The first episode of the all-Italian clash in the playoff of the 2021 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League ended with a surprising result.


Favored Sir Sicoma Monini Perugia unexpectedly lost against Leo Shoes Modena in straight sets in the first leg of the 2021 Men’s Champions League playoff quarterfinals. Partially, it was 25-21, 25-18, and 25-22 for multiple winners of the competition.

Modena, who finished 7th in the SuperLega regular season, unlike Perugia who won it, and had only 3 days to prepare for the match (Perugia had a 10-day break) dominated the match from start to finish. So, in the rematch at their PalaBarton, on March 2, the ‘Block Devils’ will need a great reaction to avoid the shocking elimination from the Champions League.

Luca Vettori top-scored Modena with 15 points, while American Micah Christenson made 4 blocks. Cuban-Polish Wilfredo León tallied 13 points for Perugia. Argentine Sebastián Solé set up 5 blocks.

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
