Sesc RJ extended their winning streak in the 2019/20 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship regular season to 6 games.

 

In the first match after winning the Brazilian Cup, Sesc RJ played C.R. Flamengo at home in Round 15 of the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina regular season, carrying the role of the heavy favorites. However, the team coached by Bernardinho had to sweat to get the victory: 3-2 (23-25, 25-18, 22-25, 25-18, 15-8). In a difficult game between the 2 sides from Rio de Janeiro, Flamengo were twice ahead of the rivals in sets but succumbed in the tie-break. Tandara Caixeta continued to impress. After becoming a part of the country’s volleyball history in the Cup final, a one-time Olympic champion poured in 26 points against Flamengo, while Juciely Silva made as many as 8 kill blocks. Natália Araújo “Natinha” made 79% reception (19 digs, 32% excellent). Maria Luísa Oliveira “Malú” scored 21 points for the losing side.

Conceding 2 sets gave only 2 points to Sesc, who reached 40. But since Dentil/Praia Clube earned all 3 points by beating Curitiba Vôlei with a 3-0 (8th win in a row), they took over the lead of the Superliga, reaching 41 points. For Flamengo, the point obtained against Sesc didn’t make much of a difference: they are still ranked 11th (penultimate position) and in danger of being relegated.

Another huge winning streak has been extended in this round: the 4th placed Osasco/Audax recorded 6th success in a row by beating Fluminense F.C. in 4 sets.

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Re: @former_player
Agree on that, they could try getting Toniutti or Marouf, better choices in my opinion that De Cecco. Lube won a few days ago because of De Cecco's bad decisions, Perugia attackers were in much better mood that Lube's. Reply

Thanks for this info. I was worried about them. Reply

Not sure this is a smart move on Lube's part. De Cocco is not the level of Bruno, Christenson and Giannelli. Maybe they should outside of Italy for great setter since they forced Christenson out who just signed a 3-year extension with Modena, and Giannelly is not leaving Trentino. Reply
