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

'If I were Trentino I would serve every ball at Yolanda Leal. He is a terrible passer'. Not only Leal, ALL the reception of lube is terrible. just close your eyes and serve that will be an ace or will be B or C pass. Balaso for me is the real problem, because both Leal and juantorena arent reception especialists, they have a strong attack but they lack in reception. Because of that, you NEED to have a good reception from your libero and balaso simply has one of the worses receptions on libero that i saw. a libero having so many C passes from easy serves or committing mistakes on reception destroy a team, imagine a team that already has a very bad reception like juantorena and leal Reply

If I were Trentino I would serve every ball at Yolanda Leal. He is a terrible passer and it will force Lube to pull him off the floor.
The strength of Trentino has been a balanced atteck all year so the 'just Kovacevic argument' fails.
I feel if this goes to the 5th match Trentino is favored being at home and Lube doesnt do well in final games. Anyway it will be fun yo watch.
Perugia needs to be very very careful with Modena. Reply

1st set of Trentino was amazing, they blew off Lube. Block isnt good. For Perugia-Modena, Perugia will advance. Reply
