515 0

United Volleys Frankfurt had a great debut in the Champions League!

 

They defeated Soligorsk away in straight sets to mark their first appearance in this competition as an excellent game. The third-placed team in Germany, in the last season, now needs to take one set to advance to the next round.

"At the start, we were shy in our actions. Frankfurt had a good defense and serving skills. At the end of the second set we had a chance, but we could not score an important ball,” says Viktar Beksha, head coach of Shakhtior.

"We are satisfied with the result in Minsk. We were not nervous, all the players acted tactically and confidently. There are new players in our team at the start of the new season, who are successfully playing in the club right now," says Stelio DeRocco, head coach of United Volleys Frankfurt.

TUR W: The final series have begun – tie-break gives Eczacibasi advantage!

Probably Vakif will be from the top in 2018 to the bottom in 2019. Tijana will beat Zhu. Nice to see Beyza back. Vakif should but Rahimova, waive to Zhu and Ebrar. Need some good players. Reply

BRA W: Sheilla ends 3-year retirement to play for Barueri?

They all do that. She will recover physical and technical conditions like the others (Dani Lins, Thaísa) and then goes to a better team. Reply

ITA M: Perugia get the lead again, Trentino stay in the race for the finals!

Dont be suprised if both these series go to a 5th match. The pressure is growing and showing on the faces of the coaches and players. Reply
