Saugella Team Monza made a huge upset in Round 8 of the 2019/20 Italian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Saugella Team Monza’s winning streak prolonged to three games despite playing European champions Igor Gorgonzola Novara on the road in Round 8 of the 2019/20 Lega Pallavolo Serie A Femminile regular season: 3-1 (25-22, 22-25, 25-16, 25-21)! For the first time this season, Novara head coach Massimo Barbolini had all players from the roster at the disposal. After Serbian opposite hitter Jovana Brakočević Canzian recovered earlier, the American outside hitter Megan Courtney has finally returned from an injury and took her place in the line-up. However, it didn’t help Novara, who are at the No.4 with 6-3 and 17 points after today’s shocking loss. German Hanna Orthmann and Dutchwpman Floortje Meijners scored 16 points apiece for Monza, while Beatrice Parrocchiale made 73% reception (22 digs, 50% perfect). Brakočević Canzian tallied 14 points for Novara.

In the match between the two 2020 CEV Champions League pool stage participants, Imoco Volley Conegliano prevailed over Savino Del Bene Scandicci, who obviously failed to recover from an exhausting five-setter against Turkish VakıfBank, which was played four days ago. Scandicci resisted only in the first set, “disappearing“ from the game in the second and third a 3-0 (25-23, 25-10, 25-15). Paola Egonu led Imoco, who are at the top of the charts (9-0), with 19 points (70% attack, 16/23).

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.

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply

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.
