The titleholders EMS Taubaté Funvic saw their rivals Minas Tênis Clube having 2-1 in sets before making a turnaround to take the lead in the final series of the 2020/21 Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship.


The 4th-seed Minas were close to stunning the reigning champions and 2nd-seed Taubaté in Game 1 of the 2020/21 Brazilian Men’s Superliga Banco do Brasil in the bubble in Saquarema as they had 2-1 in sets. However, based on the pure experience of several Olympic gold medalists, the team from the São Paulo State turned the match around and came to a victory from the title defense: 3-2 (25-18, 22-25, 23-25, 25-16, 15-11).

Felipe Roque was Taubaté's biggest offensive weapon with 23 points. Maurícia Souza set up 5 blocks, while João Rafael Ferreira was superb in defense with 92 % reception (13 digs, 1 error. 54 % excellent). Cuban Yadrian Escobar and Henrique Honorato, both with 16 points, were the highlights on the side of Minas. It has to be mentioned that Matheus Santos ‘Pinta’ and Gustavo Bonatto ‘Gustavão’ had 4 blocks apiece.

Game 2 scheduled for April 17.

Re: @Nobody Cares She's 26 and her dream to come play in Europe stopped in a 12-placed team??? Ajcharaporn could have had many other better choices, even to play in a European Cup in a Romanian team. Her agency is so incompetent! Now she'll play against relegation :( So sad!
