SL Benfica won the Portuguese Men’s Volleyball Super Cup for the eighth time.


By beating AJ Fonte do Bastardo in the city of Almada by a 3-0 (25-14, 25-18, 25-22), SL Benfica won the Supertaça Honda 2019. Thus, the team from Lisbon won the back-to-back trophy in the competition and gained self-confidence for the rest of the season in which they will defend the national championship title as well.

Brazilian outside hitter Raphael Oliveira “Rapha“ top-scored for Benfica with 10 points. The Cuban veteran Sirianis Hernández, who was building his career in the Middle East after being caught using doping in 2010, noted 10 points as well but for the losing side. Benfica lifted the Super Cup trophy for the eighth time (ninth counting the old format), the most in the history of the tournament.

A few days ago, the Women’s edition of this year’s tournament got its winners, too.

BRA M: So far so good for Cruzeiro – 2 wins in as many games

First things first, I know you will delete this coment, because this is a critic to WOV.. Sada doesn’t win big a long time... They lost Supercopa to Taubaté like they were juvenile team. Then they win first two games against low level teams and you write they are “ready to regain Superliga title”???? What kind of joke writer are you??? Reply

RUS W: Busato says he’ll call Kosheleva for national team preparations for Tokyo Olympics

The Russian team needs her, badly. She used to be one of the top attackers in the league. Even Zhu Ting paid her a huge compliment saying she contacts the ball at such heights thus making it hard to block her. Reply
