Sir Safety Conad Perugia is the second finalist of the 2017/18 Italian men’s volleyball championship SuperLega UnipolSai.

 

The top-seed Sir Safety Conad Perugia smashed No.4 Diatec Trentino in straight sets in Game 5 of the 2017/18 SuperLega playoff semifinals, partially 25-12, 25-20, 30-28, to clinch the series with a 3-2.

The complete change of power relations was seen tonight compared to the previous game, four days ago. Trentino had the only chance of extending the match in the third set but even then, they first had to reach Perugia’s 23-19 lead. Still, when they managed to tie at 23-23, their rivals quickly went up.

Ivan Zaytsev topped the winning side with 15 points (4 aces).

Thus, Perugia will play their third-ever SuperLega finals (2014, 2016, 2018). Their rival will be No.2 Cucine Lube Civitanova.

Ivan Zaytsev scored 15 points not Aaron Russell.

I hope Russell stays in Perugia. He is getting stronger and better every year.

They need to retain their coach too. imo

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
