Osasco São Cristóvão Saúde beat Curitiba Vôlei in Round 12 of the 2020/21 Brazilian Women’s Volleyball Championship in a match marked by a return of Tandara Caixeta to the court.

 

Osasco beat Curitiba by 3-1 (19-25, 28-26, 25-21, 25-20) at home in Round 12 and, with the fourth win in a row, kept the vice-leadership of the 2020/21 Brazilian Women’s Superliga Banco do Brasil regular season, having the same number of points as leaders Itambé Minas (33).

The Olympic champion Tandara returned to playing after overcoming Covid-19, due to which she missed the last two matches of Osasco in 2020. She highlighted the match with 33 points. Mayany Souza set up 4 blocks, while Camila Brait had 82 % reception (17 digs; 59 % excellent).

Although the jerseys and logos on them pointed to one of the biggest sports rivalries in the country, a volleyball duel of Sesc RJ Flamengo and Fluminense, valid for a delayed fifth round, was far from a fierce battle. The former absolutely dominated (3-0: 25-11, 25-15, 25-16), which was expected given the positions these two hold in the charts (Sesc fifth, Fluminense 10th).

The winning side was led by Lorenne Teixeira (15 points), Valquíria Dullius (6 blocks), and Ana Cristina Souza (92 % reception; 12 digs, 17 % excellent).

FIVB makes changes to several rules to improve attractiveness of play

Fivb is corrupt! Why are eczasibasi and vakifbank going against lowest ranked teams in final and they orchestrated it in a way where either team could make it to final. Why because they know Conegliano and novara could eliminate them now. Coincidence???? Reply
