The match was valid for Round 11 of the 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season, while the other today’s duels were part of Round 4.

This is a very impressive start for Lube. They still serve and block very well......Perugia not so much.

Perugia is in trouble this year with a record of 10-10 in sets and currently in 5th place. Most every team is improved this year and having to rely on Leon to separate games for you is not the answer Perugia can rely on in this league.
Lube 10 aces (Bruno - 4aces....wow)
Perugia 5 (Leon 1ace) not enough.

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.

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
