The men's volleyball CEV Champions League has officially started today!

 

Halkbank and Roeselare have opened the new season, delivering a great volleyball show. The Turkish side was in a difficult situation but managed somehow to force the tie-break and to win the game.

Drazen Luburic (18 points) and Burutay Subasi (16 points) were the top scorers in the winning team, while on the other side Hendrick Tuerlinckx had 20 points.

Zenit SP have made a debut in the CEV Champions League, having a difficult match against the French side Chaumont. The German opposite Gyorgy Grozer has stolen the show, by scoring 27 points. It was enough to help his team score the first victory in the #CLVolleyM.

In the French team, Wassim Ben Tara has scored 24 points. 

We also had a clash of two Polish teams. PGE Skra Belchatow hosted Trefl Gdansk and fortunately for the home fans, Wlazly & co. took the win in four sets. 

However, it was not an easy game for both sides since we had two extended sets. As expected Mariusz Wlazly was the best scorer with 20 points, Karol Klos and Artur Szalpuk had 15 points each.

In Trefl Gdansk, Maciej Muzaj ended with 22 points.

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

Unfortunately, this was expected. I was surprised this hasn't happened after last season and 5 lost finals. It's always a coach that pays the price since it is easier to fire a coach vs the whole team.

It was the same in Perugia at the beginning of last season, when Atanasijevic was injured and didn't play so Perugia lost few games in the row. Sirci immediately fired Kovac, who made that team and save them previous season and brought Bernardi. Coincidentally Atanasijevic recovered at the same time and Perugia started winning. And glory goes to Bernardi :)

I love Lube but they simply have too many good players on the team and they need a coach who is a good psychologist. After losing 6 finals, they have a serious problem.

After their game vs Zenit, when they saved 8 match points, I expected them to walk over Trentino in finals. But they were nowhere to be found.
Lubre fired Christensen to bring Bruno, which was the mistake in my opinion. Christensen was the soul of that team after playing so many years for Lube.

They did an unfair thing to Sada by bringing Simon who was under contract with Sada. They brought Leal as well. He is a great player but he doesn't fit into already established attack formation with Sokolov as 1st attack option and Juantorena as 2nd.

Juantorena is 33 so he should have been replaced with Leal who is 29 if that is a long-term strategy.

But what hurt Lube the most is the fact they lost Grebennikov, who is the best libero in the world. Not sure what happened here, but Lube couldn't find a proper replacement and that is where their defense has a problem.
