Jastrzębski Węgiel shocked Zenit Kazan in the postponed duel of Round 1 of the 2020 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League - pool stage!

 

Zenit put their participation in the quarterfinals of the 2020 CEV Champions League in jeopardy by losing their 2nd match in Pool C.

Jastrzębski made an epic comeback in the tie-break of a postponed Round 1 match (due to Zenit's participation at the 2019 FIVB Club World Championship)! After losing 2-1 in sets, the Polish side managed to tie at 2-2. In the 5th set, they have fallen into the abyss but recovered amazingly. The team coached by Serbian Slobodan Kovač made a 6-0 run at 10-14 and won the encounter against the giants from Russia.

Tomasz Fornal led Jastrzębski with 18 points. Bulgarian Tsvetan Sokolov scored 22 points for Zenit.

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
