Italy: Lube Civitanova campioni d’Italia! Juantorena gives MVP award to Leal

1 min read

Cucine Lube Civitanova are still on the throne of the Italian Volleyball Championship.
The 2nd-seed closed the playoff final series of the 2020/21 Italian SuperLega Credem Banca against regular-season winners Sir Safety Conad Perugia with a 3-1 score and so they won Scudetto for the 6th time in their history, the 2nd in a row.
Unlike the previous game, Perugia fought hard in Game 4, recovering from huge deficits several times but ultimately succumbed in 4 sets – partially, it was 25:20, 25:22, 21:25, and 25:21.
Cuban-Italian Osmany Juantorena top-scored Lube with 19 points tonight and was named MVP of the playoff finals but, during the award ceremony, he decided to hand over the prize to his teammate, Cuban-Brazilian Yoandy Leal.
