What a game, what a comeback made by Sesi! In the semifinals of the Brazilian Cup, the club from Sao Paulo returned from 0-2 deficit against none other than Sada Cruziero and scored a tie-break win – 3-2 (23:25, 23:25, 25:23, 25:20, 17:15)! Therefore, Sesi will play in the finals, while Sada Cruzeiro stayed without the 1st trophy in 2017.
Sada Cruziero had two match points in the tie-break, at 14:13 and at 15:14, however they failed to finish the game and then got punished. Sesi tied the score at 15:15, then they went in front after Yoandi Leal made a mistake – 16:15, while eventually Leandro blocked Leal for 17:15.
After the game, Yoandi Leal was so frustrated with the defeat that he threatened the main referee! The Cuban player was convinced that the referee made a mistake at the score of 15:15… Take a look at the following video and tell us what do you think.
