Igor Gorgonzola Novara set off their title defense campaign in the 2020 CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League with an easy victory over pool stage debutants Khimik Yuzhny.

 

Novara recovered well from losing the recent Italian Super Cup to Imoco Volley Conegliano and trampled over Khimik, the first-ever Ukrainian team in the pool stage of the Champions League, in Pool C. The difference between these two sides was enormous in favor of titleholders: 3-0 (25-17, 25-10. 25-7).

Fully recovered Serbian opposite hitter Jovana Brakočević Canzian put down 20 points for the winning side, while American Micha Hancock served 5 aces.

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
