MODENA Salvation from Valsa Modena, who needed a full result to advance and conquer the quarter-finals of the Cev Cup after beating the Germans from Lüneburg 3-2 in the first leg. The result came, although the 3:1 (27-25, 23-25, 25-17, 25-21) for the Gialloblù was certainly not easy to come by. Ewert and Co. fought with great zeal and only lost the first part in favor. A reverse result would likely have changed the dynamic of the game. Fortunately, after the second quarter won by the Germans, Ngapeth and his companions began to carve out the best possible game and finished the competition by earning the round’s passage. In the quarter-finals, Modena meets ACH Volley Ljubljana, third in the Champions League group.
Lorenzo Sala (Valsa Modena)- “We needed a ransom to get through the shift and we did it. Personally, I had my long-awaited chance and was able to show what I can do. Apart from my performance I’m very happy, tonight we played as a team, made up for some shortcomings by forming a group and managed to bring this game home ».
