Portuguese titleholders Benfica Lisboa came very near to qualifying to the 3rd Round of the 2020 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League.

 

Benfica Lisboa ran over Champions League debutants OK Budva from Montenegro at home in the first leg of the 2nd Round: 3-0 (25-15, 25-17, 25-18). Benfica’s attack was so successful today that it left rivals without a single block throughout the entire game. Numbers don’t lie and they say that Benfica had a 75% team’s attack success rate and 75% positive reception. It was by far better output in both elements compared to the Montenegrin side: 55% attack and 60% reception.

Austrian international Peter Wohlfahrtstätter top-scored for Benfica with 13 points, while libero Ivo Casas made 80% reception (15 digs, 53% excellent). The opposite hitter from the Dominican Republic, Henry Omar Tapia, scored as many as 44% of all of Budva’s points: 22 points.

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

If the process is obviously corrupted then it should be bypassed - FiVB should be objective, in this case they were not. Leal's deserving of the award IS the point, otherwise what is? And I doubt anyone would call FIVB shenanigans a 'process' LOL. They were clearly wrong and deserved to be called out for it. Why should Leal suffer the prejudice. Reply

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
