Italy: Kurek scores 33 points for Monza, but Perugia save 2 match points and win. Trento also victorious in Round 3

Vero Volley Monza came very close to knocking down vice-champions Sir Safety Conad Perugia in one of the postponed match of Round 3 of the 2019/20 Italian Superlega’s regular season.
Mostly thanks to the Pole Bartosz Kurek, who has returned to his stellar levels (he scored 33 points), Monza pushed Perugia to the tie break, failing to convert two match points: 3-2 (25:19, 19:25, 25:18, 20:25, 18:16).
Due to the exhaustion of his players from the recent Super Cup, which, recall, they claimed, Perugia head coach Heynen made several changes in the line-up and rotations during the match. For instance, Poland National Team member León came in only at the end of the second set, while Serbian Atanasijević did not play the third and the fourth set at all. Filippo Lanza was Perugia’s top scorer with 15 points. PHOTOGALLERY OF THE MATCH.

On the other match played, Trentino win in four sets away on Vibo Valentia’s field. Kovacevic, named MVP of the match, was the top scorer with 20 points while Lisinac and Cebulj added 15 each on the winning side. German opposite Simon Hirsch scored 19 for Vibo Valentia.
