Cucine Lube Civitanova scheduled a duel against Itas Trentino in the playoff semifinals of the 2020/21 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship.


The regular season vice-champions Cucine Lube Civitanova accomplished the mission. After prevailing in Game 1 of the playoff quarterfinals of the 2020/21 Italian Men’s SuperLega Credem Banca at home, the team commanded by Gianlorenzo Blengini beat 7th-seed Leo Shoes Modena on the road, as well, and eliminated them from the competition.

The reaction of Modena to a defeat in the first match led to the victory in the first set, but from then onwards, the titleholders took the initiative and, despite the absences of Luciano De Cecco and Yoandy Leal (positive to Covid-19), got to 3-1 (23-25, 25-21, 25-20, 25-22). Luxembourger Kamil Rychlicki top-scored the winning side with 19 points. Cuban Robertlandy Simón set up 5 blocks and had 83 % attack (10/12).

The path of Lube in the playoffs will continue against the first team who secured a place in the semis, Itas Trentino (series starts on March 28).

ITA M: Perugia focused on bringing Grbić

He signed a 2-years contract with Zaksa last year. He won Polish Cup with them, not sure what happened so Zaksa lost the championship. They kicked out Lube and Zenit from the Champions League and have a good chance of becoming European champion although Trentino didn't win anything this year so this is their last chance.
He started his coaching career with Perugia so everything is possible... Reply

Unfortunately there is no future for Russell. He is old and after this operation, he cannot recover and remain the same level before :( Reply

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
