Italy: Modena defeat Perugia in Game 1 of semifinals!

2 min read

An amazing Leo Shoes PerkinElmer Modena, fourth-placed in regular season, conquer one of the fieriest grounds in Europe, Perugia’s PalaBarton, celebrating a very convincing 1-3 (22:25, 25:22, 22:25, 20:25) victory in Game 1 of the 2021/22 Italian SuperLega Credem Banca playoffs semi-finals against regular season winners Sir Safety Conad Perugia.
Thus Modena took the first (but very important) step towards the final. Andrea Giani’s side played at very high levels, giving rivals only one set, the 2nd, in which, among other things, they also found themselves ahead 9-5.
The Dutch Nimir Abdel-Aziz top-scored the winners with 22 points and 55% in attack, while the Frenchman Earvin Ngapeth served 4 aces and was named MVP of the match with 20 points and 34% in attack.
On the other side, Cuban Wilfredo León put down 19 points including 5 aces, but his attacking efficiency wasn’t too representative (37% through 11/30). Moreover, a bad American Matt Anderson (only 3 points) was replaced by the head coach Nikola Grbić with Plotnytskyi (7 points and 39% in attack) in the 2nd set and returned to the court only briefly, in the 4th set.

The match ended in a very nervous way, with some bickering between Leal, Travica and Perugia’s players.
