CWCH 2022: Italians Perugia and Trentino reach semis following victorious start

2 min read

After celebrating victories in their opening matches on Day 2, Trentino Itas and tournament debutants Sir Safety Susa Perugia will compete for medals at the 2022 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Club World Championship in Betim, Brazil.
The Italian sides not only advanced to the medal round, but they also confirmed the participation of two Brazilian teams in the tournament’s top-4 phase.

Following Trentino Itas’ 3-1 victory over Iran’s Paykan Club in Pool B and Sir Safety Susa Perugia’s success over Brazil’s Vôlei Renata (Campinas) in Pool A, the tournament’s reigning champions Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei and other Brazilians, Itambé Minas, have also secured spots in the semi-finals.
At the conclusion of the group stage on Friday, the semi-final pairings will be decided. Trentino and Minas will compete for the top spot in Pool A, and Perugia and Cruzeiro will do the same in Pool B.
Trentino, the most successful team in the Club World Championship with five titles, defeated Paykan, who finished 0-2.
Veteran Bulgarian outside hitter Matey Kaziyski, who won the 2009 Most Valuable Player award, was decisive for Trentino’s offense against the Iranians. The team captain scored 23 points playing as an opposite, and not only today but throughout the season, including 4 aces, while Serb Marko Podraščanin also had 4 aces. Amin Esmaeilnezhad, the Iran National Team prominent opposite from Paykan, matched Kaziyski’s performance with 23 point too.

The reigning Italian Supercoppa winners, Perugia, who are competing in the competition for the first time in their history, won their opening match in Betim more easily, defeating Campinas in just three sets. Cuban-Polish outside hitter Wilfredo León led Perugia’s attack with 13 points.
Unlike the first match, Campinas couldn’t count on their leading scorer Felipe Roque and had no player in double digits, finishing 0-2.
