Coppa Italia: Milano and Piacenza make upsets in quarter-finals! Lube and Modena knocked out. All easy for Trento

3 min read

Allianz Milano achieve a historic result. They eliminated Cucine Lube Civitanova in the quarter-finals of the 2021/22 Italian Volleyball Cup, Del Monte Coppa Italia SuperLega, and advanced to the Final Four for the first time in club history.
By beating the champions of the last two editions and finalists of the last 5 editions on the road 3-1 (22:25, 25:19, 20:25, 27:29), the team commanded by Roberto Piazza qualified to the Final Four, scheduled on March 5-6 in Casalecchio di Reno.
It was a surprising result, but not too surprising given that Lube played without Juantorena, Kovář, and Anzani.
American Thomas Jaeschke top-scored Milano with 18 points, while the Frenchman Barthélémy Chinenyeze set up 5 blocks and made a 77% attack (10/13).

….but this doesn’t conclude upsets in the Italian Cup tonight, as Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza eliminated super favorite Leo Shoes PerkinElmer Modena whose 10-game winning streak in domestic competitions came to an end.
Piacenza returned to the Final Four after 5 years, by beating the rivals
by 1-3 (20:25, 25:22, 21:25, 24:26).
A match ended amid controversy for an attack out from Modena, but with the ball that clearly touched Holt’s head.
A touch that, however, was not detected by the referees: from possible 24-23 for Modena to 23-24. Among the controversies of fans, players, and the technical staff there is also a yellow card.
Then the Brizard setter closes the game in the second match ball with an ace on Rossini.
Controversy or not, Piacenza deserved the victory, also helped by the 34 total errors of Modena (20 in the last two sets).

All easy, on the other hand, for Itas Trentino, who gave no chance to Vero Volley Monza (still without Grozer) to do what Milano and Piacenza have done before that, and earned themselves a clear straight-set triumph (25:16, 25:13, 25:21).
Lavia (at the end top scorer with 16 points), Lisinac (very good in blocking, with 5 points from this element), setter Sbertoli and Zenger (MVP for his great performance in defense) led the winners to semifinals.
