Italy: Milano loses Patry (and the match) in the advance of Round 11. With Grozer and Candellaro Piacenza fly
In what, despite the postponements, is the last match of the first round, Piacenza beats Milano on the road by 3-1. The hosts, except for the first set, are never in the game and from the second set onwards, also thanks to Patry’s injury (pain in the groin), they collapse visibly without getting up again.
The numbers “are not in his favor (one block and 4 out of 8 in attack), but by himself he managed to undermine the entire reception of Milano. Amazing performance, in fact, from the service line for Piacenza’s middle-blocker Davide Candellaro: 25 services with 0 errors, 5 in the first set, 7 in the second, 7 in the third and 6 in the fourth. Candellaro aside, it is Grozer the mvp of the match: for the German superstar there are 21 points with 49% in attack on 37 attempts and 3 aces. For the hosts, a performance sufficient only for the Canadian Maar, while Weber disappointed a lot: the Brazilian opposite, called to replace Patry from the second set, closed with a 19% positive out of 16 balls. He is replaced by Maar himself in the fourth set.
Piacenza reached the 5-5 record in the 2020/21 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season.
