Italy: super Padova stun Lube! Modena down Piacenza in big match; Cisterna and Perugia ok

4 min read

What an upset today!
Cucine Lube Civitanova experienced an unpleasant surprise from Pallavolo Padova in front of their home fans in Round 2 of the 2022/23 Italian Volleyball Championship!
Titleholders succumbed to the rivals at the tie-break (23:25, 25:20, 20:25, 25:16, 12:15), who defeated also Valsa Group Modena in Round 1 with the same result. However, tonight’s scalp of the reigning champions is of even greater significance and, moreover, Padova didn’t collect a win on the field of Lube since 1995 (yes, 27 years!) while the pure win is missed since 2004.
The Japanese outside hitter Ran Takahashi (MVP of the match with 22 points, 54% in attack and 2 winning blocks), and the Serbian opposite, Dušan Petković (21 points), led Padova to the win while Andrea Canella made 4 blocks. Mattia Bottolo top-scored for Lube, for which Ivan Zaytsev played as outside hitter due to the poor physical condition of the Cuban Marlon Yant, with 19 points.

As it seems at the moment, at least after these two first games, Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza’s title ambitions are on a shaky basis.
With a great team performance, Modena beat them in four sets (25:21, 15:25, 25:22, 25:23) to earn the first victory of the season in which the Turkish opposite Adis Lagumdžija scored 21 points and was named MVP of the match redeeming for a defeat in the opening round to Padova. Yuri Romanò tallied 20 points and Edoardo Caneschi had 4 blocks on the losing side, who suffered its second defeat in as many games of the season.
Thus, the players around coach Andrea Giani made a very good prelude for the challenge in the next round against Lube.

Sir Safety Susa Perugia returned with three points in the pocket from Siena. They imposed themselves in four sets (19:25, 25:20, 21:25, 19:25) against newcomers Emma Villas Aubay Siena, not without suffering, though. However, the most important thing is that Andrea Anastasi’s guys recorded their second win in as many games.
More importantly for the fans of the italian vice-champions was that the win was achieved mostly thanks to the Cuban-Polish superstar Wilfredo León, who showed to be in optimal form after missing the entire international season due to rehabilitation from knee surgery.
He was the top scorer for Perugia with 21 points, 62% in attack, including 5 aces.
MVP award, however, just like in Round 1, to Oleh Plotnytskyi who ended the game with 20 points, 2 aces, 2 winning blocks and a superb 76% in attack.
The Serbian international Nemanja Petrić tallied 15 points on the losing side while Daniele Mazzone made 6 winning blocks.

Early in the afternoon, in first match played today, MVP Petar Dirlic (who ended the game with 24 points in three sets!) led his Top Volley Cisterna to the second win in as many games, as they prevailed in straight sets (25:20, 25:16, 28:26) over Gioiella Prisma Taranto. The winners made 10 winning blocks, against ZERO of the rivals…..
