Il Bisonte Firenze, who arrived at the Monza Arena with the desire to continue to the precious success obtained this week in Conegliano but never really able to scare Danesi and her companions.

Casalmaggiore-Cuneo 1-3 (24-26, 26-24, 17-25, 23-25)

Casalmaggiore is a flash team, which has never played a tie break. Cuneo, on the other hand, is used to marathons. It may be for this reason that, in a race that does not last five sets but is extended beyond measure (two partial to the advantages and the last one almost reaches it) in the end the Piedmontese win, who shorten in the standings and probably compromise – calendar in hand – the qualification of the Heavy Transport to the Italian Cup. The first two sets are identical but mirrored, that is, they turn the other way around: Casalmaggiore dominates the first until 15-9, then Gicquel revives Cuneo who, also taking advantage of Caruso’s verve and Jasper’s punctuality, comes back up to 17-19 with a 10-2 run. However, it goes to the advantages, because Braga remedies his mistakes in reception, after which the Brazilian wastes the serve and Jasper draws the hands out of 0-1. On the wall Cuneo struggled a lot at the start, but then he seems to dominate in the fundamental (he will finish 14-5) and in the race. Jasper’s block on Rahimova is the photograph of the first part of the game, with the Azerbaijani still out of condition, but from 11-16 (Gicquel stops Braga) it goes to 20-19 for Casalmaggiore with a counterbreak that overturns the set as already happened, with reversed parts, in the first part. A new point to point, with the video check to increase the tension, is resolved by Shcherban with two dunks in a row to the advantages. The third set is the only one really dominated by one of the two teams: it is Cuneo who always exploits the wall (Signorile puts his own, as well as a lucid direction) and for Casalmaggiore Malual is not enough, who also plays a few points but almost all Well. From 15-19 onwards Cuneo no longer allows Casalmaggiore to return. The fourth set is as intense as the first two: no one tears up until 17-20 on Shcherban’s error that seems to direct the game. But no: the Vbc also goes ahead on 23-22 thanks to a positioning error of the Cuneo defense on Braga’s lob. But then Cuneo decides to leave the ciapanò and with Jasper and Gicquel, not surprisingly the best, closes the practice.
