SL Benfica lifted Taça de Portugal (Portuguese men’s volleyball Cup) for the 18th time in the club history, the second time in a row.

 

By beating AJF Bastardo in the final that was held in the city of Sines by a 3-1 (26-28, 25-16, 25-22, 25-20), SL Benfica increased the advantage on the table of the eternal national cup conquerors in Portugal. Now, the Lisbon team have 18 trophies (six times in the last 11 finals) while their closest followers SC Espinho remained at 12.

According to the Portuguese Volleyball Federation website, the match was filled with many errors on both sides, especially in the service, in which Benfica’s greater offensive power prevailed.

An experienced Brazilian opposite Théo Lopes top-scored for Benfica with 27 points (3 aces, 3 kill blocks), while Ukrainian Vitalii Sukhinin made 24 for Bastardo.

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

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
