The strongest men’s volleyball national championship in the world, Italian SuperLega Credem Banca, saw its first match in the 2021/22 season.
Kioene Padova welcomed titleholders Cucine Lube Civitanova to the opening match of the new season in SuperLega – and lost in straight sets. The match was always in the hands of Osmany Juantorena and his companions, who were more much more constant and concrete: 3-0 (25-21, 25-20, 25-19). It is clear that Lube will again play a major role in the race for the Scudetto, especially when Ivan Zaytsev recovers from injury.
Juantorena and his countryman by birth, Cuban Robertlandy Simón, tallied 13 points apiece for Lube.
