The team’s starting lineup featured Recine and Lucarelli, with Leal initially on the bench. Brizard and Gironi formed a dynamic diagonal, while Ricci and Simon dominated the middle. Scanferla started as libero. Lucarelli’s remarkable performance, achieving 83% attack efficiency with 10 points from 12 attacks, was a game-changer, especially in the first set where Piacenza maintained a steady lead.

The second set saw an unfortunate turn for Recine, who suffered a back injury, leading to Leal’s entry. The set was a tight affair, but key plays, including Gironi’s ace and Simon’s powerful serve, tipped the scale in Piacenza’s favor, despite a brief lead by Benfica.

Benfica bounced back in the third set, gaining a substantial lead. Piacenza’s comeback efforts fell short, allowing Benfica to secure the set.

The final set was a nail-biter, characterized by intense rallies and scorers’ table issues. Ultimately, Piacenza clinched the match, thanks to crucial contributions from Leal and a final misstep from Benfica’s Lucas Gaspar.
