Italy: Piacenza to quarterfinals, Verona tie series vs. Milano

2 min read

In addition to Modena, also Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza have advanced to the quarterfinals of the 2020/21 Italian SuperLega Credem Banca playoffs.
No.6 Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza were better than no.11 Kioene Padova also in Game 2 of the Preliminary Round and won 3-1 on the road (25:17, 25:20, 22:25, 25:20).
German Georg Grozer was the top scorer on the winning side but also in the whole match with 20 points of which 6 came from the service line. Lorenzo Bernardi’s team will face Itas Trentino in the next stage.

On the other match, No.9 NBV Verona don’t give up: they equalized the series against no.8 Allianz Milano at 1-1, winning Game 2 at home in 4 sets. The Verona captain Matey Kaziyski stood out in the match with 18 points, including 4 aces, while the new entry middle-blocker Zingel, was fielded as opposite in a move that probably stuns the rivals. Not by chance, he was named MVP of the match.
