Proton caused an upset in Round 4 of the 2019/20 Russian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season by beating Uralochka-NTMK.

 

Uralochka-NTMK were undefeated in the 2019/20 Superliga Parimatch in the first three rounds, which was a surprising result by itself. Thus, they imposed themselves as favorites on paper against the visiting side od Proton. However, the Saratov team showed that the Russian Championship will definitely be highly competitive this season - they beat Uralochka-NTMK by a 3-2 (16-25, 27-25, 25-16, 22-25, 15-13) and leveled with them at 3-1 but remained three points behind them in the charts (10-7). On the other hand, Uralochka failed to take over the lead in the standings that remained in the hands of Lokomotiv. Kseniya Parubets made an outstanding display against Proton with 37 points! Moldovian Aliona Martiniuc scored 24 points for the winning side, while Yuliya Grigoryeva set up 6 kill blocks.

Whilst the defeat of Uralochka can be considered as a surprise, the defeat of Dinamo Moscow can’t, even though they carry a Superliga crown. Zarechie-Odintsovo inflicted the third defeat of the season for the team from the Russian capital. Dinamo Moscow squandered two-set advantage and succumbed in the tie-break. Their opposite hitter Nataliya Goncharova was the top scorer of the match with 32 points, while the prospect outside hitter Viktoriya Russu tallied 28 points for Zarechie-Odintsovo.

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.

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

I just knew from the start of the 2019-2020 season Vakifbank will still have an addition in the roster. I think they used the first half of the season training and exposing Karakurt in preparation for the Olympic Qualification. Reply

TUR W: VakıfBank’s hellish plan – Bartsch to come in January, Egonu in summer!

I don't know about this. I think Haak is doing well but not great since she is the highest paid player on the team. Haak has been working really hard, lost weight to jump higher, hit the ball well but just not putting the ball away on her attacks. Gabi is a good attacker but she is just too short therefore being blocked easily. They had 4 match points against Imoco but failed. I believe the key reason is they don't have enough offensive plays to confuse the defense. The blame should be on the whole team including the coach. Ebrar is practically useless, Rasic's blocking is just not the same and their defense overall is lacking. I also think Vakifbank is rethinking about Zhu Ting seeing how serious her wrist injury is.
