The reigning Brazilian Men’s Volleyball champions Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei have qualified for the Superliga playoff semifinals.

 

The second seed Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei fixed a bad first impression from the opening game of the Superliga Cimed 2018-2019 playoff quarterfinals against Copel Telecom Maringá Vôlei (3-2) and this time prevailed over No.7 side without losing a single set: 25-19, 25-21, 25-17. Thus, the Contagem based team advanced to the semifinals by sweeping their rivals. Just like in Game 1, there was a tension on the court due to some controversial referee’s decisions, even after watching video checks, to which Maringá players complained. Cruzeiro middle blocker Isac Santos top-scored for his team with 15 points (four kill blocks, 85% excellent attack). American Taylor Sander was brilliant in reception with 92%. There were no players with double digits in Maringá, Hugo Silva made nine points.

The top seed SESI-SP will also play semifinals as they eliminated No.8 Vôlei UM Itapetininga. The team São Paulo beat their rivals in four sets in Game 2 to win the series 2-0.

Superliga Cimed 2018-2019 playoff quarterfinals:

(8) Vôlei UM Itapetininga – (1) SESI-SP 1-3 (24-26, 28-30, 25-22, 17-25), series 0-2

(7) Copel Telecom Maringá Vôlei – (1) Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei 0-3 (19-25, 21-25, 17-25), series 0-2

March 29:

(3) EMS Taubaté Funvic - (6) Vôlei Renata (23:00 CET),series 1-1

No.4 SESC-RJ qualified for the semifinals earlier by winning series against No.5 Fiat/Minas 2-0

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
