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.

ITA M: Trentino to hire bombastic duo for next season – Lucarelli and Abdel Aziz!

Re: @former_player
Those are excellent points. I feel for Kovacevic and admire him as a player, but he disappointed in big matches in the playoffs last year and has been struggling with injuries and motivation this year it seems. Russell has become a leading force for this Trentino team this year.
The Perugia - Russell return is an interesting thought if Perugia has enough foreigner room. I am curious who will set that team.
What is going on in Milan? Very quiet

Re: @Suisse It would be interesting to see how would Nimir play in a team where he is not getting the majority of balls. Your comment assumes that Trentino will get rid of MVP of last Europian championship and best outside hitter of Italian league last season, Kovacevic.
Lanza is definitely the weak spot, Perugia needs 1st class outside hitter. Maybe Russell will go back

If these rumors are true then Trentino HAS to do everything to keep Lisinac and Russell. Having top 3 level players in middle (Lisinac), opposite (Nimir) and outside hitter (Russell) positions would be enough to push past Lube. Lucarelli is very very good still not the player he was before the Achilles injury. His experience is top notch.
Perugia has to make a play to get another top outside hitter to replace Lanza who is a weakspot.
Modena may not be as complete.
Milan????
Things are getting interesting. Reply
