Another drama in the semifinals of the Italian Cup! Modena Volley made a spectacular comeback after trailing 2-1 in sets!




Cucine Lube Banca Marche Treia was determined to go one step further in this competition that last season and enter into battle for the trophy.

It gained a promising lead in sets after it turned around the opponent’s advantage from the first. Lube’s momentum was very high in some periods of the match, which was especially visible in the third set, when it had 21-9 lead!

Modena managed to recover and regain total control in the fourth and fifth set. In the 4th, it made a small, but sufficient gap at both technical time-outs (8-7, 16-14) and 21-17 in the finish.

Same story in the tie-break: 10-5, 12-5 and finally 15-11 for the leader of Serie A1.

Modena’s trio was again up to the task – Nemanja Petrić (20), Earvin Ngapeth (17) and Luca Vettori (15). They outscored Lube’s Giulio Sabbi and Bartosz Kurek, both collected 18 points.

So, the final match will be between Modena and Energy T.I. Diatec Trentino, who eliminated Sir Safety Perugia. It is scheduled for Sunday, January 11 (17:00 CET).
