C.S.M. Volei Alba Blaj and Sistem9 Yeşilyurt İstanbul will play for the title in the 2021 CEV Women’s Volleyball Challenge Cup.


Hungary’s 1. MCM-Diamant Kaposvár failed to make another historical step for women’s volleyball in their country. They became the first Hungarian club to play the semifinal of any of the European cups. And their path was cut off right there as Romania’s C.S.M. Volei Alba Blaj won the rematch, too: 3-1 (23-25, 25-18, 27-25, 25-21). Ioana Maria Baciu tallied 24 points on the winning side. Serbian Sara Klisura and Azerbaijani Olena Kharchenko scored 18 points apiece for Kaposvár.

It seems that duels between Turkish rivals Sistem9 Yeşilyurt İstanbul and THY İstanbul are destined to be resolved in the tie-break. Just like in the 1st leg yesterday, Yeşilyurt achieved a win and scheduled a gold medal encounter against Alba. Romanian sensation Alexia-Ioana Căruțașu was once again the leading scorer for the winners but she didn’t repeat a 47-point output from the previous game. The teenager put down 27 points, while Zeynep Sude Demirel set up 5 of the team’s 20 blocks. Ebrar Karakurt highlighted THY with 33 points. Aslı Kalaç made 4 blocks.

ITA M: Perugia focused on bringing Grbić

He signed a 2-years contract with Zaksa last year. He won Polish Cup with them, not sure what happened so Zaksa lost the championship. They kicked out Lube and Zenit from the Champions League and have a good chance of becoming European champion although Trentino didn't win anything this year so this is their last chance.
He started his coaching career with Perugia so everything is possible... Reply

Unfortunately there is no future for Russell. He is old and after this operation, he cannot recover and remain the same level before :( Reply

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
