Two advances of Italian Supelega CredemBanca Round 10 were played today.
The first is a remake of last season’s quarter-finals, and Vero Volley Monza wins a comeback from 2-0 to 2-3 on the field of Tonno Callipo Vibo Valentia a match with too many ups and downs.
For the winners, led by George Grozer (27 points also tonight, and 4 aces in the first four services of the tie break!) this is the sixth success of the season, they hook Trento to third place in the standings, thus continuing the positive trend of last season.
The hosts, without Nishida, on the other hand, are unable to interrupt the streak of three consecutive defeats, remaining anchored to the lower parts of the standings. The Brazilians Douglas Souza and Flavio are the protagonists in the first two sets, then the whole team begins to decline in effectiveness, and Monza can take advantage, winning the game under the blow of Grozer and Dzavoronok.
In the other match, another tie break for Allianz Milano, (exactly the fourth in eight games played!) and, after 2 hours and 29 minutes of play, they manage to defeat what was probably the best RCM Consar Ravenna of the season. Trailing 2-0, and 2-7 in the third set, Zanini’s team achieves an amazing comeback thanks to the duo Vukasinovic — Klapwijk, who finish the game with 26 points each.
In the fifth set Ravenna holds up to 7, then the three-point break of the rivals are decisive.
Among the winners, Jaeschke scored 25 points (with 4 aces and two blocks), while the young setter Porro, with a splendid single winning block in the tie-break, was awarded the MVP of the match.
Interestingly, Milano played without opposites: Patry had shoulder problems, after the match against Cisterna, and problems also for Romanó. And therefore, head coach Piazza used Mosca as starting middle-blocker, and Chinenyeze lined up opposite (in the 4th set replaced by Djokic and in the 5th set by Maiocchi, with the French returning middle-blocker together with captain Piano).
