Dukla LIBEREC started out pretty well in the first set (7:5) but PIACENZA gradually found their best game to cruise to a comfortable 25-14. Dukla head coach Michal Nekola opted for changes in the second set with outside hitter Ryan Burrow joining the game and though the score remained a little close, still PIACENZA kept control of the operations to call for the 2:0 (25-20).    The guests from Italy dominated the scene in set 3 going up 8:3 and 16:6 by the first and second technical time-out to cash a massive 25-13 to celebrate their second straight win in a few days.
