The great return of Wilfredo Leon. Demonstration of strength in the Champions League
There was no rest this time. The away meeting with the team from Ankara promised to be the most difficult task for Perugia in the group stage of this year’s Champions League. So Anastasi bet on Leon, the second host was a Ukrainian Oleh Plotnitsky.

However, Anastasi was still not completely satisfied with the team’s performance, which is why Kamil Semeniuk started the third game on the court. The host of the Polish national team in the two previous sets entered the field as a substitute. Throughout the game, he helped the team significantly, scoring nine points – including one ace service.
Perugia eventually won 3:1, although especially in the fourth set, the rivals took up the fight. Leon in the first full match after the fatal fall did very well. He scored 19 points – only an attacker can boast of such a good result in the Italian team Kamil Rychlicki. As usual, he also impressed from behind the nine meter line, scoring three points with a service.
“It was nice to be back in the Champions League. I feel fine, that’s the most important thing. The match was difficult, but after losing the first set, we reacted brilliantly and demonstrated the great strength of the team. Everyone had an important part in it – emphasized Leon after the meeting on the recording made available by the club.
