Sir Safety Conad Perugia seem unstoppable in the 2019/20 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Sir Safety Conad Perugia scored the sixth consecutive victory in the 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season. The last one, for now, came in the big derby against Itas Trentino in and advanced match of Round 13: 3-1 (25-21, 20-25, 25-19, 25-23). The game has heated up in the fourth set when there were a couple of potentially exploding situations on the court. First, León and Vettori stared down at each other and then the same situation happened between León and Čebulj after Trentino’s block on the Cuban-born player.

Lorenzetti’s guys are really struggling lately as they suffered as many as the third defeat in the last four matches. Perugia came in second with 9-2 and 25 points. Serbian Aleksandar Atanasijević and Wilfredo León led Perugia with 26 and 23 points, respectively. Atanasijević’s compatriot Uroš Kovačević tallied 15 points for Trentino, while Slovenian Klemen Čebulj made 81% reception (16 digs, 44% perfect).

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
