A capital performance that allowed us to go back to celebrating together with the gialloblù crowd. A few days ago, driven by a Pala AGSM AIM once again overflowing with passion, WithU Verona collected the first three points of the calendar year that had just begun, clearly overcoming Allianz Milano with the same score as the first leg. Over the ninety minutes played, the team led by coach Stoytchev found excellent continuity in the offensive phase, making the opponents’ efforts to try to counter it in vain.
For the occasion, two important initiatives took place as a backdrop: in the pre-match round table association, in collaboration with the Telefono Rosa, honored the fans present with a Pan d’Oro to support the campaign against the violence of Genre; later, some children and teenagers from ABEO accompanied the two formations during the deployment of the two formations.
As mentioned, the Scala players recorded high numbers in attack, closing with 61% positivity. Digging into the details, out of the 74 attempts, 45 were knocked down and only four errors were made. In this sense, the band trident has unleashed a high-level test. Opposite Maksim Sapozhkov finished the match as the best scorer for the 16 points overall. On the other hand, Noumory Keita stopped at 15, who won the MVP award thanks to a performance topped off with an ace, a block and a 72% attack-point percentage. Double figures also for Rok Mozic (13). Furthermore, in the direct ball exchange, the home team found the point after a negative reception in 63% of the cases.
The rearguard also performed very well, so as to end up with 47% of positive reception (64% for the libero Marco Gaggini). The fundamental where Verona made the most difference, however, is the block, having stopped their opponents twelve times. From this point of view, Lorenzo Cortesia took the stage, printing four monster-blocks, followed by team mate Aleks Grozdanov, who totaled three. This goes to certify the good understanding with the director Luca Spirito, who is also the author of a great performance.
