ITALIAN CUP M: Perugia retain the trophy after being down 2-0, Lube’s another fail in the final…

1468 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.

BRA M: Both foreigners leave Cruzeiro – Sander goes to Russia, Le Roux’s destination unknown

Uriarte is coming to Sada and Otavio too, so they will need probably a new libero and a very good player to replace Sander, Sergio is 40 years old and Sada tried Thiago Brendle but he will be on Sesc next year, so theres a one place for a foreigner player Reply

ITA M: Modena tie the series vs. Perugia, Lube close to clinch the spot in the finals

'If I were Trentino I would serve every ball at Yolanda Leal. He is a terrible passer'. Not only Leal, ALL the reception of lube is terrible. just close your eyes and serve that will be an ace or will be B or C pass. Balaso for me is the real problem, because both Leal and juantorena arent reception especialists, they have a strong attack but they lack in reception. Because of that, you NEED to have a good reception from your libero and balaso simply has one of the worses receptions on libero that i saw. a libero having so many C passes from easy serves or committing mistakes on reception destroy a team, imagine a team that already has a very bad reception like juantorena and leal Reply
