Italy: An amazing Milano recover from 0-2 and stun Perugia, Trentino survive Piacenza in quarterfinals Game 1

2 min read

A really incredible Allianz Powervolley Milano found a way to shock Sir Safety Conad Perugia after trailing 0-2 in Game 1 of the 2020/21 Italian SuperLega Credem Banca playoff quarterfinals.
They achieved what might turn out to be a key success in the quarterfinal series against the very favorite Perugia. The regular season winners failed to turn 2-0 in sets into an ultimate win and now face elimination from the 8th-seeded side: 3-2 (18:25, 21:25, 27:25, 33:31, 19:17).
The Frenchman Jean Patry top-scored Milano with 23 points, while Slovenian Tine Urnaut, named MVP of the match, also contributed with 18 points.

On the other match of the day, the no.3 Itas Trentino managed to avoid the same fate as Perugia as they also needed to play 5 sets, prevailing over the 6th-seed Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza in Game 1.
The opening game of the series between Cucine Lube Civitanova and Leo Shoes Modena, scheduled for March 14, is postponed due to Covid-19 cases within the team of the reigning champions of Lube.
