Sada Cruzeiro recorded the second win in as many games in the 2019/20 Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


It’s still too early to draw any conclusions but it seems that Sada Cruzeiro definitely show signs of being ready to regain the Superliga Masculina title. In Round 2 at home, the team coached by Marcelo Méndez defeated top division newcomers América Vôlei (merged with Montes Claros Vôlei) in a duel of the two sides from the same state, Minas Gerais: 3-0 (25-11, 25-18, 25-16). This win allowed Cruzeiro to spend the night on the top of the Superliga charts.

The Argentine expert gave the chance to some of the backups to start the match. The prospect middle blocker Cledenilson Batista “Pingo” took this opportunity well and led Cruzeiro with 12 points, including 5 kill blocks.

First things first, I know you will delete this coment, because this is a critic to WOV.. Sada doesn’t win big a long time... They lost Supercopa to Taubaté like they were juvenile team. Then they win first two games against low level teams and you write they are “ready to regain Superliga title”???? What kind of joke writer are you???

Not only did WOV not delete your comment (3 days after you posted it) but I found it on the home page of the site...
And if you only wanted to pass along a criticism, you should have left your last sentence out and sounded less insulting.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
