556 0

A victory against Modena has singled out Perugia as the only undefeated team so far this season in Serie A1.


Perugia needed four sets to defeat Modena 3-1 (25-22, 25-22, 23-25, 25-16).

In the first two sets, the home team controlled the situation on the court, taking a 2-0 lead. Modena only managed to force the fourth set, where they had to surrender and to congratulate Perugia.

Wilfredo Leon was the top scorer with 25 points (5 aces) while Aleksandar Atanasijevic contributed with 21 points, including 4 aces.

Tine Urnuat had 17 in Modena and Ivan Zaytsev added 15 points. Max Holt scored 13 and all of these performances were not enough to beat Perugia.

Tsvetan Sokolov (17 points) and Osmany Juantorena (15 points) have created a new win of Lube in the domestic league. They defeated Sora in straight sets. Dusan Petkovic was the top scorer with 19 points, but he didn’t have a help from his teammates.

Trentino had a really difficult game against BCC Castellana. The home team gave a huge resistance, forcing the tie-break. However, Trentino as a much-experienced side won the game 3-2 and left the rival winless so far in the league.

Another team that didn’t manage to score a victory in these seven games is Siena. They suffered the 7th defeat in Padova… Luigi Randazzo was the best scorer in Padova with 22, while Fernando Hernandez had  20 on the other side.

The French national team opposite Stephen Boyer has scored 22 points in a 3-0 win of Verona over Ravenna. It was an important win of Nikola Grbic's side.

BCC Castellana – Trentino 2-3 (25-23, 19-25, 22-25, 25-19, 10-15)

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

I agree with almost all you said. But the thing with grebennikov is much more difficult. Grebennikov is French and Lube desperately needed one italian libero to make space for Leal. They chose good, but this guy played before for Padova (if I am not wrong) without any pressure to win. Reply

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

Unfortunately, this was expected. I was surprised this hasn't happened after last season and 5 lost finals. It's always a coach that pays the price since it is easier to fire a coach vs the whole team.

It was the same in Perugia at the beginning of last season, when Atanasijevic was injured and didn't play so Perugia lost few games in the row. Sirci immediately fired Kovac, who made that team and save them previous season and brought Bernardi. Coincidentally Atanasijevic recovered at the same time and Perugia started winning. And glory goes to Bernardi :)

I love Lube but they simply have too many good players on the team and they need a coach who is a good psychologist. After losing 6 finals, they have a serious problem.

After their game vs Zenit, when they saved 8 match points, I expected them to walk over Trentino in finals. But they were nowhere to be found.
Lubre fired Christensen to bring Bruno, which was the mistake in my opinion. Christensen was the soul of that team after playing so many years for Lube.

They did an unfair thing to Sada by bringing Simon who was under contract with Sada. They brought Leal as well. He is a great player but he doesn't fit into already established attack formation with Sokolov as 1st attack option and Juantorena as 2nd.

Juantorena is 33 so he should have been replaced with Leal who is 29 if that is a long-term strategy.

But what hurt Lube the most is the fact they lost Grebennikov, who is the best libero in the world. Not sure what happened here, but Lube couldn't find a proper replacement and that is where their defense has a problem.

POL M: The Italian international to join Budowlani Lodz?

Rather, she can play Chemik, because Abbondazza is an Italian trainer. Reply
