Diatec Trentino scored a straight-set win against Sir Safety Conad Perugia in Game 4 of the 2017/18 Italian men’s volleyball championship SuperLega UnipolSai playoff semifinals.

 

No.4 Trentino tied the 2017/18 SuperLega playoff semifinals against the top-seed Perugia at 2-2 as they prevailed in a dominant manner in Game 4 by a 3-0 (25-22, 26-24, 25-23). This means that, just like the last season, these two will play the fifth game of the series (April 18) to decide on the team that will advance to the finals. Unlike the 2017/18, Perugia will have the crowd on their side in Game 5.

Filippo Lanza topped Trentino with 13 points, while Simone Giannelli made 5 kill blocks, showing he has a lot more to offer than only a setting skill! There were no players in double digits in Lube. Their main attacking power this season, the Serbian Aleksandar Atanasijević, underachieved tonight as he scored 5 points only with a poor hitting percentage (33%).

For the sixth time in the club history, the second time in a row, Cucine Lube Civitanova will play for the gold medal. So far, they have a 100% success. The second-seed side closed the series of the semifinals against No.3 Azimut Modena by a 3-1 with a four-set win in Game 4, partially 25-19, 19-25, 25-20, 30-28.

The Bulgarian Tsvetan Sokolov and American Taylor Sander scored 15 points apiece for Lube. Enrico Cester served 4 aces. The Frenchman Earvin Ngapeth delivered 21 points for Modena.

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
