Sir Safety Conad Perugia is the second finalist of the 2017/18 Italian men’s volleyball championship SuperLega UnipolSai.

 

The top-seed Sir Safety Conad Perugia smashed No.4 Diatec Trentino in straight sets in Game 5 of the 2017/18 SuperLega playoff semifinals, partially 25-12, 25-20, 30-28, to clinch the series with a 3-2.

The complete change of power relations was seen tonight compared to the previous game, four days ago. Trentino had the only chance of extending the match in the third set but even then, they first had to reach Perugia’s 23-19 lead. Still, when they managed to tie at 23-23, their rivals quickly went up.

Ivan Zaytsev topped the winning side with 15 points (4 aces).

Thus, Perugia will play their third-ever SuperLega finals (2014, 2016, 2018). Their rival will be No.2 Cucine Lube Civitanova.

I hope Russell stays in Perugia. He is getting stronger and better every year.

They need to retain their coach too. imo

FIVB drastically reduces number of players per team in Nations League?

While I understand and appreciate the VNL organizers and investors want the best product on the floor everytime and all the time, each of these federations also have financial , logistical and athletic investments to consider and protect. The demands in time, travel and player health is seriously tested during this event.
This move of roster limitations is not healthy for the sport. Growth and experience within each Federation can be achieved through the VNL and expanded rosters. Here is where the next generation of stars can play side by side or against today's stars and deeper interest in each country's rosters can be generated. In addition, we all have to realize that we want to make sure the 12 teams competing at the Olympics are at full strength. This move actually hurts that possibility.
The VNL is a great tourney and still evolving in my opinion but this move is a step back. I sure hope they reverse this Reply

CL M: Decimated by injuries, Trentino fall to Lube in all-Italian derby

Something is not working well within Trentino this season. They have the same team as last year but no results. Lube is weaker than last year (Sokolov and Stankovic left) and yet they play better. Leal is playing more and Juantorena is a top-notch professional despite his age of 35, but still. Reply
