Leo Shoes PerkinElmer Modena will have the chance to close the series of the 2021/22 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship semi-finals against Sir Safety Conad Perugia in front of their own fans.
The home factor continues to be a crazy variable in the 2021/22 SuperLega Credem Banca playoff semi-final series between top-seed Perugia and 4th-seed Modena. Third match and third success of a visiting side. As in Game 1, the Andrea Giani’s guys – without Yoandy Leal who’ll return in time for the next game after the reduction of the 4-game disqualification to 2 games – prevailed at PalaBarton, recovering after a 2-set deficit. Thus, this Sunday, Modena will have the match ball at home.
Among the controversies still alive for the Leal-Travica-Ngapeth case, Perugia and Modena gave life to a spectacular Game 3 of the series in which the 4th set lasted for 42 minutes and in which the Dutch bomber Nimir Abdel-Aziz showed a glamorous display of 39 points (!), including 5 aces.
