The Russian side Dinamo Moscow seized a hard-fought win over French champions Tours VB in the last Round 3 match of the 2019 CEV Volleyball Champions League – Men which ended in three sets but with each one being highly competitive until the very end, 3-0 (27-25, 26-24, 26-24).


The hosts Dinamo took advantage of as much as 9 errors of Tours players in the first set to maintain 3-4 point lead. It vanished at 23:20 when the French side scored 3 points in a row. Thanks to blocks of Ilya Vlasov and Romanas Shkulyavichus, Dinamo took 1-0 lead in sets.

The faith of the second set was determined at 24-24 when Tours libero Hubert Henno got a yellow card for protesting.

As for the third period, Tours middle blocker Barthélémy Chinenyeze did his best to extend the match to, at least, one more set, but Yuriy Berezhko had something else in his mind.

Romanas Shkulyavichus top scored Dinamo with 15 points while Dmitriy Shcherbinin made 7 kill blocks out of team’s total of 14 kill blocks. Latvian Hermans Egleskalns scored 18 points for Tours.

By beating Tours, Dinamo settled at the second place in Pool E with a 2-1 and 6 points while Tours have 1-2 and 3 points.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
