Italy: comeback completed! Civitanova defeat Verona in decisive Game 5 to progress to semifinals!

3 min read

Cucine Lube Civitanova played as…Cucine Lube Civitanova, Italians titleholders, and managed to complete the comeback in the Quarterfinals best-of-five series against WithU Verona.
After a 2-0 lead, Verona failed to close the series collecting 3 straight sets defeat in a row, including the decisive today, partitally 25:19, 25:23 and 25:23.

Decisive, once again, Alexander Nikolov and Marlon Yant, but also the performance in serving and attack, above all to close first set 25-19. The second is exciting, with Noumory Keita who scored 9 points in Verona’s jersey, to which Nikolov promptly reply with 8 and his team, after a slow start, managed to close 25-23. Comeback from -6 also in third set, also with the help on an Eurosuole sold out (about 4000 volleyball fans), and then again 25-23.

Yant, author of 15 points through in attack 65% including 1 ace and 1 block was named MVP of the game, while Nikolov also contributed with 15, and Zaytsev with 11.
WithU Verona, who’ll continue the season by playing play offs for 5th place (and a ticket for next edition of CEV Challenge Cup), close with Keita top scorer with 17 points, followed by Sapozhkov (14) and Mozic (12).
