Cucine Lube Civitanova entered the CEV Volleyball Champions League – Men final for the second consecutive year, the third time in the club history.


After recording a maximum win in the 2019 CEV Champions League semifinals first leg against PGE Skra Bełchatów in Poland, Cucine Lube Civitanova needed to claim two sets in the rematch in front of own crowd to be sure of the passage to the Super Finals in Berlin (May 18) and they did it already in the first two sets. The game did not have much of importance after that but the Italian side took the third set as well (25-15, 25-20, 27-25) to stay unbeaten in the competition with a 10-0 record.

Interestingly, these two teams met in the Champions League for the fifth season in a row and this encounter was marked with Osmany Juantorena’s display that consisted of 12 points made through 92% excellent attack (12/13 excellent kills) for Lube! Mariusz Wlazły scored 11 points for Skra.

Lube will face Zenit Kazan in the Super Finals, in a repeat of the last season’s gold medal face-off!

2019 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League semifinal – 2nd leg:

Zenit Kazan - Sir Colussi Sicoma Perugia 3-1 (22-25, 25-23, 25-23, 26-24), 1st leg 3-2

Cucine Lube Civitanova - PGE Skra Bełchatów 3-0 (25-15, 25-20, 27-25), 1st leg 3-0

This is probably record win in Volleyball: Vietnam give away only 5 points to rivals in entire match!

I have seen taller Indian women (Maldives). I guess none of them showed up at the court. You know you are in trouble when you are spiking up instead of down. Reply

VNL F6 M: With 5 players in double digits, Brazil down Iran to clinch last semifinal berth

It was a fantastic game. Brazil won previous game 3-2 and most of spectators were predicting that this match is as easy as previous but Iranian players show that anything is possible if you work hard and believe that you can! Brazilian players were stronger and highly skilled but in volleyball, no one can say win is absolute. Reply
