Belogorie and Ziraat are both one step closer to the finals of the 2018 CEV Men’s Volleyball Cup.


The Russian side Belogorie Belgorod stamped Asseco Resovia Rzeszów of Poland at home in the 1st leg of the 2018 CEV Cup semifinals by a 3-0 (25-19, 25-18, 25-17), needing to claim two sets in the rematch to find their way to the final.

Resovia players looked quite indifferent on the court which was reflected with the fact neither of them had double digits when it comes to the points scored. Resovia had a poor attack, only 37% as a team, without a single kill block on their account. One of the reasons for this might be the shortened preparation time for the match due to a problem with the plane. Konstantin Bakun topped Belogorie with 14 points. The Bulgarian Nikolay Nikolov made 5 kill blocks.

The rematch between the two sides, who won their respective national championship 15 teams combined (Belogorie 8, Resovia 7), is scheduled for March 20.

The Turkish Ziraat Bankası Ankara prevailed over Calzedonia Verona of Italy on the road in the other semifinal by a 3-1 to heal the wounds which they got by early elimination in the national league playoffs. Italian outside hitter Oleg Antonov scored 22 points (2 aces, 3 kill blocks) for Ziraat. Vahit Emre Savaş added 4 kill blocks. In Verona, American Thomas Jaeschke delivered 12 points.

TUR W: Ognejnovic to replace Nootsara in Fenerbahce!?

Nootsara can play with Kim Yeon Koung in Shanghai Team for next season. Reply

Is this the most controversial point in 2018 CEV Champions League…? (VIDEO)

It's because at the end of the day: the video challenge system is still HUMAN controlled. Some people are just blind... or biased...

This is just another embarrassment for the sport of volleyball. Even with replay technology, they still somehow manage to mess things up.

And to make things worse, the referee had the nerve to give them a red card for outrage that was LEGITIMATE. Stubborn referee! Even if Lokomotiv will lose the match in the end, I'm sure they would have preferred that loss instead of being cheated out of a point. Reply

If Tomkom is kept for next season (though that seems unlikely in my opinion). Fenerbache should think of getting one of her younger NT member as a receiver/wing spiker back up. Even though they aren't as tall as their European counter part, they can receive well and attack too. I'm sure they would be cheaper to higher than most other European options or are they? lol...And they already have a connection with Nootsara, so maybe they can play some fast balls every now and then to score a few quick points too.
