Jastrzębski Węgiel down champions Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle in Round 16 of the 2019/20 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season!


Jastrzębski are on fire! After beating Zenit Kazan from Russia in the 2020 CEV Champions League, a few days ago, they surpassed one more European powerhouse. In round 16 of the 2019/20 PlusLiga regular season, the team coached by Serbian Slobodan Kovač, inflicted the 2nd consecutive defeat in the competition to the titleholders ZAKSA: 3-2 (25-22, 22-25, 26-28, 25-18, 15-10).

Dawid Konarski and Tomasz Fornal put down 24 points apiece for the winning side, while the Frenchman Julien Lyneel served 5 aces. Kamil Semeniuk scored 22 points for ZAKSA. With the 9th successive victory in the PlusLiga regular season, but also thanks to a defeat of Trefl Gdańsk (2-3 vs. GKS Katowice), Jastrzębski firmed themselves in the 4th place in the charts. On the other hand, ZAKSA are now 2 points behind the leaders VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa.

ITALIAN CUP M: Trentino drop 2-0 in sets, Lube become first finalists

Trentino really started fast in set 1 and 2 and looked really smooth but Lube's experience and identity showed through when it counted. Bruno found the hot spikers at the right time and Simone Gianellli didnt feed the ball enough to his middles and Russell who hit .680 and zero errors. Both Trentino's other pins received more sets and far lower scoring percentages. Doesn't look like Kovacevic will be back this year to form so the coaches need to be smarter.

Hoping the Perugia/Modena match is as good. Reply
