Osasco/Audax broke the unbeaten record of Itambé/Minas in the 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.

 

In the penultimate round of the first half of the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina regular season, Osasco beat Minas by a 3-2 (25-20, 21-25, 16-25, 25-20, 15-9) and rose to the 4th place in the charts. This was the first defeat of the titleholders in the competition that came after 9 wins. Minas have now fallen to the 3rd place in the standings. The match was marked with the appearance of 3 Olympic winners (Thaísa and Jaqueline in Minas and Sheilla in Osasco) on the court and by the 40th birthday of Minas head coach Nicola Negro, whose celebration of a big day was spoiled with a defeat. Cuban opposite hitter Heidy Casanova put down 23 points for the winning side for which Jaqueline Endres made 5 kill blocks and Roberta Ratzke served 4 aces. Bruna Honório and Kasiely Clemente “Kasi” scored 14 points apiece for Minas.

With a straight-set victory over C.R. Flamengo, the vice-champions Dentil/Praia Clube moved up to the 2nd place in the standings, skipping Minas. Fluminense F.C. improved their ranking by 4 places (from 10th to 6th) after prevailing over Curitiba Vôlei (3-1).

TUR W: VakıfBank and Eczacıbaşı extend their brutal winning streaks

Sonja Newcombe's transfer to Eczacibasi was hopeless. She is very ineffective in attack. In the match against PTT Spor didn't finish 6 balls in attack. For 2 sets she didn't score any points.

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Re: @Direktor De Cecco doesn't have hitters like Juantorean, Leal, Simon. Leon and Atanasijevic are not enough. Rychlicki is already a good opposite, will only grow in the next few years to become 1st class.
I am not sure if you noticed that two Perugia starters (Lanza and Podrascanin) were benched in the 4th set. Lube is just too good, they are the best in the world right now.

Re: @former_player
Agree on that, they could try getting Toniutti or Marouf, better choices in my opinion that De Cecco. Lube won a few days ago because of De Cecco's bad decisions, Perugia attackers were in much better mood that Lube's. Reply
