Modena Volley was so close to its second consecutive loss in Serie A1, but Calzedonia Verona missed a great opportunity to throw the leader on its knees – 3-2 (25-20, 22-25, 21-25, 32-30, 15-12)!



Definitely, Modena is in a little crisis. After losing to Energy T.I. Diatec Trentino in the last round, the team that holds the first place in the standings survived a thriller in the 12th round.

Verona had 2-1 lead in sets, but Modena was led by 4,500 of its spectators and won the real spectacle in the fourth set – 32-30.

When home team managed to overcome that, in tie-break it had the dominance – 5-3, 12-10 and final 15-12.

Modena had the unstoppable duo – Earvin Ngapeth (22) and Nemanja Petrić (21).

Taylor Sander with 21 and Mitja Gašparini with 17 were the most efficient in Verona.

Exprivia Neldiritto Molfetta caused a huge upset by defeating Cucine Lube Banca Marche Treia with 3-2 and now is only 3 points away from the play-offs. The victory over the current champion of Italy is considered as historical in the local media.

Almost every set was filled with drama – especially the first – 39-37 for Lube!

Maurice Armando Torres, the newest reinforcement of Molfetta, had a stunning debut – 31 point. Alen Šket added 23.

In Lube, who suffered its second defeat in a row, Simone Parodi collected 21 point and Bartosz Kurek 18.
