EMS Taubaté Funvic swept Minas Tênis Clube in Game 2 of the 2020/21 Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff finals and defended the title in the competition.


The 2nd-seed Taubaté gave no chance to no.4 Minas in Game 2 of 2020/21 Brazilian Men’s Superliga Banco do Brasil playoff finals, held in the bubble in Saquarema.

A team from the São Paulo State made sure to confirm the role of the favorite on the paper and swept the series by a 2-0, even though they narrowly escaped a defeat in the first match. Today, it was 3-0 for Taubaté, partially 25-20, 25-22, and 25-17, by which they won the 2nd consecutive championship title (the last season was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic – Taubaté were no.1 at the moment of the cancellation).

Douglas Souza was the top scorer today with 15 points. His teammate Bruno Rezende ‘Bruninho’ was named MVP of the finals but not of the entire Superliga this season – it was Maurício Borges.

TUR W: Thai star Ajcharaporn continues career in Turkey

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!
