1 min read

Cucine Lube Civitanova got off to a great start in the 2021 FIVB Volleyball Club World Championship in Betim, Brazil.
In their first match in the title defense campaign in the competition, Italian side achieved a clear victory over Argentina’s UPCN San Juan in Pool A.
To it, they were led by the duo from the Caribbean: Gabriel García and Marlon Yant, who both finished the match as the best scorers, with 14 points each, while another guy from this region excelled too: middle-blocker Robertlandy Simón, who set up five blocks.
Coach Gian Lorenzo Blengini left two big stars on the bench as a precaution given both have just recently recovered from injuries – Zaytsev and Juantorena, and his team will face Brazil’s Funvic in the next match in the battle for No.1 in the pool.

The other Italian representative in the event, Trentino, swept Iran’s Foolad Sirjan with the same result in Pool B in its first appearance in Betim and already secured the semi-final spot.
