Cucine Lube Civitanova beat Azimut Modena at home in galvanizing Game 1 of the 2017/18 Italian men’s volleyball championship SuperLega UnipolSai playoff semifinals.


No.2 Lube were in front of No.3 Modena twice when it comes to the sets but still had to resolve the match in the tie-break, in which their rivals dropped a two-point lead (10-8). Enrico Cester turned into a hero for Lube as he finished the match with a quick attack and a kill block. The encounter ended partially 25-22, 21-25, 25-16, 21-25, 15-13.

The Bulgarian Tsvetan Sokolov topped Lube with 24 points (4 aces), followed by Osmany Juantorena, who notched 18. Giulio Sabbi scored 16 points (3 aces, 2 kill blocks) for Modena. Daniele Mazzone contributed with 5 kill blocks and 80% hitting (8/10).

Game 2 of the best-of-five semifinals between these two sides is scheduled for April 1.

No.1 Sir Safety Conad Perugia and No.4 Diatec Trentino will play their Game 1 tomorrow, on March 29.

Re: @Trem
'I do not know any Italian volleyball athlete that came to Turkey at her peak.'

ok let me give u one example: lucia bosetti,ITA national.most paid player in italian league in 2017-2018.

she played in fener betw 2014-2016 at her peak (at the age of 24)


'Egonu will never ever play in Turkey...2 reasons she is great athlete and she is interesting and provocative'

salaries offered by. istanbul clubs are also interesting and provocative. :D italian clubs are like grocery shops when campared to them. :D

have u ever wondered why superstars like KimYK,Zting,boskovic never ever played in Italy?

while egonu earned 150K in novara, zhu earned 10 X 150K (1,5 M)

btw, turkish people hasnt got any LGBT-hatred , but on the other hand no club manager want any girl in the team to be raped by our interesting and provocative star. :D (just joking) :D Reply

SRB W: Vargas chooses to play for Serbia National Team?

Re: @just thinking

Oh no, poor Poland. I bet everyone is thrilled to play against Leon in their national team. Or against Leal or Juantorena. All much better than Vargas, who doesn't even seem to have a proper spot in Serbian team.

I'm against all that crap, but if everyone else is already doing it... Reply
