Sada Cruzeiro recorded a hard-fought win against Vôlei UM Itapetininga in Round 3 of the 2019/20 Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Cruzeiro were down 0-1 in sets against the underdogs Itapetininga but kept 100% output (3-0) in the 2019/20 Superliga Masculina regular season: 3-2 (19-25, 25-20, 25-19, 16-25, 15-13). Mostly thanks to Gabriel Cândido, who poured in 29 points, the home side provided tough resistance to Cruzeiro for which Argentinean Facundo Conte tallied 15 points.

Current champions EMS Taubaté Funvic, as well as Sesc RJ, confirmed their roles of the favorites in Round 3 and beat Pacaembu Ribeirão Preto and Denk Academy Maringá Vôlei, respectively, in straight sets. Taubaté remained in the first place in the charts with 3-0 and 9 points, not losing a single set so far. Sesc have exactly the same record and number of points collected, and also haven’t dropped a single set, but have slightly worst ration between the scored and conceded points.

Volleyball proclaimed most dangerous sport regarding risk of contagion with COVID-19

I believe the study was about indoor 6's volleyball. Many folks here is the US play outdoor (and some of us play without clothes) 4 on 4 and don't high five each other. We also rotate about 5-6 balls that sit in the sun in between usage. Reply

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

Serbia's ability to be in the metals in all big competitions, the last three years, is the result of the good handling of the rest exactly after the end of the European Championships. The first matches of Serbia in vnl the last years have the same philosophy. I insist. I would prefer o metal in big tournaments from metal in every year vnl. Thw players haven't enough time for rest.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply
