Modena had the better of Trento in semi-final Game 4 in what has been a fierce and thrilling battle. That ties the series at 2-2 meaning it will all be down to the deciding game 5 in Trento. It looked like it was going to the tie-break as Stoytchev’s boys were 23-21 up in the fourth set but Modena fought back and went on a 4-0 spurt that sealed the game in front of a delighted sold out crowd.

This is the great thing about our job, this is the return you get from your sacrifices. Living those games in Modena is something unbelievable, unique. I have to congratulate the boys, they are going beyond their limits. The game looked like a boxing contest: a team like us up against a heavy weight. Today, Trento played an excellent game which shows what a great job we did. I have to admit that we had a bit of luck at the end of a fourth set, which had turned crazy. It’s obvious that Trento remains the favourite, but they will have to play well to beat us”, said head coach of Modena Daniele Bagnoli

The support of a packed gym was not enough for Macerata to seal the series. Cuneo won 3-1 and tied the series at 2-2. Both team will have to play one deciding encounter with a place in the V-Day of the 15th of May in Roma at stake.

Vladimir Nikolov (Bre Banca Lannutti Cuneo): “I am extremely happy that we got out of a very tricky situation. Our team is full of experienced players, and they are capable of giving their best in tough moments. Still, this win will not be worth anything if we don’t add another one in Game 5”.
