EMS Taubaté Funvic prevailed in the classic of the Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship over Sada Cruzeiro valid for the last round of the 2020/21 regular season.


Taubaté took advantage of the fact that Marcelo Méndez sent a lineup with a mixture of starters and backups and swept Cruzeiro in the classic valid for the last round (Round 22) of the 2020/21 Brazilian Men’s Superliga Banco do Brasil regular season: 3-0 (25-18, 25-19, 25-17). The match didn’t affect the rankings for the playoffs as Cruzeiro secured no.1 and Taubaté no.2 earlier.

Taubaté have to play one more match in the regular season (a delayed match against Sesi-SP) but it also won’t change anything in the standings. So, the playoff duels were defined.

ITA M: Perugia focused on bringing Grbić

He signed a 2-years contract with Zaksa last year. He won Polish Cup with them, not sure what happened so Zaksa lost the championship. They kicked out Lube and Zenit from the Champions League and have a good chance of becoming European champion although Trentino didn't win anything this year so this is their last chance.
He started his coaching career with Perugia so everything is possible... Reply

Unfortunately there is no future for Russell. He is old and after this operation, he cannot recover and remain the same level before :( Reply

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
