Golden Sets were deciders in the first two rematches of the 2nd Round of the 2020 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League.


At home, Serbian titleholders Vojvodina NS Seme Novi Sad bounced back from a straight-set defeat to Romanian side C.S. Municipal Arcada Galați in the first leg. They recorded a four-set victory and pushed the match to the Golden Set in which they were a better side: 3-1 (25-20, 21-25, 25-21, 25-22), Golden Set (15-11). Thus, the only team that represents Serbia in any of the European cups this season has progressed to the 3rd Round.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
