Bauru players made as many as 15 errors more than rivals (28-13). How much the players of the visiting side lacked focus in the encounter shows the moment at 24-23 for Sesc in the first set. Bauru setter, one-time Olympic champion, Danielle Lins “Dani Lins” didn’t rotate well prior to her serve and gave away the point and a set to Sesc. Tandara Caixeta and Juciely Silva scored 11 points apiece for the leaders in the charts, with the latter serving 5 aces. As for Bauru, Azerbaijani Polina Rahimova put down 23 points, including 4 aces.

Round 5 brought one more derby. After losing the Paulista Championship title to São Paulo FC/Barueri, Osasco/Audax took the revenge on the state rivals and beat them by a 3-2 (25-23, 15-25, 17-25, 25-23, 10-15). Thus, Osasco maintained their unbeaten run to four games. Not even 30 points (62 attacks!) from LorenneTeixeira didn’t help Barueri. Serbian Ana Bjelica top-scored for the winning side with 14 points.

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.
