The Italian Men’s Volleyball League imposed penalties to four players involved in an incident at the end of Game 3 of the playoff quarterfinals, two days ago.

 

At the end of Game 3 of the 2018/19 SuperLega Credem Banca playoff quarterfinals between Sir Safety Conad Perugia and Vero Volley Monza, the incident occurred while players shook hands at the net.

Santiago Orduna, the Argentine setter from Monza, spit Serbian Aleksandar Atanasijević from Perugia. The opposite hitter than tried to physically attack Orduna but was held back by his teammates. For this, Orduna earned an eight-game suspension from SuperLega, which he will do next season, while Atanasijević was suspended for two matches, which means that he will miss Game 1 and Game 2 of the semifinals against Azimut Leo Shoes Modena.

Also, Perugia middle blocker Fabio Ricci got a one-game suspension while another Monza player, the Czech Donovan Džavoronok, earned a two-game ban. Both were punished for involvement in the same incident (video).

NO!!! This is awful news for Perugia!
I wonder what Atanasijevic did to make Orduna spit on him. Modena is in a really good place to take 2 matches.
Bata and Rici are monumental losses. wow

whatever might have happened, Orduna shouldn't have done that. Unless he did intend to provoke Atanasijevic in order to make Perugia weaker. Very unprofessional from both sides

Perugia paid a fine for Ricci, so he's going to be on court, and Atanasijević's suspension has been reduced to one match.

the situation is very similar to zidane in football in the final of the world cup 2006. for me orduna was the worst attitude, you shouldnt provoke the way he did. but Bata has been doing this for years and nothing happened to him. he is one of the players that celebrate in front of the other teams, even sometimes doing very rude manners and nothing happened to him, it was going to come a red card or some suspension. the serbian players has this problems: lisinac is extremely agressive and often gets yellow or red card, both podrastamin and bata keeps making rude gestures to the players on the other side...

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
