Italy: an heroic Milano defeated in Civitanova. Cisterna destroy Italian Cup winners Piacenza in advances of Round 21

3 min read

Italian 2022/23 Superlega CredemBanca Round 21 or, if you prefer, Round 10 of second leg, started today with first two games.

Prediction respected in the first one: Cucine Lube Civitanova, in fact, defeated Allianz Milano with a clear 3-0 (25:22, 25:15, 25:12) on their home court.
The guys around head coach Roberto Piazza, however, ended this game with their head held high, because beyond the result, this match will be remembered for the resilience and heart with which they played. With five athletes positives of COVID-19, they find themselves facing the match without setters, without opposites and with only Osniel Mergarejo in the position of outside hitter (and injured Ishikawa).
It was a surreal week experienced by Milano who, after the resolution of the Lega Board of Directors which allowed the regular match scheduled today, do not let themselves be overwhelmed by the bitterness of the situation, demonstrating their remarkable sporting value on the field. In fact, Coach Piazza is forced to play without setters, replaced in first and third set by the two middle blockers Loser and Vitelli and in the second by Loser and Pesaresi, playing in this way with four middle blockers at the same time on the court!
Mattia Bottolo, in Lube’s jersey, was named MVP of the game with 13 points, while Ivan Zaytsev ended the game as top scorer with 15 points to his name.

Straight sets victory also for Top Volley Cisterna…against Italian Cup fresh winners Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza!
Although Piacenza played without injured Simon, the game ended with a clear 3-0 (25:18, 25:18, 25:20) in favor of the hosts, able to take three very important points for playoffs race.
Turkish Efe Bayram was the absolute protagonist in the final of all three sets. He scored 13 points, like Dirlic and Sedlacek (14), also decisive in this victory.
