 and pushed last night to 5.
Trentino will correct their mistakes and gain momentum on Monday at home and push this series to a 5th match. Lube will tire. Reply
