We will watch the all-Italian derby in the playoff semifinals of the 2021 CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League.


The titleholders Igor Gorgonzola Novara beat Turkey’s Fenerbahçe Opet İstanbul by a 3-1 (25-16, 25-18, 16-25, 25-11) in the rematch of the quarterfinals of the 2021 Women’s Champions League. Thus, the team coached by Stefano Lavarini scheduled a duel against big rivals from the home country, A.Carraro Imoco Conegliano, in the penultimate step of the strongest club competition in the Old Continent.

Novara secured promotion to the semis by taking the first 2 sets before their head coach gave room for backups. Belgian Britt Herbots was the top scorer on the winning side with 11 points. Cuban Melissa Vargas notched 17 points on the losing side.

Imoco gave absolutely no chance to Savino Del Bene Scandicci in the 2nd leg. After 3-2 from the first match, Davide Santarelli’s ladies swept their Serie A rivals by a 3-0 and recorded the 52nd win in a row in all competitions. Paola Egonu stood out on the winning side with 16 points. American Kimberly Hill had 83 % reception (67 % excellent). The Pole Magdalena Stysiak scored 13 points for Scandicci, while Bulgarian Elitsa Vasileva made 85 % reception (13 digs, 46 % excellent).

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
