Another loss for Verona, this time on the home turf versus Sir Safety Conad Perugia, after the bad loss last thursday in Modena in Del Monte Italian Cup Quarterfinals. This time Nikola Grbic ‘s team faced this challenge with the right attitude, but in this early season, Sir Safety is really too much for everybody. In first set Verona suffered alot Perugia’s serves, losing clearly 25-16. In the second Verona tried to fight back, good in serve and down the net, but once again, in the crunch time, Perugia took the lead with Zaytsev and Atanasijevic (Mvp of the game), and won 25-21. Same plot also in the third, with Calzedonia and Sir Safety on the edge until the crunch time, when once again Lorenzo Bernardi’s team took the lead and never looked back, by winning set and match 25-19. It was a great performance for Perugia, still undefeated in this season, showing a great display of power onto all the teams. On the other hand some steps ahead for Verona, but they seems to be still far from the powerhouses of the tournament.

MVP: Aleksander Atanasijevic (Sir Safety Conad Perugia)

Nikola Grbic (Calzedonia Verona): “I knew they would play this way, we are trying to face every game with hustle and aggressivity. We have to improve our play, the mechanisms and our chemistry. We need patience, we don’t have to forget that we have alot of brand new players, some of them for the first time in Italy”.

Lorenzo Bernardi (Sir Safety Conad Perugia): “I’m satisfied, we played a great game. We are not at the top, but we are on the right path, we have some great moments, but also some bad moments. We have still room for improvement, especially in break. We preparred the game in othet way, we did not expected that Verona would gain so easily side outs, and their strong servers put us in troubles a bunch of times. We have to improve on these aspects”.
