Results in Round 19 of the 2019/20 Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship led to the conclusion that it will be a two-team fight for the top spot in the finish of the regular season.


Favorites recorded victories in the 19th round of the 2019/20 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi. However, it’s clear that only two teams remained in the contention for the No.1 in the next three rounds of the regular season - Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta and Arkas Spor.

By sweeping Sorgun Belediye on the road, the leaders Fenerbahçe kept the advantage of five points in relation to the second-placed Arkas.

The team from İzmir was also successful today, beating İnegöl Belediye by a 3-1 (22-25, 28-26, 25-12, 25-14). Adis Lagumdžija put down 26 points for the winning side who had as many as 19 kill blocks (Mustafa Koç and Yiğit Gülmezoğlu set up 5 apiece). Cuban Osmany Uriarte scored 14 points for İnegöl.

Seven of eighth playoff participants are known. Three teams will fight for the No.8 in the rest of the regular season, and two of them lost today – Sorgun and İnegöl. In case İstanbul Büyükşehir Belediyesi Spor Kulübü beat Tokat Belediye Plevne in two days, they will settle at the eighth position in the charts.

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
