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

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
