Sesc RJ prevailed over Osasco/Audax in the biggest classic of the Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship.

 

Despite having to play without their best player Tandara Caixeta (abdominal pain), Sesc beat Osasco in a hot duel of the most-titled female Brazilian clubs (17 championships combined) by a 3-1 (25-23, 23-25, 25-20, 25-23) in Round 17 of the 2019/20 Superliga Feminina regular season. The 8th win in a row for the team coached by Bernardinho came on a night marked by a lot of nervousness and complaints, especially from the losing side, which resulted in 2 red cards for them (Ana Beatriz Corrêa “Bia” and head coach Luizomar Moura). Sesc outside hitter Amanda Francisco was the highlight of the match, scoring 18 points. Juciely Silva made 7 kill blocks. Mara Leão delivered 15 points for Osasco. Sesc moved up by one position (from 3rd to 2nd), while Osasco remained 4th and now with, practically, no chance of improving their ranking until the end of the regular season.

The leaders Dentil/Praia Clube rounded up the number of successive victories to 10 after sweeping São Paulo FC/Barueri, leaving them at single digits in the first set.

The champions Itambé/Minas recorded 6th win in a row and came in 3rd.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
