The Belgian team Maaseik is having the best start in the CEV Champions League in their history, considering the names of the rivals in Pool C.

 

After beating Halkbank away in the first round, Maaseik have downed the Russian powerhouse Zenit Kazan after an unbeliavable comeback, from 0-2 to 3-2. 

We can say that it was a sensational performance by Maaseik, who managed to make a big comeback even though the Russian team had a 2-0 lead. Zenit were probably thinking that the match is over, however, after great display in the last three sets, the Belgian side has won the game and scored one of the most important wins in the recent history.

Jelte Maan was the best scorer in Maaseik with 20 points, while on the other side Maxim Mikhailov had 29 and Tsvetan Sokolov 25.

We saw one more upset tonight as ACH Volley Ljubljana downed Kuzbass Kemerevo in five sets as well. Bozidar Vucicevic had an absolute amazing game, scoring 36 points for the Slovenian side, while Yaroslav Podlesnyk had 21 points on the other side.

Also, Perugia, Fakel and Jastrzebski have scored 3-0 victories in tonight's matches against their rivals.

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.
