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.

I don’t know. I like Perugia but Leon is not coming to his full potential. If has to play another year with Travica and/or Oleh then he can better leave the club. Aleksander is already leaving the club and that is horrible for SIR but yet again if he wants to play and live in Perugia than that’s it. But if he wants te achieve bigger thing Ian live with volleyball than he should leave. Reply
