Sir Safety Conad Perugia gained a 1-0 against Cucine Lube Civitanova in the 2017/18 Italian men’s volleyball championship SuperLega playoff finals.

 

The top-seed Perugia took advantage of the home-court factor in Game 1 of the best-of-five 2017/18 SuperLega playoff finals against No.2 Lube. And it was absolutely expected, knowing the fact Perugia lost only one game this season at their PalaEvangelisti gymnasium. Tonight, it was 3-1 (25-21, 22-25, 25-18, 25-23).

The Serbian Aleksandar Atanasijević “woke up” after struggling to find a good pace in the semifinals against Diatec Trentino and poured in 20 points for Perugia. Simone Anzani added 4 kill blocks. Osmany Juantorena scored 22 points for Lube.

Game 2, in which Lube will be the hosts, is scheduled in three days.

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
