The first game of the quarter-final clash between home team of Sir Safety Perugia and Calzedonia Verona went to the guests - 3-2 (25-18, 21-25, 25-16, 21-25, 15-12).



It is a slight surprise, but this pair is the only one without big favorite and it was supposed to be mostly balanced. So, Verona is only one step from qualifying to semi-finals.

What is surprising is the performance of the nervous Perugia, absent in reception and in the organization of the play.

The opposite of Verona, Mitja Gašparini was confident, exploiting its full potential in the attack thanks to the setting from a textbook by Manuelle Coscione.

Gašparini took 22 points, followed by two players with 19: Sam Deroo and Taylor Sander.

The best scorer of regular season in Serie A1, Aleksandar Atanasijević collected 27 in Perugia and did not have sufficient support by teammates. No one else had double digits!
