Igor Gorgonzola Novara set off their title defense campaign in the 2020 CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League with an easy victory over pool stage debutants Khimik Yuzhny.

 

Novara recovered well from losing the recent Italian Super Cup to Imoco Volley Conegliano and trampled over Khimik, the first-ever Ukrainian team in the pool stage of the Champions League, in Pool C. The difference between these two sides was enormous in favor of titleholders: 3-0 (25-17, 25-10. 25-7).

Fully recovered Serbian opposite hitter Jovana Brakočević Canzian put down 20 points for the winning side, while American Micha Hancock served 5 aces.

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

I don't know about this. I think Haak is doing well but not great since she is the highest paid player on the team. Haak has been working really hard, lost weight to jump higher, hit the ball well but just not putting the ball away on her attacks. Gabi is a good attacker but she is just too short therefore being blocked easily. They had 4 match points against Imoco but failed. I believe the key reason is they don't have enough offensive plays to confuse the defense. The blame should be on the whole team including the coach. Ebrar is practically useless, Rasic's blocking is just not the same and their defense overall is lacking. I also think Vakifbank is rethinking about Zhu Ting seeing how serious her wrist injury is.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

Re: @Agguerro Because this will lead to anarchy where individual players are deciding who deserves an award. No one is always right, and we all know that FIVB is more wrong than right. But it is FIVB competition and they make or change a rule as they see it fit. Like reducing number of participants to 4 this year. Or awarding the best setter and MVP award to the same person although in the past those two awards were intentionally given to two different players?
Did you ever wonder why Perugia and Trentino, last year champion, don't participate anymore? Because they don't want to be part of this nonsense competition that doesn't mean anything. But if Lube accepted to be part of, then they should follow the rules they accepted. Reply
