Men’s team of Al Ahly Cairo followed the footsteps of its female colleagues to win the 2019 African Volleyball Club Championship.

 

The most-titled Egyptian club Al Ahly Cairo (29 national championships) cruised to a straight-set victory over compatriots Smouha SC in the finals of the 2019 African Club Championship, partially 25-17, 25-23, 25-19. Thus, the side from the Egyptian capital won the continental trophy for the 14th time (the nearest follower on the winner's list is Tunisian CF Sfaxien with six titles). This African Club Championship trophy, third in a row for Al Ahly, came in front of their own crowd. Their dominance most clearly reflected in the fact that they did not suffer a single loss during an entire tournament: a 7-0 record.

Two weeks ago, Al Ahly got another African volleyball club champions as women’s team lifted the trophy as well.

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
