There are no more dilemmas in Pool A of the 2020 CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League when it comes to which teams will vie for the quarterfinals.


Two Turkish sides Fenerbahçe Opet Istanbul and Eczacıbaşı VitrA Istanbul will compete for the first 2 spots in Pool A of which the one will secure an automatic berth for the quarterfinals.

By sweeping Budowlani Łódź in Round 4, Fenerbahçe extinguished hopes of the Polish team that they will finally survive the pool stage: 3-0 (25-20, 25-21, 25-22). American Kelsey Robinson led the “Yellow Angels“ to a win with 15 points. Ukrainian Anastasiia Kraiduba scored 17 points for Budowlani.

Given that they defeated LP Salo from Finland by a 3-0, and maintained a perfect record of 4-0, Eczacıbaşı will fight Fenerbahçe in the next 2 rounds for the top spot in the pool that will assure a direct advancement to the knockout stage.

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
