2 min read

If yesterday Modena defeats Ravenna in straight sets, today also Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza and Allianz Milano opened their respective series of the 2020/21 Italian Volleyball Championship playoffs with wins.
The no.6 in the charts Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza won Game 1 of the Preliminary Round of the Italian SuperLega Credem Banca against no.11 Kioene Padova. Led by German Georg Grozer, MVP of the match and author of 19 points including 4 aces and Frenchman Trevor Clevenot, 15 points and 64% in attack, the hosts prevailed by a 3-1 (22:25, 25:22, 25:19, 32:30). Padova, on the other hand, was hit by bad luck: Tonček Stern was unable to help his teammates due to an injury during the warm-up.
Also the post-season journey of 8th seed Allianz Milano’s began with a victory: the team coached by Roberto Piazza overcame 9th seed NBV Verona in 4 sets mostly thanks to the Frenchman Jean Patry, author of 21 points, Tine Urnaut, 16 points, and Matteo Piano, 15 points who also contributed with 4 of Milano’s 12 winning blocks (photogallery of the match here). MVP of the match setter Riccardo Sbertoli.
