It takes Allianz Milano an hour and a half to conquer the PalaBancaSport, beat a Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza in Game 5, a poor copy of the one seen in the previous matches and advance to the Scudetto Semifinal where they will meet Sir Susa Vim Perugia. For Gas Sales Bluenergy Volley Piacenza is now heading to the 5th Place Play Offs whose calendar will be made official in the next few hours. Play Off 5th Place in which the four losers participate in the Quarter Finals of the Scudetto Play Offs beyond Cisterna and Padova. The winner will have a pass to Europe and will play in the Challenge Cup. In front of the Rai cameras and almost 3,200 spectators, the red and whites were not good at keeping up with the pace of Milan who, after having chased their opponents in the initial part of each set and once they reached parity they always found the right extension.

MVP: Ferre Reggers (Allianz Milan)

Andrea Anastasi (Gas Sales Bluenergy Piacenza coach): “After a match like this there is little to comment other than the fact that we did little on the pitch and our opponents found few difficulties on their way. The attitude wasn’t the right one and this was certainly the least balanced match of the series. Our season was disappointing, you can’t say otherwise.”

Marco Vitelli (Allianz Milano): “It was a great satisfaction, even if I must say that we always believed in it, we believed in it with the series down 2-1, down 2 sets to 0 at home. It was also a great satisfaction on a personal level that I had been waiting for for a long time. What if I expected to finish 3-0 tonight? Honestly no, we always had a 3-2 against Piacenza, but there was something different tonight. Tomorrow we rest, but we already have to think about Perugia and I don’t want to say anything, but last year was good for us.”
