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

They should just make the continental championships this year the Olympic Qualification to reduce the number of useless tournaments. Otherwise, the continental championships are useless because they no longer give world ranking points. Particularly for Asia, where Iran has not finished well since 2013 because they do not care about the tournament and send a weaker team instead of their main team. Reply
