Allianz Powervolley Milano defeated Halkbank Ankara in the 1st leg of the 2021 CEV Men’s Volleyball Challenge Cup semifinals easier than expected.


Italy’s Milano downed Turkey’s Halkbank on the road in the 1st leg of the 2021 Men’s Challenge Cup semifinals: 3-1 (25-22, 22-25, 18-25, 13-25). The result in Turkey, which was achieved easier than expected, now puts SuperLega side in a better position in regard to the advancement to the final compared to their rivals.

Slovenian Tine Urnaut top-scored Milano with 19 points just as Cuban Fernando Hernández tallied on the losing side.

Ziraat Bankası SK Ankara have surprisingly fallen to VK Lvi Praha in the Czech Republic. The Turkish team was far from the play that brought them a long streak of victories in the home league, losing in straight sets today.

Slovenian Matej Mihajlovic stood out on the winning side with 22 points (including 6 aces) through 70 % attack (16/23).

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
