Conegliano impresses in Asterix Avo's final Champions League home game: 'This was simply world class'

Conegliano impresses in Asterix Avo's final Champions League home game: 'This was simply world class'

He played 20 matches this season and won 20 matches. The run doesn't need to be more impressive to suggest that Conegliano is the absolute pinnacle of European volleyball at the moment.

The Italian team traveled to Beveren with only one goal: to quickly grab all three points. Asterix Avo managed to keep up with the guests until the score 8-10, but then the pace accelerated and the hammer of the main Swedish striker Isabel Haack took control.

The score of 11-25 in the first set was a strong signal, but there was no reason to stop the fight against Asterix Avo. The home team started the second set with renewed courage. A clever cross from Charlotte Krynecki set the score back at 3-1.

But in volleyball, only the rule of the strongest matters. Conegliano played with his opponent and conjured combinations of his hat. It was no coincidence that the dead ball – an imaginary ball from the middle – also fell right on the back line. 14-25 and therefore 0-2 as well.

As if there was another plane waiting for the Italian women, they also increased their pace in the third set.

The pressure began on the service line, and Conegliano himself was solid defensively. Polish setter Joanna Volosz – perhaps the best in the world – had a great time with the exemplary service she received. In the end, 14-25 was nothing more than a logical conclusion.

Asterix Avo also loses his fifth match in the Champions League. And now he has been permanently eliminated from the Champions Ball. A positive final note should be issued in Stuttgart next week.
