Yeșilyurt make a record in the Challenge Cup, with only 46 points lost in a final game. Actually the away game equals the home game, so Yeșilyurt get the best 2 scores in the history of Challenge Cup finals.
Oppositely Alba Blaj will hold the record for the worst score achieved. Alba Blaj also holds the records for the worst score in a Champions League final (2018, 45 points) and the worst score in a Women's CEV Cup final (2019, 49 points).

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
