Ślepsk Malow Suwałki staged a sensation in Round 24 of the 2019/20 Polish Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.

 

Ślepsk Malow Suwałki, 11th in the charts prior to the match, beat one of the major title favorites PGE Skra Bełchatów by a 3-1 (16-25, 25-22, 25-21, 28-26).

Thus, the newcomers in the 2019/20 PlusLiga interrupted huge series of wins (10) of the Bełchatów team, who couldn’t count on the starting outside hitter Artur Szalpuk due to injury. The Frenchman Nicolas Szerszeń highlighted Ślepsk with 20 points (82.61% attack, 19/23). Iranian Milad Ebadipour scored 20 points as well, but for the losing side.

The victory pushed Ślepsk to the 7th place in the charts, which means to the playoff zone. As for Skra, they remained 3rd placed but now with 5 points less than the leaders VERVA Warszawa ORLEN Paliwa, who defeated Indykpol AZS Olsztyn by a 3-1.

RUS M: Verbov no longer head coach of Zenit-Kazan

This was expected considering the worst season Zenit had this year. From the absolute domination at the national and international level, they became average team. If Alekno comes back, Mikhaylov goes back to the opposite spot, and they find one great outside hitter they might be able to form great team again. Reply
