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: 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
