676 0

United Volleys Frankfurt had a great debut in the Champions League!

 

They defeated Soligorsk away in straight sets to mark their first appearance in this competition as an excellent game. The third-placed team in Germany, in the last season, now needs to take one set to advance to the next round.

"At the start, we were shy in our actions. Frankfurt had a good defense and serving skills. At the end of the second set we had a chance, but we could not score an important ball,” says Viktar Beksha, head coach of Shakhtior.

"We are satisfied with the result in Minsk. We were not nervous, all the players acted tactically and confidently. There are new players in our team at the start of the new season, who are successfully playing in the club right now," says Stelio DeRocco, head coach of United Volleys Frankfurt.

ITALIAN CUP M: Trentino drop 2-0 in sets, Lube become first finalists

Trentino really started fast in set 1 and 2 and looked really smooth but Lube's experience and identity showed through when it counted. Bruno found the hot spikers at the right time and Simone Gianellli didnt feed the ball enough to his middles and Russell who hit .680 and zero errors. Both Trentino's other pins received more sets and far lower scoring percentages. Doesn't look like Kovacevic will be back this year to form so the coaches need to be smarter.

Hoping the Perugia/Modena match is as good. Reply
