Cucine Lube Civitanova beat Azimut Modena at home in galvanizing Game 1 of the 2017/18 Italian men’s volleyball championship SuperLega UnipolSai playoff semifinals.

 

No.2 Lube were in front of No.3 Modena twice when it comes to the sets but still had to resolve the match in the tie-break, in which their rivals dropped a two-point lead (10-8). Enrico Cester turned into a hero for Lube as he finished the match with a quick attack and a kill block. The encounter ended partially 25-22, 21-25, 25-16, 21-25, 15-13.

The Bulgarian Tsvetan Sokolov topped Lube with 24 points (4 aces), followed by Osmany Juantorena, who notched 18. Giulio Sabbi scored 16 points (3 aces, 2 kill blocks) for Modena. Daniele Mazzone contributed with 5 kill blocks and 80% hitting (8/10).

Game 2 of the best-of-five semifinals between these two sides is scheduled for April 1.

No.1 Sir Safety Conad Perugia and No.4 Diatec Trentino will play their Game 1 tomorrow, on March 29.

CL M: Jastrzębski down Zenit for 2nd time, Russian side needs miracle to go to quarterfinals

Re: @Piker
Yeah, you are right, my bad. They are indeed out already, won matches matter. I don't see Roeselare losing to Vojvodina. Reply

If Roeselare will win a home game against Vojvodina, forget about Zenit in next stage of competition. Reply

'Russian side needs miracle to go to quarterfinals'

They need what!? They just have to win a match with Halkbank at home, that's all. It does not really look like a miracle... Warsaw will play against Perugia but since they struggle with injuries and now lose against Tours they are about to be out of the competition, same with Roeselare.
