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.

GRE M: Filippov fails to cope with lack of discipline of Cuban duo, resigns as PAOK head coach

Hola soy el ex jugador de Paok, solo quiero aclarar la falta de respeto de esta página al publicar tal dicha mentira, sin saber la realidad del problema, como mismo ha dicho el entrenador en su entrevista nosotros llegamos al equipo sin su consentimiento por lo que desde un principio fuimos mal mirados por el asi de gratis, hasta el punto de llegar a empezar hacer gestos 'racista' como por ejemplo en los castigos de los juegos los demás jugadores llevaban chocolate como castigo y los dos 'negros cubanos' teníamos que llevar bananas... En las llegadas tardes el nos decía una hora falsa la cual a la hora de llegar ya el entrenamiento había comenzado, entre muchas cosas mas que solo nosotros sabemos.. Asi que por favor a la hora de hablar, hablen con base y no con mentiras que eso nos afecta como jugadores, entiendo que lo hacen por dinero y todo eso pero por una falsa organizada como en la que nos vimos nosotros, podemos perder nuestra carrera.. Muchas gracias... Reply
