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.

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Kosheleva was without a doubt the most impressive player of the match Reply

ITA M: Lube annul powerful display of León to beat Perugia in derby of all derbies

This is a very impressive start for Lube. They still serve and block very well......Perugia not so much.

Perugia is in trouble this year with a record of 10-10 in sets and currently in 5th place. Most every team is improved this year and having to rely on Leon to separate games for you is not the answer Perugia can rely on in this league.
Lube 10 aces (Bruno - 4aces....wow)
Perugia 5 (Leon 1ace) not enough. Reply

CHN W: Kosheleva prevails in face-off with Zhu but Tianjin emerge victoriously from match vs. Guangdong

Guangdong is putting too much on Kosheleva. The team should also do their job. I'm a fan of Zhu but I want Kosheleva to shut her down. Hooker is also being under utilized. They rarely pass the ball to her. The CVL also seems boring than the CEV (European VB). Reply
