Last season’s play-off semifinalists Sesc RJ triumphantly started the new season in the Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship.

 

Sesc RJ achieved the straight-set win on the road against the Superliga Masculina debutants América Vôlei in the first round of the new season: 3-0 (25-14, 25-19, 26-24). The team that was established this summer by merging with Montes Claros Vôlei was a worthy opponent to the title favorites only in the third set, but that is when the strength and experience of the two Olympic champions from Sesc emerged. Maurício Borges and Wallace Souza did not have a noticeable attack success rate in the match, 29% and 38% respectively, but were on the high level when it mattered the most.

Gustavo Bonatto “Gustavão“ top-scored for Sesc with 13 points, including 5 kill blocks, while Argentinean Jan Martínez made 90% reception (10 digs, 90% excellent). Renan Moralez scored 11 points for América.

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

I just knew from the start of the 2019-2020 season Vakifbank will still have an addition in the roster. I think they used the first half of the season training and exposing Karakurt in preparation for the Olympic Qualification. Reply

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

I don't know about this. I think Haak is doing well but not great since she is the highest paid player on the team. Haak has been working really hard, lost weight to jump higher, hit the ball well but just not putting the ball away on her attacks. Gabi is a good attacker but she is just too short therefore being blocked easily. They had 4 match points against Imoco but failed. I believe the key reason is they don't have enough offensive plays to confuse the defense. The blame should be on the whole team including the coach. Ebrar is practically useless, Rasic's blocking is just not the same and their defense overall is lacking. I also think Vakifbank is rethinking about Zhu Ting seeing how serious her wrist injury is.
