Brazil: shock! Itapetininga defeats Sada Cruzeiro in quarterfinal Game 1

1 min read

After a literally dominated regular season, Sada Cruzeiro is incredibly defeated by the modest Itapetininga in game 1 of the quarter-finals, collecting a totally unpredictable 0-3 home defeat.
Disastrous Lopez (-27% attack efficiency on 11 hits), but Otavio (-20% attack efficiency) and Alan (39% and 22% attack efficiency) are also bad.
For the guests, MVP the setter Carisio and top scorer the expert opposite hitter Renan Buiatti (16 points, 42% and 28% efficiency in attack). Interestingly, Sada Cruzeiro is lucky because they will also play game 2 on their home soil (as well as the eventual game 3) as the state of Sao Paulo has banned sport events due to the worsening of the pandemic.
