Italy: Padova nearly to shock Trento again, unstoppable Perugia with their 19th straight victory!

Fourth-placed Itas Trentino barely avoided an upset against Kioene Padova: they achieved hard-fought victory in a match that lasted almost two and a half hours that was valid for Round 20 of the 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season (19:25, 25;20, 25:18, 28:30, 20:18). The hosts pushed the match deep into the overtime of the tie-break in which they squandered the lead of 12-9, failing to repeat a stunt from the first half of the season when they beat today’s rivals. Serbian outside-hitter Uroš Kovačević was the top scorer for the winners with 20 points, while Cuban Fernando Hernández scored 31 for the home team.
Unstoppable Sir Safety Conad Perugia noted down 14th straight victory in the competition, 19th straight victory overall. This time, they beat Piacenza in four sets.
Cucine Lube Civitanova swept Ravenna in straight sets to tie with Perugia at the top of the standings: both collected 48 points but Perugia have one victory more than Lube and are at No.1.
Third-placed Leo Shoes Modena easily beat Allianz Milano to record 6th win in a row in SuperLega, 8th win in a row including all competitions. Milano suffered 3rd successive defeat and now have only theoretical chances to reach the top 4 until the end of the regular season.
Close the picture four-sets-victory of Top Volley Cisterna vs. last placed Sora.
