Dentil/Praia Clube are two-time successive Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Super Cup winners.


Dentil/Praia Clube beat Itambé/Minas at home in Uberlândia to win the 2019 Supercopa, one week before the start of the national championship.

The team coached by Paulo Coco swept current Superliga and Cup winners in straight sets, partially 25-22, 25-22 and 25-19, despite being deprived of the help from an injured trio of starters – the opposite hitter Monique, middle blocker Carol and libero Suelen. Minas also could not count on all of their forces in the match. Venezuelan outside hitter Acosta was absent due to the right calf injury.

Praia outside hitter, a newcomer from Fluminense, Priscila Daroit “Pri Daroit“ was the top scorer of the encounter, with 14 points. On the side, the middle blocker Caroline Gattaz “Carol Gattaz“ scored 13 points.

The Men’s Super Cup between Superliga champions EMS Taubaté Funvic and Cup winners Sada Cruzeiro will be played in Uberlândia as well, on November 7.

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

Modena is on the roll. After Lube, they conquered Trentino and shown they will be formidable opponent in play-offs.
Something is wrong in Trentino land. Same players as last year but much worse results. Something will have to change soon, either results or coach... Reply

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply

Re: @Piker
Yeah, you are right, my bad. They are indeed out already, won matches matter. I don't see Roeselare losing to Vojvodina. Reply
