Volero Le Cannet have returned to the country of their origin and made a step closer to advancing to the quarterfinals of the 2020 CEV Women’s Volleyball Cup.


Volero Le Cannet have renewed their rivalry with TS Volley Düdingen for a day. The team that moved from Zürich to Côte d’Azur, 2 years ago, played against former Swiss league opponents TS Volley Düdingen in the first leg of the 8th finals of the 2nd tier of European club volleyball and returned to old habits – a 3-0 win, partially 25-18, 25-19, and 25-16. The Russian international Anna Lazareva led Volero with 21 points.

Despite being at the penultimate position in the Russian Championship, Minchanka Minsk had no problems beating the Bosnian side ŽOK Bimal-Jedinstvo Brčko. The team based in Belarus left rivals on single digits in the first set and celebrated a 3-0 victory at the end.

Polish giants Grupa Azoty Chemik Police were one more team that wrote down a straight-set win.

Asterix Avo Beveren emerged victorious from the all-Belgian duel against Hermes Rekkenshop Oostende, not allowing rivals to take revenge on them for losing the playoff final last year. However, Oostende will have one more chance for revenge, in 2 weeks when the 2nd leg is scheduled.

ITA M: Modena conquer Trentino’s home court after 4 years, Perugia record 21st win in a row

This was a terrific match to watch. High level players everywhere. Christenson is having the best year of his career in my opinion. Anderson was good early, Zaytzev was great late amd Holt was automatic in the middle.
Trentino needs a complete lineup soon. Russell was the best player this match for both teams. Whoever is going to get this him next year is going to be lucky.
Can't wait for these playoffs. Reply

Yeah, you are right, my bad. They are indeed out already, won matches matter. I don't see Roeselare losing to Vojvodina. Reply

If Roeselare will win a home game against Vojvodina, forget about Zenit in next stage of competition. Reply
