Italy: both semifinal series to Game 5! Lube defeat Trento in four sets, Perugia beat Modena at tie break

3 min read

2021/22 Italian SuperLega Credem Banca playoff semifinals drama at their peak! Perugia and Lube tie their respective series at 2-2!

A home ground turns out to be a mere illusion for both title contenders in the face-off between Leo Shoes PerkinElmer Modena and Sir Safety Conad Perugia!
Regular season winners Perugia didn’t tremble in a sold-out PalaPanini in Game 4, brought out power, physicality and character, and once again broke No.4 Modena at their hall, just like Modena did twice in front of Perugia’s fans! Thus, they tied the series at 2-2 and postponed the verdict of the semi-finals to the decisive Game 5 on Wednesday, on their home soil.
In a match of a great intensity and in which Yoandy Leal returned to the Modena squad after a reduction of the disqualification (but didn’t spend his usual number of minutes on the court), Perugia first went a set down, then ahead 1-2 and, in the tie break, found the energy to fight and ultimately win.
Cuban-Polish Wilfredo León highlighted Perugia with 20 points (including 5 aces) and was named MVP of the match, while Argentine Sebastian Solé made 5 blocks.

On the other semifinal series, No.2 Cucine Lube Civitanova appears as a completely different team in the last week. On the road, in Game 4 against No.3 Itas Trentino, the titleholders celebrated a 4-set victory to tie the semi-final series (2-2). Being two matches down, Gainlorenzo Blengini’s men managed to rise up with two victories in a row, bringing home factor back in their favor for a decider.
Cuban Robertlandy Simón was the most prolific player on the winning side with 20 points, including 5 blocks.
