Calzedonia Verona stunned one of the major title favorites Leo Shoes Modena on the road in Round 11 of the 2019/20 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Bulgarian expert at the helm of Verona, Radostin Stoytchev, took some sort of revenge on Modena for the controversial dismissal in the spring of 2018. His team inflicted the first home defeat to Modena this season. The match was valid for Round 11 of the 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season and lasted very long, for two hours and 32 minutes, with Verona being ahead of two sets and with Modena bringing the match to the tie-break. For the first time since 2018, Stoytchev has returned to Palapanini as an opponent. At the end of the 2017/18 season, his collaboration with Modena ended in a bad way and now seeks for the resolution in the courtrooms. The Bulgarian was booed by more than 4,500 spectators in the hall. The Frenchman Stéphen Boyer tallied 31 points for Verona, including 5 aces, while Enrico Cester made 6 kill blocks. Ivan Zaytsev scored 28 points for Modena, while American Maxwell Holt made 81% attack (13/16).

The Dutch bomber from Allianz Milano, Nimir Abdel-Aziz, staged a surreal display in the match against Gas Sales Piacenza. He chipped in with 41 points! The opposite hitter had as many as 60 kills and finished the encounter with a 60% attack success rate (36/60).

Re: @Unknown
They say that its because at the tie, the hitters were just tipping the ball, instead of hitting it hard. Then Gattaz, as any captain should do, tried to raise the team up in a way i think she lost it a little bit . Then Kasi was a little too empathetic and started arguing back.
I think Gattaz was wrong in the way she spoke to her team but Kasi was also wrong. Anyway, they said that they already talked and set everyhing right! #LetsGoMinas Reply
