Sir Safety Conad Perugia are impossible to beat even after nearly 3 months!


Kioene Padova returned home empty-handed from the trip to Perugia, who had difficulties to beat them in Round 18 of the 2019/20 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season. However, the team coached by Vital Heynen, vice-leaders of SuperLega, managed to record the 17th success in a row, counting all national and international competition (undefeated since November 10): 3-1 (25-23, 19-25, 25-20, 25-21)! Cuban-Polish Wilfredo León was the top scorer for Perugia (19 points), but Serbian Marko Podraščanin was the one that highlighted his team as he made a 100% attack (11/11). Japanese Yuki Ishikawa and Cuban Fernando Hernández tallied 16 points apiece for Ravenna.

Cucine Lube Civitanova remained leaders after wrecking Calzedonia Verona in straight sets, conceding only 8 points in the first set!

Third-placed Leo Shoes Modena struggled to prevail over Top Volley Cisterna, while Itas Trentino strengthened themselves at No.4. Both Modena and Trentino wrote down 4th successive triumph in the competition.

ITALIAN CUP M: Trentino drop 2-0 in sets, Lube become first finalists

Trentino really started fast in set 1 and 2 and looked really smooth but Lube's experience and identity showed through when it counted. Bruno found the hot spikers at the right time and Simone Gianellli didnt feed the ball enough to his middles and Russell who hit .680 and zero errors. Both Trentino's other pins received more sets and far lower scoring percentages. Doesn't look like Kovacevic will be back this year to form so the coaches need to be smarter.

Hoping the Perugia/Modena match is as good. Reply
