Extraordinary appointment at the PalaPirastu in Cagliari for the round of 16 first leg of the CEV Cup between Allianz Milano and Paok Salonicco. An absolute first for the Powervolley of the president Lucio Fusaro, who immediately accepted the proposal of the president of the Sardinia Regional Committee of Fipav, Eliseo Secci supported by the Tourism Department of the Sardinia Region. It will be played on Wednesday 13 December, with first serve at 7pm. Allianz Milano’s opponent is the highly rated Greek team of Paok Thessaloniki, a true volleyball multinational. If Allianz Milano comes to the match on the strength of six successes in the last seven matches (including the derby against Monza won 3-0 last night), Paok also made a “clear path” in Cev, with a double 3-0 against Mladost Zagreb and clearly won the last two matches of the Greek championship. In short, Piano, Kaziyski, Porro and their companions will find themselves facing a high-ranking opponent, in a continental competition that sees the bar raised every year.
