Cucine Lube Civitanova tied the 2017/18 Italian men’s volleyball championship SuperLega playoff finals against Sir Safety Conad Perugia at 2-2.

 

The entire 2017/18 SuperLega will be packed in one and only game, Game 5 of the playoff finals.

The second-seed Lube tied one of the most exciting SuperLega playoff finals in recent years against No.1 Perugia at 2-2, so Game 5 will decide on the new titleholders. Or maybe, on the old ones.

Perugia showed once again how vulnerable they are when playing this season’s playoff games on the road as they suffered the fifth defeat – 3-1 (25-19, 24-26, 25-19, 25-20).

Osmany Juantorena topped Lube with 25 points. The Serbian Aleksandar Atanasijević scored 20 points for Perugia.

The championship game is scheduled for May 6.

Oh boy is this great Volleyball. As predicted the home teams win and will be the case in Perugoa. Osmany did NOT want to lose at home and to be honest this is the perfect scenario of the Superliga and the new kid Perugia. This is what guys like Zaytsev, Atanasijevic and Russell dream of. They will be monsters on May 6th. That arena will be crazy.

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply

Re: @Piker
Yeah, you are right, my bad. They are indeed out already, won matches matter. I don't see Roeselare losing to Vojvodina. Reply
