Vôlei Renata made a huge upset in Round 4 of the 2019/20 Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Vôlei Renata, also known as Campinas, shocked title favorites Sesc RJ on the road in the fourth round of the 2019/20 Superliga Masculina regular season: 3-2 (26-24, 25-20, 22-25, 21-25, 15-9). Gabriel Vaccari top-scored for the winning side with 20 points. Wallace Souza tallied 26 points for Sesc, while Maurício Borges made 78% reception (32 digs, 31% excellent). It was the first defeat of the Rio de Janeiro team and also the first sets which they lost in the competition. By this, Sesc failed to reach the top of the charts, having 3-1 and 10 points and remained in third place. On the other hand, Vôlei Renata came in fifth with 2-2 and 5 points.

Knowing that Sesc suffered a defeat, the number of teams that kept the perfect record has reduced to two - EMS Taubaté Funvic and Sada Cruzeiro. Both wrote down wins worth three points in this round.

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

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply

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.
