Italy: Perugia ended 2021 by beating a decimated Verona in straight sets!

2 min read

COVID-19 postponed many games not only in volleyball so it’s difficult these days to organize matches.
That was the case in Italy, where Piacenza – Lube and Trentino – Vibo clashes had to be postponed, as well as in France, where only three matches of Round 14 were played.

However, in their last match of the year, Superlega’s leaders managed to beat a decimated Verona 3-0 (25:20, 25:20, 25:18) in the only Round 15 match played yesterday.
Because, in addition to the three absences announced for positivity at Covid by Bonomi, Aguenier e
Cortesia, those of the last minute have been added, with Jensen and Spirito, stayed at the hotel. Perugia, speaking of Covid, has found Rychlicki on the bench, with Anderson and Mengozzi finally negative but in the stands.
The difference in a match in which, despite a combative Verona, saw a moment of true balance only in the second set, when Perugia, from 12-6 suffered the comeback closed from the ace of Mozic who scored the 15-16, it was mostly done in serving, thanks to Leon and Plotnytskyi, with 9 aces and only 11 errors.

Speaking of Oleh Plotnytskyi, he was named MVP of the match with an excellent reception (67% positivity), 11 points in attack, and decisive also from the service line, with 5 aces. The usual Leon instead is almost “human” in attack, with 55% positivity and 4 aces, but excellent numbers for the middle blockers too: Solè 100% in attack (5/5) and Ricci 71%.
On the other side, Anton Qafarena had 14 points.
