CL W: Minchanka and RC Cannes set new record of the CEV Champions League

996 0

Two teams provided a real volleyball show, especially in the first set, when both sides played 90 rallies!


According to the CEV, it's the longest set in the women's CEV Champions League.

Unfortunately for the home crowd, the French side managed to win this part of the game and to take the lead in sets 1-0.

However, we saw a great answer from the Belarus champion, who is currently playing in the Russian women’s elite league. They managed to make a comeback and to score the first win in the Champions League season 2018/2019.

Two players in Minchanka had great displays: Bohdana Anisova and Hanna Hryshkevich, who scored 25 points each. On the other side, Christina Bauer ended the game with 22 points, while Adela Helic added 17.

EUROVOLLEY 2019 M: Vital Heynen’s surprise – makes 6 substitutions at once (VIDEO)

Very irresponsible by coach Heynen! Team could of get trouble if someone would get injured in that set. You have only 6 substitutions allowed. Reply

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

Re: @~sadaf
Issue of his statement was that he asks for restricted, limited participation of NTs, due to of absence of tight matches...Moreover he had used the argument - results 3:0. So that I have used the statistics from other competitions, where should have been much more tight matches - like VNL, World Championship, due to of selection criteria . ( I did not treat the formula of VNL at all... )
The results of this small analysis are interesting, which I did not expected - see my previous comments. Remarkable indication is that the in final phases of these tournaments where had competed the strongest NTs, which should have been on the similar/same level, the percentage of matches which had ended 3:0 is higher as in a prelimenary phase, which is also pretty high. Especially when these NTs should have been the best in the world...

However a different question is - why was increased the numbers of NTs at European Championship?
Perhaps I will try to make some remarks on one aspect of that later on, from a volleyball fan point of view.. Reply

[@John Doek] Everyone criticised VNL, Heynen being one of them, when its formula was introduced. It is mainly the fault of VNL that there is so little time to rest and prepare for bigger tournaments in the second part of national season, there is too much matches to play. Reply
