Allianz MTV Stuttgart staged an upset in the second round of the 2020 CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League pool stage by outplaying titleholders Igor Gorgonzola Novara!


German champions recorded a surprising home win over titleholders Novara in Pool C of the Champions League: 3-1 (11-25, 25-20, 25-18, 25-23). Third time’s the charm for Stuttgart ladies! After losing both duels in the quarterfinals last season, today they prevailed over Novara, the only team from Italy against whom they ever played in the Champions League.

The American Krystal Rivers was a true enigma for Novara as she tallied 28 points! Her compatriot Megan Courtney scored 17 points for the European champions.

Also, Cansu Aydinogullari again had a great game, running the actions in a very sucsessful way.

WOV, what about your favorite setter Aydinogullari? Do you think she had a good performance in these 2 CL matches?
Because you don’t lose the chance to glorify her every time.

Re: @unknown
Apparently with Aydinogullari is extra setter, why has she not played in the best Turkish clubs so far?

quot from above: 'Also, Cansu Aydinogullari again had a great game...'

She only played in the first set and that set was drppped with big point difference.

It looks like it was the other setter who made the difference for this game.

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

Re: @Game changer Kim is doing better this season than last. I think She was made captain of Ecz Vitra. Natalia is doing fine. She does great in regular matches. The only issues I see is she doesn't kill the ball in important matches. Novara can't afford Boskovic. She is making at least $1M euros per year.

Re: @Game changer Tijana Boskovic and Jovana Brakocevic play the same position, opposite, so they will never play in the same team because none of them want to sit on a bench

But is this actually a topic on people s minds? is FIVB planning to change the rules because of the decreasing popularity of the sport? Reply
