Italy: Perugia closes 2020 with an easy victory over Cisterna. Trento wins big match in Modena in four sets

2 min read

As expected, the last-placed Top Volley Cisterna yields in three sets in the home match against leaders Perugia. This is for the hosts the 15th defeat in Superlega this season in as many games. MVP of the match Cuban-Polish Leon with 12 points, 3 blocks and 57% in attack. 12 points also for Atanasijevic, 8 for Solè. Also important for Sir Safety Conad were the defenses of a super Colaci on the second line, and Plotnytskyi from the service line who, with two aces, creates the gap in the first two sets.
Perugia wins the challenge in practically all fundamentals and gives itself a 2020 final as leaders in the charts. All this in anticipation of a 2021 that will start with a home big match on January 3 against Itas Trentino.
