1759 2

Just like in the previous edition of the Italian national Cup, Perugia defeated Lube to lift the trophy.

 

Unlike the last year’s edition, when Perugia won the game in four sets, this time Perugia were in a very difficult situation after two sets.

Lube played at a high level and earned a 2-0 lead, but as of the third set Perugia started playing much better giving a huge resistance, which led them to an amazing comeback.

This is the first trophy for Wilfredo Leon with Perugia, who scored 26 points. The Serbian opposite Aleksandar Atanasijevic contributed with 18 points, while Filippo Lanza added 12 and Fabio Ricci 11.

In Lube, Tsvetan Sokolov scored 25 points, Osmany Juantorena 17 and Yoandy Leal 13.

This is a huge confidence boost for Perugia before the continuation of the Italian Serie A1.

Men’s Italian Cup, the final:

Perugia - Lube 3-2 (21-25, 21-25, 26-24, 25-23, 15-13)

The semifinals:

Perugia – Modena 3-0 (25-17, 28-26, 25-18)

Trentino – Lube 2-3 (20-25, 25-21, 19-25, 25-15, 10-15)

5 observations from the Del Monte Coppa
#1 Congrats Perugia, Leon is worth every Euro he is getting an more.
#2 Lube flat out ran out of steam after playing a grueling and emotional 5 setter less than 24 hours before against Trentino
#3 Modena is in trouble and doesnt look healthy for the CEV cup and holding on to 4th place.
#4 A healthy Trentino is the best 'team' in the SuperLega. They are the favorite to win this year imo.
#5 Italian A1 Volleyball is so much fun this year.

Leon is currently the best outside hitter in the world.
Modena is in trouble with Christenson's injury, they desperately need 1st class outside hitter, that is their weakest spot.
Lube has 'too many stars' syndrome coupled with the psychological issue of losing 7 finals in the row.
Trentino and Perugia are the best and their games are decided by what kind of day they have on the court but either team can win.

ITA M: Serbian Stanković in Modena, won’t compete as foreigner

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply
