Allianz MTV Stuttgart staged an upset in the second round of the 2020 CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League pool stage by outplaying titleholders Igor Gorgonzola Novara!


German champions recorded a surprising home win over titleholders Novara in Pool C of the Champions League: 3-1 (11-25, 25-20, 25-18, 25-23). Third time’s the charm for Stuttgart ladies! After losing both duels in the quarterfinals last season, today they prevailed over Novara, the only team from Italy against whom they ever played in the Champions League.

The American Krystal Rivers was a true enigma for Novara as she tallied 28 points! Her compatriot Megan Courtney scored 17 points for the European champions.

Also, Cansu Aydinogullari again had a great game, running the actions in a very sucsessful way.

WOV, what about your favorite setter Aydinogullari? Do you think she had a good performance in these 2 CL matches?
Because you don’t lose the chance to glorify her every time.

Re: @unknown
Apparently with Aydinogullari is extra setter, why has she not played in the best Turkish clubs so far?

quot from above: 'Also, Cansu Aydinogullari again had a great game...'

She only played in the first set and that set was drppped with big point difference.

It looks like it was the other setter who made the difference for this game.

FIVB releases COVID-19 guidelines for restart of volleyball activities

At last the guidelines on Covid-19, from a top governing volleyball body.... I appreciate them. It is a progress. Some of recommendations are general, some specific for volleybal. It seems to be the soft legal instrument. Nevertheless they could assist to national VFs… Majority of recommendations are reasonable, some of them should not be a problem to kept, some will need a much bigger effort to be kept, some should be included yet. For this goal, there should be obtained a support (best voluntary) and discipline from athletes, coaches, officials, referees , medical staff, club owners, fans etc - realised what is in a stake… Media will have an important role in that..
For implementing of these measures there should be probably prepared also some Roadmap.. Perhaps it would be a suitable to consider the responsibility for pertinent officials, positions, and how to enforce crucial measures, recommendations, specified for this sport - if the situation would be worsen ....
We can hope , that these epidemiological preventive measures will be only temporary and volleyball will return soon to halls, and fans could see their teams personally.
