EMS Taubaté Funvic beat Sada Cruzeiro on the road and took over the leadership of the 2019/20 Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Taubaté took over the leadership of the 2019/20 Superliga Masculina regular season after beating Cruzeiro by a 3-0 (25-18, 26-24, 25-22) in the penultimate round (Round 21). The Minas Gerais team, who suffered the second defeat in a row, was the leader of the competition before the match. With this result, they exchanged their position with the reigning champions and fell to No.2. Taubaté collected 54 points, while Cruzeiro have one point less. The decision of who will advance to the playoffs as the top seed will be made next Saturday when Taubaté host the Sesi-SP and Cruzeiro visit Ponta Grossa Vôlei. Leandro Vissotto and Ricardo Lucarelli top-scored for Taubaté with 15 points apiece. There were no players in double digits in scoring for Cruzeiro. That didn’t happen to them in a long, long time…

By losing to APAN Blumenau (3-2), Sesi-SP lost all chances of winning the third position as Sesc-RJ (beat Ponta Grossa Vôlei by a 3-1) are now four points ahead of them (44-40).

RUS M: Drzyzga parts ways with Lokomotiv after winning Russian championship

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply

INTERVIEW: Hippe for WoV – “Live in the moment and make the best out of it”

'Until a year ago, Hippe was an indispensable member of the Germany National Team.' is not correct. She has not been playing for the national team since 2013. Reply

For the first time in history, Italy won’t participate in VNL

Well Sports Fans, the reality is that Italy won't be alone and you can bet more Federations will do the same as this worlwide pandemic evolves. Summer sports for all will not be happening and I can forsee European Leagues holding off until late October and November. Budgets for all clubs and federations are in a holding pattern until we get a better grip on this virus. Its actually a smart decision by the Italians. Hopefully the Atheltes use this time to rest and strengthen their bodies Reply
