Rennes became the new team to lead the charts of the 2019/20 French Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Several teams swapped places at the top of the 2019/20 Ligue A Masculine regular season. Now, it was time for Rennes to claim No.1.

Thanks to brutal display of Brazilian opposite hitter Rafael Araújo (34 points) and defensive performance of Argentine libero Facundo Santucci (81%, 16 digs, 50% excellent), Rennes defeated Tourcoing in the big match and replaced them at the forefront of the league: 3-1 (26-24, 22-25, 25-23, 25-18). Not even 94% reception (17 digs, 41% excellent) from Julien Lemay and 21 points from Serbian Miran Kujundžić didn’t help Tourcoing.

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.

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

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
